The 3rd annual Winter Beer Carnival has become so popular that it’s moving to a bigger venue – Atlantic Station. This year’s event is set for this Saturday, Feb. 11, from 3 to 7 p.m. Atlanta INtown is giving away two pairs of tickets this morning on Twitter, so follow us at @ATLINtownPaper and watch for our tweet.

Visitors will be able to sample more than 100 beers, food, games, activities and music from local djs. The event has sold out the past two years drawing thousands of carnival-goers. At Atlantic Station, the event will held a giant tent on 20th Street at Fowler.

Tickets are on sale now at or by calling (877) 725-8849. General admission tickets are $40 in advance and $50 day of the event. VIP tickets are $60 and grant patrons exclusive access to the best craft brews available, private bathrooms and early entry to the event beginning at 2 p.m.  If you’re not a drinker, there’s a “designated driver” ticket for $20 in advance or $30 at the door, which offers unlimited games.

Organizers are encouraging visitors to take MARTA to the Arts Center Station, then ride the shuttle to Atlantic Station. There will be parking in the parking deck as well. For more information about the Winter Beer Carnival, visit
