2021 TWBF Canceled, How to Help New Hope!

Hello Tennessee Winter Beer Fans,

We were very much looking forward to celebrating our 10th anniversary with you! However, for all the obvious reasons, we will not be hosting the 2021 Tennessee Winter Beer Fest in February. The board of the TWBF looked at many options and came to the conclusion that for the safety of our patrons, brewers and all involved, it is best to cancel this year’s event. We want our 10 year celebration to be an absolute blast of a blow-out and so we will look to February of 2022. We look forward to raising a glass with you then!

How to Help!

We’re not done for 2021. New Hope Blount County Children’s Advocacy Center depends on our donation each year. While they know our usual donation won’t be possible in 2021, we still have some tricks up our sleeve!

  1. Beer for Hope. While this was meant to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and help encourage folks to visit our brewer friends, in the back of our minds, we knew this could be a big part of our donation without an event. There is still Beer for Hope that needs you to drink it!!! Please help us kick these kegs. You can find the brewer list here. Please go and ask for Beer for Hope. At the time of this post, we know there is beer at Elkmont Exchange, Tri-Hop, Pretentious, Xul, Abridged and The Casual Pint Bearden amongst others.
  2. Silent Auction. The silent auction lives on! Thanks to a really cool auction site that New Hope has experience with, our silent auction will go online in February. We’d love to have you participate and we’ll share information as we get closer but in the meantime, if you’d like to contribute an item to the silent auction, that’d be great! You can let us know by hitting the email link on the right side of this page.
  3. Donate. As we’ve discussed this with our sponsors, most have already told us that they will still contribute this year. How awesome is that?! You can contribute too! If you would like to be a part of our donation to New Hope this year, you can do so through our ticketing site here or at the link above.

We’re hopeful that with these three options, we can still make a nice donation to New Hope this year. Child abuse has not stopped. If anything, due to the uncertainty and stress in our world right now, it’s gotten worse. These kids needs us. They not only need us to be aware and help identify abuse but also to ensure that when they are found, they have place to go.

Thank you for your continued support of the Tennessee Winter Beer Fest and New Hope! We’re looking forward to the brighter days that lie ahead and an awesome 10 year celebration with you in 2022!
