$5 craft beers at Mercedes Benz Stadium starting in September

The Benz will begin selling $5 craft beer on draft in September, according to Curbed Atlanta. The deal’s kick-off date (and the unveiling of the Atlanta brewery involved in the new deal) is slated for September 16; the Falcons home opener game. But, that’s not all. Prices on other food items have also been slashed. Falcons fans—or anyone attending an event at the Benz—can purchase the ATL Bud burger for $8 or a free-range fried chicken sandwich for $10. The real deal seems to be the “stadium exclusive craft beer” from the yet-named Atlanta brewery: $5 for a 12-ounce draft or $7 for 20 ounces. [CurbedATL]
