Since 1967, the Georgia Conservancy has been protecting and exploring Georgia. By day, we explore Georgia’s most precious rivers, forests and mountains. By night, we gather in the glow of a campfire to celebrate our love of the outdoors. With that sentiment in mind, we have created Firelight, a fundraiser to help us grow our trips program and celebrate the best that a good campfire has to offer: great music, food, SweetWater beer and friends!

Firelight is an amazing evening of all-you-can-enjoy SweetWater beer, red and white wine, Coca-Cola products, sweet and savory deserts from Pie Shop and Jake's Ice Cream, snacks from Waffle House, cheese from Sweet Grass Dairy, a S'more bar curated by REI, Whynatte "cocktails", and live music from Sailing to Denver - all at the Reel Room in the SweetWater Brewing Company!

Every attendee will receive one ticket for a Waffle House waffle, one ticket for a scoop of Jake's Ice Cream, one food ticket for a Pie Shop pie slice, and one ticket for a casked SweetWater beer - either a S'more flavored Festive Ale or a maple syrup / waffle flavored Whiplash IPA (the tickets are food or beverage specific and can't be exchanged - we have to make sure everyone gets a waffle!)
