Health and Safety

The Tennessee Winter Beer Fest (TWBF) continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. We strongly encourage vaccinations for those who are able. We will also be expanding our tent size to allow for more space between patrons and providing hand sanitizer throughout the event. Any changes to health and safety protocols will be made on this page.


As all our net proceeds goes to New Hope Blount County Children’s Advocacy Center, the TWBF has always maintained a no refunds policy for this event. However, we respectfully request that for the health and safety of all patrons, you not attend the event under the following conditions:

  • if you are feeling ill, 
  • if within 14 days of the event, you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 which include but are not limited to fever, cough, shortness of breath, and loss of smell or taste, among others. Please see the CDC website for more information regarding symptoms.
  • if you have been exposed to someone within the last 14 days who has tested positive for COVID-19,
  • if you have been advised to quarantine by a medical professional or public health agency due to possible exposure to COVID-19, or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for your treatment. 

While we would suggest and encourage all funds go to New Hope versus a refund, please reach out to us (tnwinterbeerfest@gmail.com) if you would like to discuss a refund under these circumstances. Should it be determined to cancel the event entirely due to health and safety concerns, we will provide patrons the option to donate the ticket amount to New Hope or to request a refund.

We greatly appreciate your assistance in helping to keep everyone healthy and safe!
