A message from Tennessee Winter Beer Fest:
“We’re back! Be sure to save the date for the official 10th anniversary of the TN Winter Beer Fest – February 19th, 2022 in Townsend, TN! Tickets will go on sale in December and we’ll be back with details on brewers and all the fun that goes along with the event!
We will be diligent to follow the health recommendations according to local authorities, CDC and WHO at the time of the festival. We want to keep folks safe whilst we drink great beer, enjoy each other’s company, and raise funds for New Hope Blount County Children’s Advocacy Center!
We’re also bringing back Beer for Hope where our incredible Tennessee brewers brew a beer only found in their tap rooms that help raise funds for the cause – more to come!
We’re looking forward to being back with everyone this February. Prost!”
The History of Tennessee Winter Beer Fest
The Tennessee Winter Beer Fest (TNWBF) began as an idea in 2011 from Maryville resident Mike Adams. He simply wanted to put on a beer festival. Through conversations with several friends a board was formed and a charity identified to benefit from the event, New Hope Blount County Children’s Advocacy Center.
The TNWBF has grown since its beginning, officially becoming a 501(c)3 in 2014. Since its inception it has raised and donated over $150,000 to New Hope. The mission of TNWBF is to promote the regional craft beer culture within East Tennessee through intimate events and gatherings while supporting local charities.
The TNWBF board includes Nathan Robinette of The Casual Pint, Adam Palmer, Michael Talley of The Talley Ho Inn, Steve Fillmore of Miss Lily’s Café, Mike Adams of Charter Spectrum Business, Andy Atkinson of Best Version Media, Todd White of The Brewing and Distilling Center, Christinea Beane of Black Abbey Brewing, Tony Schmitt of The Casual Pint, Don Kline of Knox Beer Snobs, and Rob Shomaker of Knox Beer Snobs.
