Atlanta Hawks Embrace Growing Beer Scene

Someone at Hawks headquarters must be paying attention to the stats we’re seeing at CBC this week. The Southeast is the fastest growing craft beer community right now with no signs of stopping. To embrace and celebrate the surge of craft beer in the city of Atlanta, the Hawks will be hosting Hawktoberfest featuring 8 of the city’s breweries. Here’s the deal: before the game you can sample beers and meet the brewers who make it all possible as well as get your grub on with German food and rock out with live music. The best part – attendees can vote for their favorite brewery and the winner will have a brew of their choice carried at the arena throughout the playoffs. Breweries participating include Monday Night Brewing, Jail House Brewing, O’Dempseys, Wild Heaven, Red Brick, Terrapin, Sweetwater, and Blue Tarp.
