Atlanta, Ga (PRWEB) September 11, 2014
Fadó Irish Pub in Buckhead has set out to up the beer festival ante this Fall with the Beer and Bourbon Review on Saturday, September 27, 2014. Not only will Atlanta beer lovers bask in the hottest selection of local, regional and European craft beers, but indulge in the top Bourbon brands of the South too. 75+ brews to be on hand, from over 15 local craft and International breweries, Fadó, located in the heart of Buckhead, has pulled out all the stops so that the average beer lover to the beer connoisseur will leave not only satisfied, but blown away by the unlimited sampling event. And, like any great American craft beer festival, Fadó Irish Pub is offering exclusive ticketing options for beer lovers of all levels.
“At Fadó, we know how to throw a good party,” says Kevin Ellis, general manager at Fadó. “We’ve been doing it for 18 years. But, the other thing that our customers trust us to deliver on is good beer and spirits. And, the Beer and Bourbon Review will do just that with the best craft brews and bourbons out there right now”
To start, the team assembled a top flight group of local, regional and International craft brewery and bourbon distilleries to sponsor* for the afternoon unlimited sampling event. At 1pm, doors will open early to the VIP ticket-holders to experience a private one-hour VIP Sweetwater Brewery Rooftop Patio Takeover where guests will have the opportunity to try specialty and anniversary brews.
At 2pm, the General Admission Unlimited Sampling Event kicks off and festival go-ers will receive a wristband and a 5 ounce souvenir sampling cup to maximize their 4 hour beer tasting adventure. The breweries are all showcasing their best brands and seasonal features to ensure that guests will enjoy a wide variety of beer styles and flavor profiles. Bourbon lovers will receive limited tickets to sample from the 9 different distilleries on hand at the event. There will be a special food station set up inside the pub offering festival-goers pulled pork BBQ sandwiches, ribs and chicken in addition to the Pub’s full regular menu. Live music, provided by local favorites, Kylie kicks off on the outdoor stage at 2pm and will keep the party going until 8pm and well after the beer event has ended with cracking covers and classic pub tunes.
After the sampling event ends at 6pm, the party will continue well into the night with live music outside until 8pm, cocktail stations, more beer and the DJ inside.
