Roswell residents may want to make haste if they want to enjoy a variety of beers this spring.
The 8th annual Roswell Beer Festival is happening March 21 and tickets are going so fast that organizers say there won’t be any general admission ones available for purchase at the door.
The event will take place in Roswell’s historic town square and will feature more than 400 craft beers along with gourmet food and live music. According to the website, the festival is set to include ales specifically brewed for the event and there’s no limit to how many tastings you can do.
“The Roswell Beer Festival is one of Georgia’s leading beer festivals,” reads an event description. “Presented by STAR House, 100% of the proceeds benefit local kids in need. Unlimited beer tastings, 3 ounce pours, with access to over 450+ different beers. Our festival is organized by style vs brewery, one of our attendees favorite aspects!”
Featured restaurants and the beer line up have yet to be announced, but that hasn’t stopped people from buying tickets. The VIP Experience level is already sold out and as of Jan. 22, more than 1,200 tickets have been sold. Organizers anticipate the total 1,500 general admission tickets available will be sold out by Monday. If you manage to snag a ticket, $60 gets you a souvenir tasting glass, tokens for local food and festival merchandise and all the beer you can responsibly enjoy. Tickets for designated drivers and a token package are available through March 20 and 21 respectively.
The Roswell Beer Festival first launched in 2012 and more than 200 guests arrived. That led to a $10,000 donation to STAR House, which manages the festival. By 2019, 2,000 guests raised more than $120,000 for the festival.
