Macon Beer Festival offers visitors more than a good drink

General admission tickets are $35.

MACON, Ga. — Central Georgia has plenty of events to fill up your weekend.

Macon’s Beer Fest happened Saturday from 3-7 p.m. on Third and Poplar Streets downtown.

It’s been around since 2010 and has grown into one of Georgia’s premier craft beer events, but it’s more than just a chance to grab a drink.

Organizers say it’s a health fair disguised as a beer festival. It’s meant to educate men on the risks of prostate cancer.

General admission tickets were $35.
