The Suwanee Beer Fest has become a tradition for thousands of beer lovers in the Metro Atlanta area and beyond, with some fans traveling as far away as California for the experience.

Returning to the Beer Fest this year, in an even bigger and bolder fashion, is the Home Brew Competition sponsored by home-brewing supply company – Brew Depot. The Suwanee Beer Fest is opening the Home Brew Competition to 400 registrants who will be judged by professionals across all BJCP Beer categories (no meads or ciders). This competition has become nationally renowned as the 2012 Best of Show winner, Josh Rachel, went on to found Jekyll Brewing Company in 2013.
To continue with the last three year’s tradition, the 2014 Suwanee American Craft Beer Fest will donate a portion of all proceeds to Kingdom Kids, a Suwanee area nonprofit that grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.
