About Pints for Prostates at Macon Beer Fest in Georgia
Started in 2010, the Macon Beer Fest has grown into one of Georgia’s premier craft beer events. The event offers over 50 varieties of beer for its regular ticket holders and several additional special beers for its VIP guests. What makes the event unique, is that its purpose is to educate men about the risks of prostate cancer. You can say it’s a health fair disguised as a beer festival – it’s a party for a cause!

The Macon Beer Fest is put on by the Rotary Downtown Macon and Main Street Macon.

About Pints for Prostates
Pints for Prostates is the main beneficiary of the Macon Beer Fest. Pints for Prostates is a grassroots campaign that uses the universal language of beer to reach men and raises awareness among men about the importance of regular health screenings and early detection for prostate cancer.
