About the Craft Beer Festival

Last year, MRI brought over 100 craft beers & ciders and 8 local breweries to downtown Decatur. This year, MRI is teaming up with the Decatur Area Arts Council to make the Decatur Craft Beer Festival bigger & better than ever!

Join us on Saturday, September 30 for an afternoon of over 120 craft beers and ciders, at least 12 local breweries, a variety of delicious food trucks, live music and more! This year, we’ve expanded our VIP event to the night before. If you’re serious about your craft beer, join us inside the Decatur Area Arts council on Friday, September 29 for an evening of rare beers and ciders not available at Saturday’s event, delicious appetizers designed for pairing and exclusive auction items. VIP tickets also include entrance to Saturday’s Festival along with some extra VIP swag.

All proceeds stay in the Decatur community by benefiting two local organizations, MRI (Macon Resources, Inc.) and the Decatur Area Arts Council.
