Most people think of spring as the kickoff off to festival season, but Atlanta's breweries are offering up an early start to the festival season.
From Atlantic Station to the Delta Flight Museum, February might be short on days, but not on good times.
Here are a few:
2-6 p.m. Feb. 11
1998 Delk Industrial Blvd. SE, Marietta. Tickets range from $12 to $20. https://www.freshtix.com/events/red-hare-peach-launch
Red Hare is launching Ain't that a Peach, a seasonal peach Berliner Weisse, and throwing a party to celebrate. The Marietta brewer is giving samples, pint glasses and a six pack to take home in celebration; music by Highbeams and food from Carne 250.
7 p.m. Feb. 14. Venkman's 740 Ralph McGill Blvd NE, Atlanta, GA. Tickets are $127. venkmans.com
What better way to say 'I love you' than with beer? Venkman's and Creature Comforts can't think of one, so they've placed their bets on for yet another year on stirring the romance with the Valentine's Day Beer Dinner. Venkman's Executive Chef, Nick Melvin, will be serving a romantic five-course meal. Each course will be paired with a beer from Creature Comforts.
2-6 p.m. Feb. 19
SweetWater Brewing Company, 195 Ottley Dr, Atlanta. Tickets are $30 advance/$40 at the door.https://sweetwater.xorbia.com/20th-anniversary-party/
It seems like only yesterday that SweetWater Brewery opened on Ottley Drive, but this month that fishy beer maker of 420 and all the other iconic Atlanta beers turns 20 years old. Celebrate the anniversary with live music and more, from everyone's favorite riverkeeper.
7-10 p.m. Feb. 25
Delta Flight Museum, 1060 Delta Blvd., Atlanta. Tickets are $55 in advance and $75 at the door. DeltaMuseum.org events.
Nothing says FAA compliance like combining airplanes and drinking, and now you too can see the history of Atlanta's great airline and taste the flavors of its rising stars in beer making −more than 30 of Georgia's top craft brewers will be in attendance −at the Delta Flight Museum's Hops in the Hangar event on Feb. 25. The catered event will feature live music, prizes and more in the shadows of a 767 jet.
