Event Details

  • Where: Monday Night Garage, Atlanta, GA
  • When: April 27, 2019 from 6:30 – 9:30 pm
  • Why: To help show the importance of clean water!

Clean water is one of our planet’s most valuable resources.  It is critical to everything that we do.  The food we eat, the electricity that powers our homes, and the cities and towns in which we live are all highly dependent upon having reliable sources of clean water. Even the beer that we drink is 90% water. Sadly, more than 780 million people in this world do not have access to clean water. To help show the importance of clean water and the fact that with No Water there would be No Beer, the Georgia Section of the American Water Works Association (GAWWA) is hosting the fifth annual No Water, No Beer Festival®.

This year we have an exciting new venue in town at the Monday Night Brewery Garage location at the Lee+White complex on the Westside Beltline Trail.  This huge new venue will support the continued growth of this great event. This years event will be held on April 27, 2019 from 6:30 – 9:30 pm as a kick-off to Drinking Water Week. The event will include delicious food, great music, and some of the best beer in the Southeast. The proceeds from this event will help Water for People in their quest to provide clean water to people in developing countries, it will help Rivers Alive in efforts to keep our water supply clean right here in Georgia, and it will help the AWWA Water Equation provide scholarships for training operators in protecting our health.  Over the past 4 years we have had great events with over 350 people in attendance for each event and success in raising $25,000 for these great causes.
