The Suwanee Craft Beer Fest is back to kick off summertime celebrations! Gwinnett County’s largest St. Patrick’s Day weekend party will take over Suwanee on Saturday, March 19, 2022 at Town Center Park.
Exclusively for attendees 21 and older, the Suwanee Craft Beer Festival showcases a selection of over 350 craft beers from around the country. The fest was previously named one of the 10 Best Beer Festivals in the U.S. by USA Today and the 2022 festivities are sure to be better than ever!
Event Coordinator Tiffany Belflower said, “In 2021, we expanded our Georgia beer section by bringing more local breweries than in past events. Our goal is to top those numbers again this year. We not only bring a large number of local breweries to the event but the owners and brewers as well. It provides attendees a chance to actually meet and chat with the people behind some of the best brews in Georgia.”
Buy your ticket now and save! General admission tickets start at $55, but festival planners have a$5 price increase scheduled for the end of January. Each ticket gives access to over 350 craft beer selections, live music from Journey tribute band DEPARTURE, games, food trucks, local artists and vendors. The Georgia Beer Garden also returns in 2022, featuring local favorite and homegrown Peach State breweries.

Event organizers are dedicated to giving back to the community, and as tradition holds, will donate a portion of the proceeds to local charities. This year’s benefiting charity is Cooper’s Crew, a local nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness to cure childhood cancer and provide scholarships to students overcoming adversities.
