Neighborly News: September/October-ish Events

Howdy, neighbors! So. About these past few months…summer turned out to be a total wash, pun intended. It’s safe to say we’re all quite thrilled to be leaving the rainiest summer of all time behind us – bring on the fall festivities! September and early October are already shaping up to be quite eventful (and hopefully drier). Festivals, beer dinners, a whole month of winning at all Beer Growler locations, just to name a few choice things.

We’ve even got some major coastal fun going down (lookin’ at you, Saint Simons/ Brunswick). Mark your calendars, folks:

The Beer GrowlerEntire Month of September: We’re Brewery of the Month at all 6 Atlanta-area Beer Growler locations. Get a free glass w/growler fill and a chance to win Braves tickets! Not every store will have on the same beer all the time, so definitely check out their online menu or call to see what’s pouring. Good luck, and GO BRAVES!
