The Ponce de Leon Beer Fest
When searching for a theme for their craft-beer expo, The Ponce de Leon Beer Fest's organizers realized they already had one in their venue––the Yaarab Temple––which sits on Ponce de Leon Avenue. The explorer famously sought the Fountain of Youth, so they decided to actually create one. In doing so, they asked their participating breweries to bring their freshest ideas and most experimental brews, making their taps flow with some of the the youngest beers available. More than 30 breweries––including Red Brick, Monks Meadery, and Orpheus Brewing––complied.
To keep the experience as enjoyable as possible, they festival's creators decided to limit the number of guests to 1,500. They also brought in enough bands to book two stages for the duration of the event. They even invited a number of food trucks to fend off guests' hunger with their edible engine parts. Proceeds from the event benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children.

“I know brewing is a seasonal craft so some beers/ales are not always available. I also understand that each brewery is proud of something, and sometimes they all are competing for the holy grail of that moment. The number of breweries you had (I think 30) was excellent, with each having a minimum of 2 brews means there were about 60 to try!!! And this isn’t even for the ones that had the VIP passes! Great job!! Now, I like IPAs and stouts, and I know they are a big thing right now, but approximately half of the brews were one of those two. Many were good, some great, and some not so great, BUT… I wish the types of beer would have cross over a few more lines. I would have liked to have more of a selection that included but not limited to, Hefeweizen, Pale lager, Witbier, Pilsner, Berliner Weisse, Weissbier, Saison, wheat beer, rye beer, oatmeal stout, India Pale Ale, etc. I know you had a few that I mentioned but it really would have been more enjoyable to have some other styles to try beside the two most popular (IPAs and stouts).”
“This was a great event. People were friendly and the beer plentiful ”
“Most of it is inside, so not to worry on dressing real warm. Great time!!”
