Almost 2 years ago today, I ran my first brewery tour the day after Thanksgiving on my father's birthday, November 28th, 2014. At that time I had no idea that that was the beginning of an adventure that would change my life in ways I couldn't have imagined.
As I'm writing this I'm excited at about the possibility of using the position Knox Brew Tours has put me in to be able to do something as fun and as crazy and as memorable as visiting every single brewery in the state that I love so much, Tennessee.
Over the next several weeks I will be reaching out to all of the breweries across the state in hopes that they would lend me an hour of their time to share with me their story, their culture, their passion, and hopefully a beer or two along the way.
The goal for this endeavor is simple: bring attention to the wonderful craft beer that Tennessee has to offer and to connect us beer lovers and beer businesses together. I hope to highlight the excitement and the bond of craft beer with friends and strangers alike.
If everything goes as planned, this trip will conclude as the cover article of the spring issue for The TN Craft Beer Magazine as well as website and social media outlet for individuals visiting the state of Tennessee. We have several other ideas to bring attention to this trip but I promise I will reveal those as they become a reality.
So for the first time ever I present to you The TN Beer Run, 1,400 miles, 76 breweries, 21 days, and 1 bus. (www.thetnbeerrun.com)
First things first, I've got to get the breweries on board.
Here goes nothing . . . Cheers!
Zack, The Brew Bus Guy
