5th Annual Rome Beer Fest
The Fifth Annual Rome Beer Festival will be held Saturday, September 15, 2012 from 1pm to 5pm at Heritage Park in Rome, Georgia. The largest annual fundraiser for the Rome Area Council for the Arts, this year's festival will bring more than 75 beers for sampling.
"The wide selection from both large breweries and craft brewers is a chance for the people to try new things and learn about the art of beer" says co-director Erica Simpson McGinnis, "almost two-thirds of the beers will be brand new to the festival." Georgia's own Terrapin Brewing Company, Sweetwater, Monday Night, and Red Hare will be prominent as well as breweries from across the southeast.
Rome Beer Fest raises money for RACA through ticket sales and community sponsorships. RACA uses the funds to support local art and artists as well as arts education and awareness.
Live music will be provided by Jerry On the Moon, My Ninja, Shameless Natives, and a collection of beer cover songs performed by the Muletide Perkins Trio. In addition to live entertainment, there will be several arts-related activities including a photo booth and a live art demonstration.
