Blacktoberfest is an awesome festival kicking off this annual tradition in Atlanta, a celebration of beer, food, art, and entertainment that’ll take place during the second weekend of October. This will be the third installment of the beloved festival, founded by Black Brew’s Culture in Saint Louis.
Finally the festival has made its way to Atlanta, promising “most impactful Black craft beer festival the country has seen to date!”
The festival will take over one of Atlanta’s newest breweries (and one of our personal favorites), Hippin Hops, which is one of the largest Black-owned breweries in the United States. Their Stone Mountain location will play host to Blacktoberfest, where the best of the best will unite for this annual celebration.
Other than Hippin Hops, other breweries taking part in Blacktober fest include (but is not limited to) Dirtbag Ales, Crowns & Hops, Funkytown Brewery & Alantucky. There’s even exciting collaborations with other local breweries like Elsewhere Brewing, Three Tavern’s Brewing and Sweetwater Brewing Co.
Attendees can also expect local food vendors and a stellar line-up of entertainment. Performers and DJ’s include Rasta Root, mikeflo, and DJ Kerosene General Admission to Blacktoberfest cost $55, with other packages available with an extra charge, like Early Admission and VIP. Visit their website for more information and tickets.
However, this is just one of the many ways to celebrate Oktoberfest in Atlanta. There are so many events popping up in and around the city throughout the month of October to honor the German holiday.
