Save The Date: East Atlanta Beer Fest – May 19, 2012

Save the date.  East Atlanta Beer Fest will be held on May 19th, 2012.   2012 marks the 9th year of hosting the event.

This year there are a few improvements/enhancements to the festival.

– Expansion of the shaded Fest site by over 1/3 in Brownwood Park to include the entirety of the north end of the park (more room in the shade, very few additional attendees)

– Vendor Hospitality Area that includes dedicated port-a-john’s for Reps and non-alcoholic beverages

– More tables and improved configuration site-wide (to allow for more impressions per brewery and improve site flow)

– An improved vendor check-in location

Also, expect food trucks, bands, performers and more.  Proceeds of the festival go to support community projects in East Atlanta Village.

Tickets go on sale in April, 2012.  Check back soon. [EastAtlantaBeerFest]

Note: The 2012 EABF logo has not been released yet.  The above is taken from last years logo.

EABF Gets Techie & Badgy

East Atlanta BeerFest is this weekend.  In addition to over 200 beers, there will be some fun tech stuff for you to play with.

First, EABF announced Foursquare integration.   Upon checking into the festival, you unlock the ability to drink 3 more beers not offered to those not using the app:

Heavy Seas Brewing – Hang Ten. Weizenbock, 10% ABV

Terrapin Brewing – Double Feature. Dubbel, 7.7% ABV

Peak Brewing – King Crimson. Imperial Red Ale, 10% ABV.

In addition, once the festival is over 100 checkins, go to the merchandise tent for a koozie.  ALSO! The 1st 100 people who come by the tent with the shiny new EABF Fest badge get a Foursquare day koozie.

That’s not all.  Those festival goers with iPhones can download the official EABF app, which shows all the beers available at the festival.  The app shows what tables the beers reside, with an opportunity to add to your favorites, tweet about them, & upload pictures.  Available in the <iTunesStore>

There are less than 400 tickets left for EABF.  Make sure you get your tickets HERE
