On July 27, 2016, Macon Beer Company will host the Festie Besties Bottle Release Party at their brewery in downtown Macon to celebrate the release of bottled versions of two of their beers. Guests will receive take-home gifts of a 22 ounce bottle of each beer, Macon Movies and Macon Music.
There will be live entertainment from local bands Analog Existence and Hindsight, brewery tours, and beer sampling. There will be food for purchase, as well. The party begins at 6 p.m. and tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door.
Macon Music was released in 2014 to commemorate the Bragg Jam, while Macon Movies was released in 2015 to commemorate the Macon Film Festival. The Festie Besties Bottle Release Party is scheduled between the two festivals.
“Both of these festivals really highlight Macon’s revitalization,” said Macon Beer Company founder Jeremy Knowles. “There’s something to celebrate with the growing film and movie industry here. And Bragg Jam really celebrates our musical history here in Macon through live performance.”
Two Macon Beer Company brews, Macon Progress and Macon Love, are already available in bottles at various Middle Georgia Kroger stores. Macon Beer Company will follow the release of their newest bottled beers with the August release of a new brew, Macon Dreams, a peach ale, in honor of Otis Redding, who grew up in Macon.
The Festie Besties Bottle Release Party begins at 6 pm on July 27th. Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door, and may be purchased online at maconbeercompany.com or by calling 478-216-7117.
