It’s almost that time of year again – time for the 7th Annual Suwanee American Craft Beer Fest! Last year was the biggest and best year yet, and event organizers this year have promised to top it! Taking up the entire footprint of Suwanee Town Center Park, Suwanee Beer Fest continues to grow in size while maintaining the reputation as one of the best beer festivals in the South.
The new and improved layout at the festival last year saw festival attendees benefit from shorter lines, more bathrooms and easier navigation throughout the festival. Surprises like Giant Jenga, a live bagpiper and Wii dance competitions kept the festival surprising and fun while keeping the integrity of a true craft beer lover’s festival. As the festival continues to grow, event organizers have promised to stay committed to improving the festival attendees experience.
The Largest Craft Beer Festival in Georgia
Each year thousands of people descend on Suwanee Town Center Park to drink their share of unlimited samples of over 300 different craft beers while decked out in their best St. Paddy’s gear. The festival boasts live entertainment, delicious food, festival games, art, local vendors as well as being the home for one of the largest home brew competitions in the state of Georgia- sponsored by Brew Depot! Each year local home brewers go head to head in a battle to be crowned “Best in Show!” Let’s not forget the “Best Beer in Georgia” competition; local Georgia breweries each submit a beer to be chosen by festival attendees as the best with live tracking updated in real-time with each pour with DraftServ technologies.
