Get into the spirit(s) at Lanier Islands’ first-ever Beer & Wine Fest

By Pamela A. Keene
More than 100 beers and 25 wines to sample – it’s time to head out to Lanier Islands for the first-ever Beer & Wine fest, taking place on Saturday, October 14, at LanierWorld.
“Our Legacy Wine Cruises have been so popular that we decided to bring the concept ashore and supersize it,” said Missy Burgess, director of public relations and sponsorships at the resort. “We’ll showcase beers and wines from local breweries, regional wineries and national/international beverage producers in this special event for our 21 and older fans of the islands. And best of all, we’ll be showing two great SEC football games on our high-definition five-story-tall screen and entertainment, so it’s going to be a great event.” 
The event takes place from 1-5 p.m. and is limited to 2,000 guests. The band Whispering Gypsies plays from noon until 4 p.m. SEC games featuring the University of Georgia Bulldogs vs. University of Missouri and Auburn University Tigers vs. the LSU Tigers will be broadcast as well.
LanierWorld restaurants will also be open. 
The Islands will broadcast SEC games on Saturdays and Falcons games on Sunday through the end of the season. Check local listings for times and games.
“We’re so excited about the Beer & Wine Fest,” Burgess said. “It will be like a super-sized tailgate with the bonus of being right on the lake. We hope everyone will come out and join us.”
