The East Atlanta Beer Festival takes place in Brownwood Park, just a couple streets south of the East Atlanta Village. The closest MARTA station is Inman Park on the blue/green rail line, but you have to take a bus from the station to get to East Atlanta (about a 10 minute ride) as it is not in walking distance.
If you are coming from the red or gold rail lines, transfer at Five Points to the eastbound platform and get on a train labeled “Indian Creek” or “Candler Park” to reach the Inman Park station. You can also park your car in the free daily lot at the Inman Park station and ride the bus (see map to get directions). From there, choose from these three bus routes:
- Bus 4
- Bus 32
- Bus 34
- Bus 74
You’ll want to check the schedules ahead of time online or use Google Maps to plan your trip. Be advised that buses park on both sides of the station, and there is a pedestrian bridge that you can use to get to the other side if necessary. Bus 4 departs from the Inman Park side of the tracks, while 34 and 107 are on the Reynoldstown side. It is free to ride the bus if you are transferring from the train.
- On the return trip, if you wait at a bus stop on Moreland Avenue north of the East Atlanta Village near the Citgo gas station, you’ll have access to all three bus routes, so you can get on the first bus that arrives.
- Nearby restaurants include the Graveyard Tavern, The Glenwood, Holy Taco, Grant Central Pizza East, Tomatillos and the Flatiron Restaurant.
- Make sure to have a roundtrip fare (2 trips) on your Breeze Card to take the bus back to the train station. Otherwise, you’ll need to pay the exact fare in cash, which is $2.50.
