REC TEC Grills is very proud to present the 6th Annual Augusta Beerfest 2019!
This will be our fourth year involved with Augusta Beerfest and it just keeps getting bigger and better. The first year we attended Beerfest in 2016, it was held at the Bell Auditorium in downtown Augusta, Georgia. The event was such a success that they've since moved it to a bigger venue! Now, Beerfest is held at the largest indoor venue in Augusta, the James Brown Arena (JBA for short). Thousands of our closest friends and family will be joining us this year for hours of beer tasting, games, giveaways, and just plain fun!
Check out this 2018 recap to see what Augusta Beerfest all about!
What's on Tap?
This will be our third year sponsoring this amazing event.
We appreciate our friends at Beasley Media Group for allowing us to partner with them and bring the largest beer festival in the Southeast to Augusta! With breweries from all over the country and over 45 craft brews to taste, it is a beer lover's dream. Not a beer lover? Don’t fret! There will also be ciders, wine, and I heard through the grapevine that our Durty Gurl staff will be on hand passing out delicious samples of your favorite Durty Gurl cocktails! There will be something for everyone's taste.

Will There Be Food?
CSRA food vendors will also be on hand to help make sure that no one over indulges on an empty stomach.
There's going to be a LOT of beer available, so you have to pace yourself. I usually eat a big lunch at one of the many fine establishments in downtown Augusta before the event starts! That way, I can make it from start to finish. The JBA is right in the middle of our downtown area which makes it the perfect place to start and finish your day. Doors open at 2 p.m. for VIP guests and 3 p.m. for general admission, so you have plenty of time to eat and prepare for an awesome evening.
Grab your sample cup and get to tasting!
Support Your Favorite Breweries
One of my favorite breweries, Shiner Beer from Shiner, Texas, will be on hand for tastings and samples of their new lineup.
Creature Comforts out of Athens, Georgia, is another crowd favorite that will be attending Beerfest. Fun fact: If you saw the newest Avengers movie, you might have noticed Thor drinking Creature Comforts Athena beer! I'm also very excited that our local breweries, Savannah River Brewing Co. and Riverwatch Brewery, will be there handing out their tasty goodness as well. I've tried most of our local brews and I'm excited that more folks will be introduced to them.
Cheers to good beer, good friends, and good times! #RECTEClifestyle
What Grill Pairs Best With Drinking Beer?
One of my favorite grills to cook on while drinking a cold beer has got to be the RT-A850 WyldSide!
You just light it up and watch it go! The variable speed blower fan allows you to get started quicker than conventional charcoal or wood fire grills. With the ability to raise and lower your food over the fire, you really have full control over your cook. Your grilling area isn’t stuck in one position like all of the competition, either. I especially like the rotisserie setup that comes standard with the grill. You can actually run two rotisseries at the same time because there are two outlets on the backside of the pit. With a 304 stainless steel cooking chamber, you won’t have to repaint this bad boy in the future. The integrated warming box acts like an oven, allowing you to bake or keep food warm while you fulfill your need to create fire! The caster wheels make it super easy to position the pit anywhere you need it to be. Not to mention, the six year warranty is backed by the best customer service in the industry. This is a no brainer if you're in the market for a charcoal or wood burning grill. Paired with a cold one, this makes for some fun cookin'.
