The Atlanta Hawks and Fizz invited local, brew-centric minded media to a sneak preview of the 2014 HAWKtoberfest during a recent game at Phillips Arena.
We were treated to a suite, snacks, and beers during the game, along with a tour of the event space. During the game we spoke with representatives from the Atlanta Hawks and Fizz to acquire everything you need to know about attending HAWKtoberfest.
What is HAWKtoberfest?
The Atlanta Hawks’ 2nd Annual HAWKtoberfest will take place at Philips Arena and celebrates Atlanta’s local craft breweries! You can enjoy offerings from local breweries, talk with the brewmasters, enjoy live music by Yacht Rock Revue, and sample craft beer treats from Happy Hour Confections.
What is the date and who are the Hawks playing?
HAWKtoberfest will take place at Philips Arena on March 21, 2014 during the Hawks vs. New Orleans Pelicans game from 6 PM to the end of the third quarter.
Where is the event space located?
HAWKtoberfest will take place on the second floor of Philips Arena (up the escalator across from HawksShop). Yacht Rock Revue will perform on the main court immediately following the game.
How much will all this cost?
Lowest price as of March 11, 2014 is $19 (this could change as demand increases, so we encourage people to buy early). Tickets can be purchased at Hawks.com. (Promo code: craftbeer).
Passport (sold separately at the event location only):
Includes (18) 3 oz. samples of beer and a plastic commemorative beer stein for $20.
Upon entrance, go to the second level of Phillips Arena to purchase a $20 passport. Attendees can vote for their favorites and the winner receives a tap inside RED, which is open during and after Hawks games and other ticketed events at the arena.
