LIVE! AT THE BATTERY TEAMS UP WITH TERRAPIN BEER CO. TO HOST SECOND ANNUAL BREW FEST

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 7/21/22

Will Feature Tastings of Over 100 Beers, Local Vendors, Live Music, Games & More

 

Held from 3-6pm on the Lawn Between Live! at the Battery & Terrapin’s Atlanta Brewery & Taproom 

 

 Live! at The Battery – the entertainment destination located in the heart of The Battery Atlanta – is teaming up with Athens-based brewery Terrapin Beer Co. to host the second-annual Brew Fest on Saturday, August 13 from 3-7pm at The Battery Atlanta. Bringing together beer enthusiasts and brewers, many local and craft-focused, the event invites attendees to taste over 100 beers, listen to live music on The Plaza stage, shop items from local vendors, play games and more.

Featured breweries – stationed outside at Live! at The Battery and Terrapin’s Atlanta Brewery and Taproom, plus on the lawn between the two – will include Terrapin Beer Co., Second Self Beer Co., Scofflaw Brewing Co., Gate City Brewing, Steady Hand Beer Co, Dry County Brewing Co, Monday Night Brewing, New Realm Brewery, Orpheus Brewing and many more. They will pour fan favorites alongside rare and experimental brews.

General admission ($30 early bird / $40 regular) and VIP ($60 early bird / $70 regular) tickets are now available here. Each ticket includes entry into the event, a souvenir tasting glass and unlimited beer tastings. VIP ticket holders will also enjoy exclusive access to a VIP area with an elevated buffet plus a swag bag. 

In 2017, Terrapin became the first craft brewery in Georgia to open a second location, with the opening of the Atlanta Brewery and Taproom at The Battery across from Live! At The Battery. In addition to producing many of its year-round and seasonal brands, Terrapin’s Atlanta brewery and taproom serves as its Research and Development pipeline, testing new beers to potentially go to market.

A one-of-a-kind place to catch sports, dine in style, sip cold beer and crafted cocktails, play games and do a bit of bull riding and line dancing, Live! The Battery plays host to some of Atlanta’s most fun food and drink events. Ongoing happenings include Girls Night Out with food and drink specials every Thursday from 8-11pm; Freedom Friday, which welcomes military personnel, vets, first responders and public service members to skip the line, get free cover (credentials required) and enjoy drink specials once a month; and Silent Saturday, inviting guests to grab a pair of headphones and get in the groove with beats from local DJs.

Historic Fourth Ward Park

Friday, October 11th and Saturday, October 12th

Oktoberfest Atlanta, produced by Atlanta Sport and Social Club, will be back for 2019 in Historic Fourth Ward Park on Friday, October 11 from 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm and Saturday, October 12 from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm. In celebration of all things German, the festival is in its fourth year and will be bigger than ever with more food vendor choices and multiple Oktoberfest-style beer tents throughout the park–absolutely no shortage of frosty brews for ticket holders. The celebration is the largest German festival to take place in Atlanta — a tremendous party complete with live polka music, popular food vendors, costumes, and even a dog parade. The festival will attract approximately 7,000 attendees over the two days — up from 5,000 in 2018.

This year local Atlantans and nationally recognized artists GREG MIKE, founder and creative director of AVE Agency and Gallery and Karen Anderson Singer, Principal Artist and Director of Tiny Doors ATL, will collaborate artistically with Oktoberfest. GREG MIKE has been named Ceremonial Keg Tapper while Karen Anderson Singer will also make an appearance.

“We love the cultural experience that Oktoberfest Atlanta brings to our city. It is a fusion of traditional Oktoberfest experiences such as the ceremonial keg tapping, with a hint of creative, Atlanta-style fun such as the pretzel toss! We are thrilled that we have grown our attendees in our 4th year, and we look forward to continuing the festival’s growth, partnerships with local nonprofits, local and national polka bands, German food, and games.” shares Catie Schreiman, Director of Events, Atlanta Sport and Social Club.

Oktoberfest guest experiences include three different beer gardens including official Oktoberfest craft beer sponsor Bell’s Brewing Beer Garden,Spaten Franziskaner Brau Biergarten — one of the original Oktoberfest beers of Germany — featuring four Spaten varieties, Oktoberfest Optimizer Lager, and Dunkel and a German Bier Garden with assorted German beers. In addition, Michelob Ultra, Bon & Viv Sparkling Seltzer, and craft cocktails including Bulleit Bourbon, Lunazul Tequila, Smirnoff Vodka, as well as various wines will be flowing from an Airstream trailer.

This year, Bud Light will sponsor a premium College Football Viewing Experience. The bar has a handful of built-in, flat screen televisions and a giant 12’x7.5′ LED display for guests to enjoy the college football games.

For those active guests, there will be an abundance of games including Oktoberfest competitions such as stein hoisting contests, the brawt toss, keg roll racing, the pretzel toss, and a whimsical dog parade.

German-inspired food for purchase will include Atlanta BBQ pros Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q featuring a specially made Oktoberfest Dog with house sauerkraut, apples, and Arches Brewing Pilsner with chutney garnish. As well as family owned and operated Woodstock Pretzel Company, Petite Violette who will be serving up Schnitzel, sauerkraut, and potato salad — plus many more!
Also, a new addition to the festival, thanks to The German Cultural Foundation, culinary vendor, The German Food, will fly in from the homeland and participate with a limited, authentic menu.

Live music includes national act, LynnMarie & The Nashville Polka Guys — LynnMarie is in the Polka National Hall of Fame, Sherri & Larry AKA “The Gluckliches Trio,” Bob Planner (solo accordionist), and local Atlanta acts,Ty Reynolds Band and All The Locals. Plus, DJ OneNate will perform throughout on both days.

Local nonprofit support is an important focus for festival owners Atlanta Sport and Social Club. Several nonprofits will benefit from ticket sales including, Releash Atlanta, Concrete Jungle, Junior Chamber International Atlanta Chapter, and Playworks GA. Releash Atlanta has been a continuous partner with the festival for the last three years. They are a 501c3, not for profit, 100% volunteer run, charitable organization that focuses on saving dogs from high kill shelters throughout our state.
