BEER EVENT: HOToberFest 2009, Atlanta-GA
2nd Annual HOToberFest to return to Glenwood Park October 3rd
The southeastâ€™s only consumer-judged beer competition and sustainability festival is coming back for 2009, even bigger and better than before. Returning to Glenwood Park, HOToberFest promises to deliver its unique combination of craft beer, exciting live music, fun food, local artists, and pro-sustainability messaging.
The centerpiece of this one-day event is the beer-tasting, featuring over 110 craft beers from around the country and around the world. Festival attendees will have the opportunity to not only taste, but to cast their ballot for the winner of the best brew at HOToberFest .
A non-profit event, HOToberFest raises awareness and funds for three specific pro-sustainability charities. 100% of event proceeds will go to Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, Trees Atlanta, and Dialogue Start One. Thereâ€™s no better way to support these incredibly worthwhile causes and have a fantastic day sampling the best craft beers in the world.
The beer tasting area of HOToberFest is 21-and-over only, but thereâ€™s plenty of family-friendly fare. A large, free-of-charge public area will feature the music pavilion, and our World Market will include local artists, green info. affiliates, concessions, and kid-friendly activities. A variety of musical acts will perform throughout the day representing a wide variety of popular styles. As for food, popular local restaurants will be selling their specialties, along with traditional festival favorites like genuine German brats and BBQ.
There will be both General Admission and VIP tickets for the beer tasting. Benefits of the VIP ticket include: access to special brews not available to the General Admission ticket holders, exclusive hors dâ€™ oeuvre hour, flat screen TVâ€™s playing SEC football games, and more. Prices for General Admission Tickets will be $30 in advance and $35 at the gate. VIP Tickets will be $50 in advance or $55 at the gate, if still available.
