American Craft Beer Week is almost gone!

Hey Nashville, are you enjoying craft beer week? We hope so.

We didn’t post anything before the week kicked off because we spent all last week in Portland, OR (aka Beervana) and Spokane, WA. There is SO MUCH good beer there. I don’t think we had the same beer twice. Look for lots of new blog posts of our PACNW beer adventures soon.

This week was fun for us. Tuesday night June and the ladies of Nashville’s chapter of Girls’ Pint Out took over {pub}licity in Bellevue. We also stopped by to see our friends at Craft Brewed the past two nights. Thursday, they hosted a Fat Bottom tap takeover and tonight was a full TN tap takeover. It was beautiful to see 20 taps of beer from only Tennessee brewers. Let’s see if I can remember all the taps: Yazoo, Blackstone, Fat Bottom, Czann’s, Jackalope, Mayday, Turtle Anarchy, Saw Works, Calf Killer, Jubilee and Chattanooga. Yes, that’s 11. Eleven. If you didn’t catch that, I said 11. For those of you not from Tennessee, three years ago that list would had just been Yazoo & Blackstone.

It’s a good time to be a beer lover in Tennessee. We’ve come so far, but we’ve got a long way to go. In the next few months Little Harpeth, Tennessee Brew Works and Black Abbey will be opening, and that’s just in Nashville. I’m sure there are other breweries in the works in Memphis, Knoxville, Chattanooga and the Tri-Cities. We can’t wait!

Cheers!

(FYI… here’s the tap list tonight at Craft Brewed. Look at all those tasty TN beers. Stop by this weekend, they’ll be on tap until the kegs are blown.)
