Craft Brewers Conference – Public Events – Nashville

Being married to a craft-beer lover, I’ve known that this year the Craft Brewers Conference was coming to Nashville for quite some time. Apparently this is a really big deal in the beer world. Even though the conference is a ticketed event, there are also going to be events going on around town that the public can attend. Here are a few:

CANdemonium – Canned beers, food trucks, and music from Nashville heavy hitters like Emily West, Shelly Fairchild, Lila McCann, and a special guest headliner. Tickets are $45 and include samples/full cans from 20+ breweries (click the link the see the full list). Marathon Music Works, Tuesday May 1st, 6-10pm.

Music City CANarchy + Oskar Blues Encore – This event at Music City Walk of Fame Park is FREE (my favorite word) open to the public, and damn near all day long! This party is to officially launch the new craft beer collective created from the partnership of Oskar Blues Brewery, Cigar City Brewing, Perrin Brewing Company, and Utah Brewers Collective. At 4pm there is a tapping of Oskar Blues’ limited release Check Yo’Self Golden Double IPA and Interstate SMaSH Express Simcoe IPA. And at 5pm the music kicks in with 5pm with Eagle Eye Williamson from Austin, TX, Interstate Stash Express from Lyons, CO, and headliner Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, featuring the 28 year-old son of Willie Nelson. Sounds like a fun event not to be missed! Full press release here.

Blackberry Farm & New Belgium Bière de Mai Release Party – These two breweries are throwing a shindig to celebrate their collaboration on a late Spring wild ale blended with foeder-aged sour beer. The party is open to the public, but requires ticket purchase. The $20 ticket include unlimited pours of Biere de Mai and a wide assortment of New Belgium and Blackberry Farm Brewery brews. There will be food trucks on site to purchase food. The party is May 2nd at Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery. Head here for tickets & more info!
