“Sprinter” is headed out the door and warmer, sunnier days are on the horizon. Can’t you feel it? So let’s take advantage of what has to be better weather in the month of May and attend a few beer festivals. Shall we?
May Beer Festivals:
Kennesaw Beer and Wine Festival – Atlanta Beer Festivals and the Kennesaw Downtown Development Authority will host this even for the 5th time Saturday, April 28 from 1-5 p.m. Okay, we realize this isn’t technically in May, but it is close enough! This festival will have over 100 beers, featuring the local Georgia Breweries, and a select number of breweries from all over the country. This event will also feature over 25 wines and many ciders. As if that weren’t enough, there will also be live music!
