It's often claimed that Plato said, "He was a wise man who invented beer," right before he himself invented belching the ancient Greek alphabet. Let out your inner philosopher with this Groupon.
$34 for a Beer Socialite Admission Package ($69 Value)
Like every general-admission attendee, Beer Socialites get unlimited samples of 150 different craft beers, access to the games arena’s bouts of corn hole and human bowling, and the sweet serenades of live musicians. Additionally, they get one-hour early access to the festival, plus a souvenir backpack and pint glass to make traversing the grounds that much easier.
At last year's Grovetoberfest, more than 6,500 beer enthusiasts descended on Peacock Park for a celebration of seasonal beer, delicious food, and live music. This time around, the festival ratchets up the good times with an even bigger selection of beers to sample—more than 200, to be exact. Like the festival's guests, they come from all over the world, along with plenty of domestic craft brews as well. And besides sampling a world's worth of autumnal potions, attendees can ply their own wares in the Best Homebrew Contest, and learn to incorporate beer into their cooking routine in Milam's Kitchen Lab.
