Memphis Brewfest 2013?

  1. My wife and I had a great time at Brewfest in Memphis last year. Is there no plan for it this year? I can't find anything about it online.

    I've never been to a good beer festival in Memphis. Nashville has been the go to in the area here of late, especially with the ones from Rhizome Productions. They are having one in Tupelo in March.

    Well have you been to Brewfest or Zoo Brew? Both of those are a lot of fun and have plenty of beers to try. The River City Brewers Festival was a big disappointment, though. I only went to the first year of that and did not care to return.

    I've been to Brewfest before. The real problem is/was Southwestern Distributors and now that responsibilty has been passed to Budweiser of Memphis. I think for the first year or two, the state of craft beer in Memphis will suffer even more. But once they get a feel for the area and what's available in Tennessee, they will surpass where the market was before. It's just going to take time.
