For 19 years, the Classic City Brew Fest has been known as one of the Southeast's most enjoyable craft beer events.  It offers spacious sampling of 300 of the greatest world-class craft beers from around the planet, an amazing Cask Ale Pavilion with 15+ rare, one-off real ales, and live music from Playing on the Planet. The Classic City Brew Fest is a benefit for the Athens-Area Humane Society, so not only will you be enjoying some tasty brews, you'll be helping the animals!

Excellent reasons why the Classic City Brew Fest is Georgia's longest-running beer festival:

  • Brew Fest offers a huge variety of rare and world-class craft beers-including most regional brewpubs.
  • Attendees can vote for the People's Choice casks while they sip these one-off batches.
  • The Foundry Park Inn and Melting Point complex provides three ballrooms, an outdoor patio, music hall and outdoor cask pavilion for attendees to enjoy Brew Fest in an attractive, non-crowded set of fun venues.
  • Each ticket this year comes with a free digital subscription to Beer Connoisseur magazine.

On Friday and Saturday before the Brew Fest, you can enjoy great tours of Terrapin Beer Company and special tappings and tastings at Trappeze and Aromas [craft works] during Athens Craft Beer Weekend that culminates on Sunday with the Classic City Brew Fest!
