Nashville's Craft Beer News Weekly Roundup

Well folks, it's been a busy week and we have a few things to report.  Make sure to read to the bottom for a chance to win free tickets to The Tennessee Beer Festival!

Yazoo Brewing Company Wins Medal At GABF
Every year breweries from all over the country visit Denver, Colorado for The Great American Beer Festival and compete for a coveted medal - Yes, kind of like the olympics, but for beer.  Yazoo Brewing Company made Nashville proud by picking up a bronze metal for their Embrace The Funk series beer "Cherry Deux Rouges" in the Wood- And Barrel-Aged Sour Beer Category.  Yazoo has previously won medals for their "Hefeweizen" as well as their Imperial Smoked Porter, "Sue."

Mill Creek Brewing Launches Kickstarter Campaign
Another local brewery is in the works - This time in Nolensville, Tennessee!  Chris Going, a longtime home brewer, has taken to Kickstarter to raise funds to get his brewery off the ground.  The brewery will initially offer four, "no frills," beers: A wheat beer, farmhouse ale, german lager, and an IPA.  Visit their Kickstarter page for more details and to back their project.

The Picnic Tap Is Now Serving Beer At The Nashville Farmers Market
Add beer to your list of things to pick up at the farmers market thanks to the new opening of The Picnic Tap!  With fifteen taps of mostly local and regional craft beer, The Picnic Tap is now serving on-premise pints and growlers to go.

Alabama's Back Forty Begins Distributing to Nashville
Another Alabama brewery, Back Forty Beer Company has begun distributing their beer to Nashville!  They have been named one of the top eight places to visit in Alabama by Garden & Gun Magazine, and in 2010 took home a silver medal from the Great American Beer Festival for their Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale.
