Celebrate the harvest season at Fest-of-Ale at the Atlanta Botanical Garden with live music and a selection of seasonal beers. All this while taking in the Moore in America and the Scarecrows in the Garden exhibits. Fest-of-Ale takes place every Thursday in October from 5-10 p.m.

See below for photos.

For something a little outside the bar scene norm enjoy your beer outdoors in the garden while listening to live music performed by Banjolicious. Then grab another beer and head deep into the gardens for a nighttime viewing of the scarecrows. Don't forget to bring a flashlight so you can enjoy the scarecrows created by individuals, designers and local organizations throughout Atlanta.

There's even something for the beer connoisseur. Hop City is sponsoring a weekly "Beer School" offering insight on beer varieties, ingredients and home brewing.

    Usually it starts out being more of a family event, but as the evening progresses it becomes a little more adult. It's pretty relaxed overall.
