DECATUR BEER FESTIVAL REEMERGES AS SUDS

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 9/16/22

Saturday, October 15

(Simply Us Doing Our Share)
Saturday, October 15 at Legacy ParkA Decatur Backyard Beer Experience
70+ Craft Beers, Quality Eats, Rockin’ Live Tunes100% of ticket proceeds will be donated to Legacy Park 
The well-known, twenty-plus year-old Decatur Beer Festival has been on hiatus for two years due to the pandemic. But wait no more! This fall, the beer-centric community event will reemerge on Saturday, October 15, as SUDs–Simply Us Doing Our Share–a new, Decatur-based nonprofit organized by the same gentlemen who crafted Decatur Beer Festival–Dave Blanchard, Tom Moore, and Mike Gallagher, known for Brick Store PubLEON’s Full ServiceGood Word BrewingGiving Kitchen, and now SUDS. All proceeds raised from SUDS 2022 will be donated to those organizations located at Legacy Park, conveniently located on the southeastern side of Decatur, just 1.3 miles from downtown–the new home of SUDs 2022.

Mike Gallagher shared, “We look at 2022 as a reintroduction year for various reasons. First, our family and I used our downtime over the last two years to do some deep critical thinking about how we could bring back our beloved beer festival in a stronger and “better” way than before. Think of SUDS as a reimagined  beer festival with a more strategic focus on the approach–a new way to give back to those who are the backbone of our Decatur home. We have rebranded and found a new spot to call home at Legacy Park so, we are ready to crush the craft beer list and raise the bar regarding nonprofit awareness!”

SUDS tickets were offered pre-sale to long-time guests of the Decatur Beer Festival, and today, they are on sale to the general public.Tickets are $60 until midnight on September 14. After that, ticket prices will increase to $65 on September 15. This 21+ and up event will include a SUDS beer glass, unlimited sips from over 70 craft beer makers, and tunes from Blacktop Rockets, Penelope Road and Bogey, and The Viceroy, who will turn it up on an Amplify sound stage. Tons of sipping and rocking while guests visit various booths to learn about the surrounding organizations that focus on everything from growing organic vegetables, to raising kids with art and music, and how the community can support the houseless population.

Fine food by Terry Koval of The Deer and The Dove, Shay Lavi of Nur Kitchen, and Third Space will be available throughout the day. 
Over 1.6 million dollars from the Decatur Beer Festival’s twenty-year run was previously donated to various nonprofits. SUDS will highlight donating to the more than two-dozen organizations and nonprofits at Legacy Park in 2022.

About SUDs–Simply Us Doing Our Share
A Decatur backyard beer experienceSUDS was created by three crafty gentlemen, Dave Blanchard, Tom Moore, and Mike Gallagher, from Brick Store Pub, who had downtime on their hands during the 2020 pandemic, so they used their time wisely to reinvigorate the uber-successful Decatur Beer Festival, and SUDs was born. 100% of SUDS 2022 ticket proceeds will be donated to help support a variety of the nonprofits located at Legacy Park–the 2022 SUDs location. If proceeds allow, SUDS can additionally support other local nonprofits via an RFP for grants following the festival’s first year. The SUDS team is a locally supportive, community-involved, entire service festival. Join us on Saturday, October 15, 2022 Noon to 4:00 pm.

From the Craft Brewers Guild: The celebration will feature 60+ member breweries, special VIP event, collaboration beers & more

The Peach’s State’s only festival dedicated solely to Georgia’s independent craft breweries arrives at Atlantic Station April 1 and 2.

Hosted by the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild (GCBG), the event is much more than a festival – it’s a celebration of the state’s thriving craft beer industry.

“Our local breweries are what make our communities great places to live, work and visit, and this event is the perfect opportunity to showcase our statewide community, all while enjoying delicious beer,” says Joseph Cortes, executive director of the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild. “These small businesses generate more than a billion dollar economic impact annually for the state, local communities and the tourism and hospitality industries, and this festival is all about highlighting the tremendous impact they have.”

The money raised from the festival will go to support and help promote and advance the common interests of GCBG’s members and Georgia’s independent, small breweries.

“Since 2015, the number of craft breweries in Georgia has grown from 45 to over 130,” says Cortes. “Yet, despite that, Georgia is still one of the most restrictive states for breweries to conduct business. The proceeds from the festival will help us continue to advocate on behalf of our members and the brewery community as a whole.”

The weekend kicks off with a special VIP preview Friday, April 1, from 6 to 10 p.m. Attendees will be the first to taste 20+ special collab beers from brewery participants, as well as hear from brewers about the beers, their process, ingredients and inspiration. A panel of 15 experienced Beer Judge Certification Program-certified judges will award gold, silver and bronze to the top three winners of the collab contest.

Then, on Saturday, April 2, ticket holders will enjoy a full day of all things Georgia craft beer, including 60+ GCBG member breweries that will be pouring 250+ homegrown beers. Additionally, Saturday festival-goers will also get to try all the collab brews created exclusively for the festival.

In addition to delicious beer, there will also be a number of Georgia wineries present, as well as popular local food trucks, live entertainment, craft vendors and more. For more information and to buy tickets, please visit: georgiacraftbrewersfestival.com.

The festival announcement comes following the GCBG’s 2022 Georgia Beer Day, which took place on March 5.

The annual observance, which is organized by the GCBG and benefits its member breweries, is a daylong celebration of Georgia’s vibrant craft beer industry.  This year, 70 breweries across the state participated and sold a limited edition full-color collector’s pint glass to help raise funds for the GCBG and its members. As a result of the glass sales, the Guild raised over $15,000.
