Hogs and Hops (Masquerade)

Date: Saturday, April 11th

Time: 1pm to 5pm

Last year, it was all about the smoked butts and the Brussels sprouts, what will this year bring? It’s time again for Hogs and Hops: tons of tasty pork products to nosh on and the perfect beer to pair it with.


Every time I walk the red carpet into Opera nightclub, I immediately start hearing the theme song to The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. It’s a place filled with wonder, as I have decided is, chandelier wishes and caviar dreams. I kid, but it is a beautiful venue with ornate operatic elements, a full stage, VIP seating and a beautiful patio area. In this first annual, first time, Atlanta Wine Party put on by the wildly popular Atlanta Beer Festivals team goes upscale with their new Atlanta Wine Party. It was like going to a high end event with ladies all dressed up in their party dresses and men in their collared shirts and coats then juxtaposed by the regular beer festival goer with their pretzel necklaces. It made for wonderful people watching.

On a beautiful, warmer, almost spring day with the Atlanta skyline looming over Atlantic station was the 2015 Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival. What a way to kick-off the spring festival season where you could almost feel spring starting! From all types of beers, to high end bourbons, to food truck after food truck of BBQ, the festival had a little something for everyone and then some.

2015 Oakhurst Wine Crawl

Oakhurst turned out to be a cute little town! Being our first real wine crawl and festival, it had everything from Pinot Noirs to Pinot Grigios, as well as every type in between. Liz’s favorite was the Pepi Pinot Grigio, for white wine lovers everywhere! What made it even better was the festival extended out […]


You would have thought it was a late springtime day with the sun shining bright and the light, warm breeze coming over the park. There’s no denying Park Tavern at Piedmont Park is a beautiful venue with a striking skyline and park view. You notice the second you walk in that you’re in for a treat. This rarely beautiful February day, and Oysterfest was brought to you by Spiral Entertainment. They know how to gather people for one great party. Let’s pull out our shuckers and get shuckin’.

Beer Geek Carnival at Cypress Street Pint & Plate

Good burgers, good beers, and a fun carnival atmosphere were a win all the way around. The highlights were: The best burger in Atlanta, The Sublime Donut Burger paired with the Clown Shoes Imperial Stout (and one Porter) flight = best.meal.ever. It also didn’t hurt that there were fire wielders, circus acts, and acrobats on […]


After 5 years and dozens of beer festivals, Atlanta Winter Beer Fest sold out! It was filled to the brim, to the max, no Vacancy, packed like sardines, no Dogs Allowed (or Birds)! Alright, that last one was taken from one of my favorite Snoopy movies, but you get the drift. What was amazing was that it didn’t feel cramped with several areas to hang out including the local tent, swag and food tents, outside, and then the three Masquerade inside areas. I think the only place I felt like I couldn’t breathe was in Hell and that’s another story for another time. Wink. Let’s dive in.
