Upcoming Events

The fall mixer for the Brew Movement against MS will be at High Cotton on Sunday, November 8 at High Cotton. This is kind of a pre-fundraiser for the fundraiser (It costs money to raise funds; who knew?) and it’s for a great cause, so make sure you stop by. The event page is here. Also, don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Brew Movement on Friday, February 26th at the Pink Palace, 7P-10P.

Taste the Flavors, a craft beer/food pairing event, is a benefit for the Sickle Cell Foundation of Tennessee and will be held on November 14 at Just for Lunch from 6P-9P. Details are here.

Upcoming Festivals

Here is the Art On Tap, Cooper-Young Beerfest​, and Taste the Flavors Brew Festival​ sign-up form. You must be a member in good standing to participate.

Also, please note that Taste the Flavors would prefer to have beers that are accessible to non-craft drinkers – so lay off the IPAs, RIS’s, or whatever smoked abominations you were thinking of bringing.

May Meeting

The meeting this Thursday will be at Hammer & Ale​, 7:00 PM. The presentation will be on hop varieties – Richard​ and I have dry hopped some tasty Miller Lite with several different English, American, and Noble varieties. Come out and learn how to differentiate between them!
