The creators of HOToberFest are pleased to present HOToberFest’s Barrel Aged Ball at the Historic Georgia Freight Depot in downtown Atlanta on Sunday August 16th. 2015 - (2 - 8 pm) marks the 7th year for the HOToberFest event series and the 1st year for the refined craft beer event. 


HOToberFest’s Barrel Aged Ball will provide a unique opportunity for regional beer enthusiasts to gather and sample truly unique draft beers from Georgia breweries, as well as a curated list of specialty bottles. Previous iterations of the festival have been heralded as some of the finest craft beer celebrations in the southeast. The Barrel Aged Ball is the new, condensed evolution of HOToberFest, maintaining the feature of pouring a one-of-a-kind beer directly from wood aging barrels, obtained from small batch spirit distillers. A select group of Georgia brewmasters will take these barrels and craft a unique beer recipe to age in the barrels and pour at the tasting. This event is truly an exclusive and unique tasting experience for new and alumni attendees. A Best of Show Award is determined by participants via voting tokens and will be presented to the brewery with the favorite barrel aged beer.

Additional premium features for all attendees include: a carefully curated selection of bottles of seasonal, rare and collectable beers poured throughout the evening; two food tastes from a variety of options prepared by local, beer-centric chefs; the opportunity to vote for Best of Show from all barrel aged beer offerings. Atlanta food trucks will also be on site for additional food purchases.
