09 Jan BUBBLES & BREWS CRAFT BEVERAGE MONTH BEGINS MARCH 1, 2020
Cobb County, Ga. – (January 9, 2020) – Cobb Travel & Tourism is tapping into the local craft beverage scene with Bubbles & Brews, a new event launching in March of 2020. Bubbles & Brews is a month-long celebration of the creative craft beverage making skills of Cobb County, Georgia’s brewers and distillers. Throughout the month, visitors can vote for their favorite beverages, win prizes, and attend special classes and events at participating breweries.
Bubbles & Brews provides a great opportunity to support the local craft beverage community by exploring the unique brews of all ten spirit-makers in Cobb. There are no passes to buy, coupons to carry, or cards to punch, just one-of-a-kind, only-made-here-in-Cobb experiences to enjoy.
“Cobb is home to more than 10 breweries with even more openings on tap soon, and all have their own special stories and scenery,” said Holly Quinlan, president & CEO of Cobb Travel & Tourism. “From meeting the head brewer and discovering the local landmark behind a beer’s name, to taking part in taproom events, every glass holds an opportunity to learn more about the area’s history and character.”
Cobb Travel & Tourism will be hosting a contest during Bubbles & Brews month where craft beverage makers will submit a unique brew or two for taste testing. Visiting connoisseurs can travel to each location to try the different submissions and cast votes for their favorites online. A selfie scavenger hunt will also guide suds-lovers through all ten of the operating breweries and distilleries in Cobb. Those that complete the challenge can bring photo proof to the Cobb Travel & Tourism office to get some exclusive Bubbles & Brews swag.
