Publik Draft House Issues Call for Great Southern Craft Beer Competition Entries

ATLANTA — Following the successful passing of the local ordinance in accordance with the Georgia General Assembly House Bill 99, Publik Draft House (P.D.H) announces its official call for entries for the Great Southern Craft Beer Competition ( The ordinance authorized and set parameters for the city’s amateur brewing events, such as this contest, which invites southeastern homebrewers to submit their original beers beginning April 1. One winner will take home the suite of grand prizes: $1,000, a feature in Atlanta Magazine and beer distribution at P.D.H. for one year.

“This official homebrew competition is a reality because of strong support from the Atlanta City Council and our district’s representative, Kwanza Hall,” says P.D.H. co-owner Eddie Johnson. “We, in turn, can now support local and talented amateur homebrewers and provide them the opportunity to place their beers on the map with the chance to flow through our taps.”

P.D.H. cites requests from Atlanta’s craft beer community as the primary motive for creating the competition. “We listened to our customers and colleagues who were frustrated that events like these were prohibited,” continues Johnson. “We took action, and this is just a testament to the success that comes from cooperation within the legislative process.”

How to Enter the Competition

The Great Southern Craft Beer Competition entry period begins April 1 and runs through June 1, 2014. Contestants must pay a $10 fee per beer entry and may submit up to three entries. Each entry includes six bottles of the specialty home brew and must be delivered to P.D.H. at 654 Peachtree Street, Atlanta, GA 30308 by June 1. Entries are only eligible when accompanied by the entry form and competition labels found on the website
