Beer + Carnival = We Had You @ Beer, Right?


It isn’t officially spring until you’ve attended an event that’s ½ carnival & ½ beerfest. I’ve always said that. Don’t try and tell me differently. So you better believe I was PUMPED when I added the Atlantic Station Beer Carnival to my calendar this month – Saturday, April 5, 2014.

When I came to Atlanta to interview for a job right out of college I stayed with my friend Jordan for the weekend to explore and see if I wanted to move to the dirty dirty for a couple years. Jordan suggested we attend a beer festival (hosted at a mall – say WHAT?) so I could get a taste of the city. Clearly I was in. And, from what I remember, it was a BLAST! Fast forward an undisclosed number of years and I get to relive that weekend again! There is NOTHING better than a beer festival at the mall. It combines my two favorite activities that I tend to do in excess – shopping and drinking!


I don’t know who these people are, but they look like the type I want to be friends with!

This event has 100+ beers to choose from – so plenty of IPA’s for Stripes and more than enough fruity, girly, light beers for me! We are also super excited for the food – because calories don’t count when you are eating outside.Apparently, there is a vendor called Jalapeno Corndog Concessions and the logo is below. HILARIOUS. I will be buying 20. Please join me.


Tickets for the show are $40 in advance ($50 at the door if you are a slacker.) Or if you feel like Kim and Kanye VIP tickets are $65 and come with awesome perks like early access and seating areas where the commoners won’t bug ya.
