The Macon Beer Fest

Started in 2010, the Macon Beer Fest has grown into one of Georgia’s premier craft beer events. The event offers over 50 varieties of beer for its regular ticket holders and several additional special beers for its VIP guests. What makes the event unique, is that its purpose is to educate men about the risks of prostate cancer. You can say it’s a health fair disguised as a beer festival – It’s a party for a cause!

The Macon Beer Fest is put on by the Rotary Club of Downtown Macon and Main Street Macon.
