It simply wouldn’t be October without amazing weather and even better beer.

Main Street Grayson hosts the 6th Annual Grayson Blues & Brews Craft Beer Festival in Grayson City Park on Saturday, October 24, 2015 from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. This festival was awarded the distinction of being Among the Best of Gwinnett by Gwinnett Magazine last year. There will be more than 100 craft brew samplings – along with a few of Grayson’s all-time favorite brews – in the secure park venue.

“We’re pleased that we will have significant offerings from Georgia breweries again this year,” said Gail Lane, the event coordinator. “We enjoy showcasing the new and innovative Georgia producers each year while sharing some of our favorite brews.”

This year’s Exclusive Craft Beverage Sponsor is Jail House Brewing, distributed by Eagle Rock Distributing. National recording artist Tinsley Ellis returns as this year’s headliner beginning at around 4 p.m. Tommy Talton will take the stage beginning at 2 p.m. to start the afternoon’s festivities.

General Admission tickets include a tasting stein and a full afternoon of sampling more than 100 brews. Pricing is $35 in advance; $40 at the door. VIP Admission is $55 and also includes seating, fast access, commemorative t-shirt and much more. Doorbuster Admission, allowing the ticket holder in the gate at 1:00 p.m., is an additional $15 and can only be purchased online WITH either a General Admission Ticket or a VIP Admission.

There are a limited number of tickets available as this is a gated venue. Tickets may be purchased at www.Grayson-BluesandBrews.com.
