    So what you are referring to is for a beer license. This event operates under the beer license of the facility it is held at. BUT. Those pouring will have to have a server permit (TIPS card) The city issues one day permits. I am working on streamlining this process so folks won’t have to go to...

    Lots of great questions and I will try to answer all. As for a beer permit. I am co-hosting with the venue (a minor league stadium) who has a beer license. We operate under that. We are not selling beer and the great state of TN has some good homebrewing laws. Like "c) The use of homemade beer...

    Good question. If you work in a bar or restaurant, you have one. We call it TIPS in TN. If not the single day permits are free, just need to go get one. The hang up is that you can only get it once. I will be looking to get a pool of permitted servers willing to help out at the event should they...

    Applications to serve/compete will be accepted starting February 1, 2019. You will want to get these in early as there are only 75 spots available. Did I mention $8,000 cash goes to 1st place?

    Hoppy Session Saison, like a Sierra Nevada Session IPA but with Belgian Funk

    Hoppy Session Saison, like a Sierra Nevada Session IPA but with Belgian Funk

    Yea sorry about being unclear. You can drop those in at flame-out and let them sit for 10 mins or so while working on something else. I usually drop the temp to 140 then put them in and whirl pooled for 20 mins or so. Both works fine with slight variation in flavor. If you are using a spider...
