Festival season is upon us and one of my favorite beer festivals is coming up on May 19th: East Atlanta Beer Festival. Join 4,000 beer loving pals with over 175 beers in Brownwood Park next to East Atlanta Village this Saturday. Tickets are still available, but will sell out before the event so get on that ASAP. Once again, EABF has teamed up with 4sqATL to provide some check-in fun for festival attendees. Also, the fest is partnering with local Atlanta start-up Badgy to provide Twitter based badges at the event which will be similar to last year.
Once the ‘East Atlanta Beer Fest‘ venue hits swarm level (50 simultaneous check-ins), the first 100 people to visit the 4sqATL table will receive a free EABF koozie. Also, the first 20 people who show they unlocked the 2012 4sqDay badge will receive a free 2012 Atlanta 4sqDay t-shirt!! Not only will the 4sqATL table at the fest have these great giveaways…we’ll also have three beers for you to sample that will not be available anywhere else inside the festival. That’s right, exclusive beers just for foursquare users!
Badgy is providing two different Twitter based badges at the event (my Badgy profile). The text needed to unlock the EABF logo badge will be tweeted out from the East Atlanta Beer Fest Twitter account (@EABF) on May 19th. The other badge featuring the EABF Beer Bear will take some work. Visit the 4sqATL table inside the festival for the secret hashtag phrase that will unlock the badge.
One of the great things about the East Atlanta Beer Fest is that it is a non-profit event designed to raise money for local community organizations. I’m excited to be participating in this annual event and looking forward to seeing y’all out there. Let’s get this festival Super Duper or Epic Swarming!!
