Beer & Whiskey Fest to Benefit Gulf Coast Relief

11:01 AM Friday 7/30/10 |   |

We knew something was up when several of our coworkers started talking about going to Atlanta on Sept. 5.

Then we saw the announcement heralding the 6th annual Beer & Whiskey Festival and all the pieces suddenly fell into place.

The festival, held Labor Day weekend at Atlanta’s Park Tavern, features, well, beer and whiskey, barbecue and a musical lineup consisting of five tribute bands, including Guns N’ Roses facsimile Mr. Brownstone, Def Leppard doppelgänger Hysteria, U2 & Van Halen tribute band Running With Desire, Police tribute band Invisible Sun aka Sun Domingo and Green Day cover band Nimrod. DJ Suspense will spin between bands.

The Beer & Whiskey Fest started six years ago when Park Tavern owner Paul Smith along with a local radio station and special events company USA Entertainment worked together to raise $6,000 for the Red Cross after Hurricane Katrina almost turned out the lights in New Orleans for good. Since then, the festival has always been about charity, and has spent four years raising funds for PAWS, Atlanta’s largest no-kill animal shelter.

This year the Beer & Whiskey Festival will raise dollars for the Nature Conservancy and its efforts to protect coastal wetlands and marshes, reestablish habitats for threatened species and help bring the Gulf back to pre-BP-oil-spill standards.

Of course, reading this far into this posting means only one thing – you’ve come for the beer & whiskey. Or maybe just the beer. Or whiskey. Or perhaps just a shot and a chaser. No matter, here’s the info you seek.

The festival’s cash bar features George Dickel Tennessee Whisky #12, Crown Royal Black Canadian Whisky, Bushmills and Bulleit Bourbon. Beers include Harp Lager, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, Red Stripe Lager Light and Smirnoff Premium Malt. For mixed drinks they’re serving up a potent potable called Blue Berry Lemonade.

There will also be a charity whisky tasting and a charity auction. For more info, click here for the Beer & Whiskey Festival’s website.
