Shelton Brothers The Festival Announces Ridiculous Brewery Lineup + Rumored Pour List

Shelton Brothers The Festival Announces Ridiculous Brewery Lineup + Rumored Pour List
Avg. Reading Time: 10 min

Over the past 18 years, Shelton Brothers has grown to become one of the country’s most prestigious importers of international beer as one of the more recognizable distributors in the U.S. Gaining recognition for carrying elite level brands like Cantillon, Blaugies, Fantôme and more, the MA-based wholesalers has also laid claim to one of the most elite level beer festivals in the country. The Festival, which rotates cities each year showcases not only the Shelton Brothers catalogue but also some of the country’s best and brightest up-and-coming breweries.

This year’s two day event takes place August 18-19 in Atlanta, GA with sessions taking place both Friday and Saturday.VIP sessions are currently sold out but single day general admission and two day passes are still available. Additionally Shelton Brothers announced this year’s brewery lineup and it might just be the most ridiculous collection of breweries we’ve ever seen in one place.

    Hi Tristan,

    Would you mind removing the link to the Google Sheet you have in your article? I meant for that to be for the /r/atlbeer community to have as kind of a working document to prepare for The Festival.

    I have a locked version here:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Kmynq_y6BQT23UgTtMXEmtUk5Nkllo3NMa3ssYtxQOA/edit#gid=0

    that you are welcome to use. Same information, just non-editable so vandals don’t mess with our hard work.

    I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Jeffrey

    • Fixed! Thanks Jeffery! We’d love to keep in touch to cover this event in the future please do shoot me an email if you dont mind!
