Want to write about TN beer?

For those of you who enjoy reading about beer happenings in Tennessee in the Southern Brew News, the current columnist is leaving and is looking for a replacement. He writes:

"...if you know of anyone who might be interested in doing this column going forward, have them contact Lisa Hanson at
It's more of a love-of-the-game type gig which doesn't pay very well, but you learn a lot about what's going on beer-wise
in the state. It's pretty fun as well."

Might be a good way to get the early scoop on new beers and events, and make a little money as well!
