Music City Brewers invite you to our 15 th annual Music City Brew Off, October 8

South East, it will be held at the Courtyard Marriott Conference Center in

reasonable and a link can be found at to make your
reservations, or you can call the hotel at 615-851-3000. Be sure to identify
yourselves with the MCB Brew Off.

Kicking off our festivities will be a buffet dinner pared with homebrewed beers,
and a presentation by Dave Miller, author of Dave Miller’s Homebrewing Guide
and AHA Style Series: Continental Pilsner.

We will feature our 2nd Club Crawl after dinner with regional clubs serving up
their finest brews. If your club would like to participate in this event,

Saturday morning our BJCP/AHA Sanctioned Competition will commence with
judge and steward orientation at 8:30 AM. There will be two judging sessions:

who has passed away, will be given to one of the clubs with a minimum of 10
category involvement. The winning club will receive an engraved plaque and
their name will be engraved on a permanent plaque held by the Music City

Our new event will be an in-house Pub Crawl at the hotel with several local and
regionally brewed beers, along with homebrews in the continuing Club Crawl.
