East Atlanta Craft Beer Festival Returns to Brownwood Park

By Carlen Hultgren
The 13th Annual East Atlanta Craft Beer Festival (EACBF) returns to East Atlanta’s Brownwood Park, on May 21, and it looks to be better than ever. From a great beer selection to early access VIP entry to rocking music, this is an event not to be missed!
Proceeds from the festival go to the East Atlanta Foundation which is an all-volunteer non-profit entity that funds projects that make East Atlanta a great place to live. A complete list of the local organizations that benefit can be found on the EACBF website.
General admission will get you an EACBF 2016 souvenir pint glass, sampling of over 200 craft beers as well as entertainment from live bands and DJ’s all day long. In addition, there is a VIP admission which will get you all of the above as well as early entrance (12:00pm) to the festival including both the VIP area and general festival area, expedited entrance line at the gate, VIP area with 12-15 beers not available to the general public, entrance to the VIP covered pavilion, VIP-only restroom facilities, and a VIP raffle for gift cards from local merchants and restaurants, as well as other great gifts from the sponsors.
Sampling cups are provided upon entry. One sampling cup is issued per attendee. Outside liquid containers are strictly prohibited; water will be available free of charge onsite. The cup and wristband are the ticket for entry and reentry; no cup or wristband, no reentry. You must be 21 to enter (absolutely no children admitted), no pets, and no backpacks. Over-the-shoulder camping chairs are encouraged.
The festival footprint will be the same as last year, which is the entire northern parcel of Brownwood Park at 1247 Portland Avenue. Local vendors will be selling a variety of food items that have been carefully selected to be pleasing to the festival-goer’s tastes. And as in years past, there will be awesome EACBF schwag.
Leave the kids and dogs at home and take some time to have a wonderful afternoon outside with other adult friends and neighbors, knowing that while whetting your palate, you will be supporting many deserving East Atlanta organizations that make the Village a great place to live for all residents.
Advance General Admission is $40, after May 14 that increases to $50. VIP admission is $75. The festival doors open at 12:00pm for those holding a VIP ticket, and 1:00pm for General Admission, and runs until 5:00pm.
About the East Atlanta Foundation: East Atlanta Foundation Inc., is a Georgia, Not-For-Profit corporation which has obtained IRS 501(c)(3) status. EAF is a totally volunteer-powered organization in that no person obtains any financial benefit from it, other than vendors for items such as tents and fencing or services such as security or Emergency Medical Services.
EAF was created in order to fulfill two primary goals:

  1. To raise awareness of the East Atlanta neighborhood with the larger metropolitan Atlanta area.
  2. To generate funds to be given as grants to worthy local groups engaged in projects that benefit the East Atlanta neighborhood.

The East Atlanta Foundation supports a variety of local organizations and initiatives and has given out over half a million dollars in grants, proceeds benefitting local community projects.
