After this crazy week of winter storm warnings, I’m ready for springtime, warmer weather and outdoor festivals. For goodness sake, it’s almost March! The Beer, Bourbon and BBQ Festival at Atlantic Station couldn’t have come at a better time; it’s a great chance to sample beer, bourbon and lots of delicious BBQ. And another plus is I’ll get to hang out with some of my favs like Cody of Cody Uncorked, Kristen of Highland & Rose and Milla of Happily Eating! What am I most looking forward to?
1) Samples of 60 craft beers and 40 styles of bourbon. Each guest receives a souvenir sampling glass to try everything to their heart’s desire! (Make sure to call Uber or SafeRide!)
2) Barbecue from some of Atlanta’s finest restaurants like The Pig & The Pearl and Sweet Auburn Barbecue. Expect to eat pulled pork, chicken, ribs, sausage and everything in between!
3) Entertainment such as live music and tasting seminars with Master Distillers, Brewmasters and Pit Masters on a variety of beer, bourbon and BBQ topics. I personally geek out when I can learn something new or different about aging bourbon or the barbecuing process!
4) Competitions such as the Drink Like a Lady contest, the Bacon Eating competition and the BBQ sauce challenge, though I think I could win with this recipe.
Do you have any weekend plans? If your Saturday is free, tickets are still on sale!
