I'm going to start posting what we plan to have on tap every weekend, so you can plan your weekend around beer ( who doesn't?)

Alabama here we come!

We've signed a distribution agreement with Supreme Beverage, who covers northern Alabama. We're pretty close to rolling out our beer into Birmingham and Huntsville, just waiting on approval of our brands by the state ABC board. We'll probably be launching it in April, right when the weather turns nice and people head to their favorite patio for a beer. I'm really excited about Birmingham - it's full of independent restaurants, and seems to have a really developed foodie culture. Plus, we've got good relationships with three restaurants already - Mafiaoza's is opening a Birminham restaurant and are really excited about bringing in our beer as they open; Jackson's Bistro has a Birmingham restaurant as well; and, although they don't sell a whole lot of beer, Jim-n-Nicks has six restaurants there and are really trying to support Southern breweries with their draft selections. Plus, the Free the Hops group has really stoked a lot of interest in craft beers, albeit higher alcohol ones. The interest is bound to spill over into anything new that they couldn't get before, including Yazoo!

Huntsville is suprising to me. It's becoming one of Supreme's biggest markets, and they attribute it to all of the military and NASA folks moving in, after a lot of base closings in Virginia and Maryland.

St. Patty's East Pub Crawl

We're sponsoring this year's St. Patty's Day pubcrawl in east Nashville, and it looks like it is going to be a great night, if the weather cooperates. Three Crow, Red Door East, Beyond the Edge, Alley Cat, and Batter'd and Fried are all a part of it. Most places will be running a Yazoo special all night (2 for 1, $3 pints, etc.) If you make it to all five places and get your card stamped, you can win an autographed guitar, Predators tickets, and more. See for all the info.

This pubcrawl and the one we sponsor for Halloween are some of the most fun nights in east Nashville. Come on out and celebrate!
