All – thank you! Thank you for being a part of this event, thank you for being such a big part of our AWESOME beer community and thank you for supporting New Hope Blount County Children’s Advocacy Center!!!

It’s hard to believe that Saturday marked the 8th year of the Tennessee Winter Beer Fest. It certainly seems like just yesterday that we began down this path. Unlike last year, this year’s event was much more smooth. We’ll continue to STAKE the tent going forward!

A big shout out to all our incredible brewers, talented bands, the team at Miss Lily’s Cafe – the food was excellent!, those that donated to the silent auction, our incredible MC – Zack Roskop, Ross Shapton who handles all our audio needs, the staff of New Hope that joined us and our volunteers – couldn’t do this without you. A big thank you to our sponsors, Grayson Subaru, The Casual Pint Bearden, The Talley Ho Inn, Tri County Portables, The Brewing and Distilling Center, Knox Brew Tours and The Townsend Abbey. We also greatly appreciate the additional support that The Townsend Gateway and the Highland Manor Inn provide – thank you!

To those that came out and, supported us, supported New Hope and SOLD THIS THING OUT AGAIN! We cannot thank you enough! Many, many people make this event possible and you are key to that success.

We’d also like to recognize Red Silo Brewing who won the coveted Best of Beers (BoBy) award – well deserved!

As the dust settles, we’ll announce our big silly check donation to New Hope and we hope you can join us. Until then, thanks again and cheers!
