5 Seasons Brewing Cask Ale

Event Start: 01/20/2018 

Event End: 01/20/2018 From London’s Independent Real Ale Guide… “Real ale or cask-conditioned beer is a natural, living product. The beer is not filtered, pasteurised or artificially carbonated. It’s placed into casks (called firkins), often with extra hops for aroma, and delivered in unfinished form to pubs. Here the beer enjoys a secondary fermentation in cask that creates a full, mature  flavour. In UK pubs, when the yeast has settled, the beer is drawn by the familiar hand-pump attached to a suction pump known as a beer engine. Some pubs without cellars still serve beer straight from the cask using a simple gravity tap.”  The Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting utilizes simple gravity taps to serve its real ales.
This is fresh ale the way it was meant to be served.  Attendees at the Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting (ACAT) will be amazed at the complexity and smooth, delicious character of these special real ales.  The beer lineup at ACAT will include cask versions of classic styles, some dry-hopped versions (with fresh hops added to the cask), and many specialty beers with exceptional ingredients!

Days of the Dead

Event Start: 02/02/2018 

Event End: 02/04/2018 

By the fans, for the fans, convention which had its inaugural show July 1st – 3rd, 2011, at the Wyndham Indianapolis West, located in Indianapolis, IN. The brainchild of Adolfo “Mr. Chainsaw: Dorta (From Dusk till Con), Ricardo “Del Muerto” Lara (From Dusk Till Con, 8 Bit Monsters), and Bill Philputt (Re-Evolution Management), Days of the Dead’s primary goal is to bring back the concept of the genre convention being a welcoming communal gathering of like minded friends and fans and not just another “pay-and-go” autograph show that has become an all too common (and impersonal) experience in the convention scene. Chock full of special events tailored just for the fans, an active after hours scene of horror themed parties, and a massive guest list of the hottest celebrity guests, artists, and up and coming independent film makers, Days of the Dead has already began rewriting the script and setting the bar for what a true horror convention weekend should look like.

Tickets: $30-$75

Cardboard Con

Event Start: 03/03/2018 

Event End: 03/03/2018 

Cardboard*Con is the world’s most affordable science fiction / fantasy convention, and the first dedicated to the art of cardboard costuming. Accidentally founded in 2010 by Captain Drew of the original cardboard troopers, Cardboard*Con has gone on to attract tens of devoted attendees and such guests as Cardboard Boxxa Fett(ucinni). Held annually in downtown Atlanta, Cardboard*Con is a family-friendly “traveling” convention which spans several convention hotels over the course of 5 hours, providing a significant positive economic and spiritual impact on the city as a whole. Cardboard*Con is more efficient than other science fiction conventions held in Atlanta, as it eschews the outdated and inefficient “volunteer system” in favor of the “you’re in charge of yourself” system.
