Hey Nashville, are you getting excited? You should be! Nashville Craft Beer Week 2013 kicks off next Monday, March 18. Festivities, tastings, dinners and all kinds of awesome events run through Sunday the 24th. Matt Leff’s Rhizome Productions has planned an amazing week of beer-themed fun.
Make sure to check the schedule on the Craft Beer Week site, it looks like most of the bars and local restaurants have something going on during the week and some are hosting several events. Honestly, there’s just too much to do! There’s no way to hit everything, so pick a couple of things to do each night. There are so many beer dinners, it’s hard to pick the best! You can’t go wrong with Rhizome’s dinners at Silly Goose (with North Coast) on Monday and City House on Tuesday. Of course the crowning event of Nashville’s Craft Beer Week is the 3rd Annual East Nashville Beer Fest. It sold out in 12 minutes, but I’m sure you can find tickets if you look around. (FYI, if you have tickets to sell be cool and sell them for what you paid for them. It’s bad beer karma to scalp beer fest tickets.)
If you haven’t yet, pick up a copy of the recent Nashville Scene for the full schedule. The Scene did a great job of listing all the events, they only missed one. It’s not their fault, how could they possible know about the double-secret Beer Makes Three-Tennessee Brew Works private tasting on Thursday night? Kendall and I and a few lucky blog followers are in for a treat! (We’ll be sure to tell you all about it.)
