Max Lager’s traveled to Athens, Georgia over the weekend to participate in the Classic City Brew Fest. This event draws brewers and beer enthusiasts from various states to sample over 250 beers, listen to live music, and vote for their favorite brews.

Our Brewmaster JR entered his Great American Beer Festival award-winning Imperial Mocha Oatmeal Stout into the competition. The complex notes and addition of dark roast coffee and Ghana cocao nibs were a hit among attendees.

The IMOS was awarded 3rd place in the People’s Choice Competition. Congratulations to Wrecking Bar for winning 1st place for their Smoked Porter aged with Tahitian Vanilla Beans and to the Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company who came in 2nd place for their Bonnie Blue Bomb- Southern Pecan with Blueberries, Coconut, Lemon, and Cinnamon! We had a blast! See you next year, Athens!
