More than 3,000 people came cruisin’ for some boozin’ at the 13th annual Music City Brewer’s Festival this Saturday.

The festival featured breweries from across the nation, including a few of our local favorites like Yazoo and Tennessee Brew Works. Amateurs and connoisseurs alike strapped on their pretzel necklaces and tasted brews  from more than 60 different brewing companies. Most tapped the light and fruity IPAs, a perfect antidote for a hot summer day in Nashville.

Beer wasn’t the only thing hoppin’ this weekend. Live music from the San Rafael Band, Get Right Band, DeRobert & the Half Truths, and the Dirk Quinn Band kept the crowd entertained as they worked their way from tent to tent.

All in all, the best part of one of Tennessee’s favorite festivals wasn’t the booze, the grub, or the rock ‘n’ roll; it was the generous heart at the core of the event. A portion of the proceeds were donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.

Second Harvest works to feed our hungry neighbors and to solve hunger issues in our community. Today, it is one of the largest and most comprehensive food banks and food distribution centers nationwide.

Breweries from across the U.S. came together, not only to share their amazing craft beer, but to partner with you in supporting the Nashville community.
