Tap Into Classic City Brew Fest April 9th

Beer Week in Athens ends with the 22nd annual Classic City Brew Fest on April 9th. Life is good!


22nd Annual
One of the Southeast’s Longest-Running & Favorite Craft Beer Fests!


  • Be with us at the Classic City Brew Fest on April 9 from 2:30 to 6:00 PM to celebrate craft beer in Athens, GA!
  • Graduate Hotel Athens provides three ballrooms, an outdoor terrace, music hall, and cask ale pavilion where attendees can enjoy beers in an attractive, uncrowded set of fun venues. Stay the night in a gorgeous, newly remodeled, discounted hotel room at the hotel.
  • Enjoy great tours of local breweries and special tappings and tastings at Trappeze, Catch 22, Chops & Hops, The Pine, Copper Creek and more during Athens Craft Beer Week that culminates on Sunday with the Classic City Brew Fest!
  • All areas of the festival are covered, and the event takes place rain or shine.
  • There will be NO parking at Graduate Athens.  Please park in in a downtown deck or street space and walk to Graduate Athens.
  • ALL festival beers come directly from licensed wholesale beer distributors.



  • Tickets are only $43.50 plus tax and a low Xorbia processing fee! This is the region’s best beer fest deal!
  • No refunds on tickets for any reason.
  • Ticket price includes beer, cask ales, taster cup, program booklet and live music. EVERY ticket is an all-access VIP ticket!
  • 21+ only – NO children or pets please.
  • If tickets do NOT sell out online in advance, a limited number MAY be available for $50 cash or check at the door. No guarantees on ticket availability at the door.
  • Print out your Xorbia ticket or bring on your smartphone to the festival for entry.
  • Bring photo ID to confirm age.
  • Tickets are transferable to other persons.  We do NOT need advance notice on ticket transfers.
  • DD tickets: This event provides great entertainment that is worth the price of admission. The ticket price also reflects a donation for a charity. We believe in drinking responsibly, and there will be taxis at the venue at all times during the festival. There are also hotels within walking distance, with the Foundry offering a very special rate for attendees (see below). Considering all this and the limited space at the event, we are not able to offer designated driver tickets at this time.
