craft beer week
Do you like beer? Yes? Good. We do, too, so why not celebrate it by drinking a nice variety during the launch of the inaugural Chattanooga Craft Beer Fest on April 20 at the First Tennessee Pavilion.
The event will last from noon until 5 p.m. and in addition to the craft suds, local restaurants and food trucks will make food available for the maximum attendance, limited to 2,000 people.
The festival is a part of Chattanooga Craft Beer Week from April 15 to 21 and will include events such as a different cask beer each day at Taco Mac, a full restaurant tap takeover at Brewhaus (straight to ale beers with 12 taps, guys!), a Women in Craft Beer event hosted by the Pink Boots Society at 212 Market Restaurant with female-owned and brewed Jackalope Brewing on site to discuss their experience, and lastly the opening of the Chattanooga Market the day after the fest.
Jackalope Brewing and Starr Hill Brewing will debut in Chattanooga during the week with a big push at CCBF. Other breweries that have signed on with the event are Bluegrass Brewing Company, New Belgium, Sierra Nevada, Chattanooga Brewing, Good People, Lazy Magnolia, Sweetwater, Calfkiller Brewing, Red Brick, Shmaltz, Blackstone, Green Man, Brooklyn, Lagunitas, Green Flash and Yazoo.
Tickets are $45 and include a six-ounce tasting glass, drinking water, educational seminars and samples of all beers. Designated driver passes are $20. No pets will be permitted and, of course, you must be 21.
