About ABF

Atlanta Beer Festivals concepts, plans, and produces beer festivals in Atlanta, GA throughout the year. We didn’t invent the beer fest, but we have been working hard to create a superior beer fest experience. We combine a great beer selection with live music, tasty food options, and fun attractions.

Our Mission is simple: “To Help Atlanta Celebrate Beer.”

We do our best to support and promote Atlanta’s local breweries, and find tasty and interesting beers from the many craft breweries around the country.
Check out our Local Brewers page to learn more about what Atlanta has to offer.
