Tennessee Brew Works Releases City Winery Beer Collaboration
2018 Belgian Strong Ale Aged in City Winery Pinot Noir Barrels

NASHVILLE, TENN. – (July 12, 2018) – Tennessee Brew Works, the Nashville, Tennessee based brewer of the Southern Wit®, 1927® IPA, State Park Blonde, Extra Easy®, Basil Ryeman® and Walk the Lime® announces the release of the 2018 Limited Edition Belgian Strong Ale aged in City Winery 2015 Vintage Pinot Noir barrels. The newest release, 22oz wax-dipped bottles, will be available at 2 p.m. on Friday, July 13, at the Tennessee Brew Works’ Taproom at 809 Ewing Ave, Nashville. Please limit 2 per customer.

Known for the culinary-minded craft beer creations, often sourcing from brewer and chef collaborations, Tennessee Brew Works has developed a reputation in beer, food and wine circles. The brewery is located in downtown Nashville, just a few doors down from City Winery’s onsite winery, restaurant and venue. Additionally, the Tennessee Brew Works taproom offers two of City Winery’s Nashville-inspired wines made at the downtown urban winery on their tap wall at all times.

The Belgian Strong Ale, aged in City Winery Pinot Noir Barrels has ABV: 8%, IBU: 30, and is a malt-forward Belgian Strong Ale with aromas and flavors of fig, plum, apricot and tart cherry, followed by a subtle dry oak finish. As the beer matures, beer and wine lovers will experience an evolution of wonderful stone fruit and red berry flavors.

“As the only working winery in downtown, Nashville, City Winery has the unique opportunity to collaborate with our friendly neighbors, like Tennessee Brew Works, through the art of winemaking. For a second year in a row, we’re proud to have partnered with our Pie Town friends for a delicious beer using our 2015 Music City Pinot Noir barrels. This specific wine was awarded 92 points & Gold Medal “Exceptional” Rating by Tastings.com and is incredibly aromatic with a strong violet and floral aroma. The subtle tannin structure offers delicious texture and a smooth finish with bursts of strawberry and blackberry. Once again, we’re proud to work with the talented brewmasters at Tennessee Brew Work,” said City Winery Nashville Local Winemaker Bill Anton

This beer will be available at the Tennessee Brew Works taproom, City Winery Nashville and limited outside retail locations.

“Get ready, because we are going to one of the coolest places there is, we’re going to Nashville, otherwise known as “Music City”! Nashville is known for its country music scene, and this is also where Elvis recording some of his most popular hits. However, you don’t have to be a lover of country as the alternative music scene also continues to evolve. Walking down the streets you hear never-ending great tunes spilling out from every bar you pass. This is where you’ll find the best live music entertainment in the US, if not the world! But it is not only the music scene this city has going for it, constant creative growth continues to happen and evolve the art, culture, food and fashion scene. Nashville is a place of creativity and artistic expression, and one of the hottest places to visit this year!”

Overlooked Wedding Must-Haves | Private Events with City Winery Nashville

citywineryOpenHouse-25

City Winery Nashville’s talented Private Events team is well experienced in hosting weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners & more. Below, Event Manager Ryan Walters provides her advice for 3 easily overlooked wedding details every couple should always remember. Enjoy!

On such a special day, every couple’s focus is spread thin across a long list of event details: guest experience, food, drinks, decor, attire, music & so much more. It’s easy for the finishing touches to be overlooked with the bustle around such an exciting milestone! Time and time again, we see the same forgotten necessities that truly make weddings, receptions or rehearsal dinners much easier on our clients.

#1. Hire a Wedding Planner!

I always recommend booking a wedding planner with 1 month prior to your date at minimum. Depending on how extensive the planning and design needs to be, you may need partial or full-service planning. In the beginning, it’s easy to think you can do it all on your own. You have plenty of time, a well-appointed Pinterest board of ideas, and plenty of friends & family offering to help. Couples often under-estimate the amount of day-time meetings, e-mails, phone calls and decision-making this process really requires!

Not only will you be selecting colors, lighting and draping, but you’ll be juggling a full-time job, friends, significant other, family, gym time for that wedding shred! Don’t forget – Getting married can also include the joint tax filings, insurance, house, credit cards and bank account! Are you stressed yet?!

Just like Mary Poppins, a wedding planner can save the day! Planners guide the decision-making process for you, tie up loose ends, and most importantly, manage emotions. A wedding is a monumental life moment and a happy celebration, and with millions of tiny details during this emotional time, a great wedding planner can mirror the positive support some find in a therapist! They’ll listen to your opinions and supply guided leadership with emotional stability, creating evergreen memories that will sparkle with love and joy. Less stress for you!

#2. Food is Fuel!

Food is obviously a critical part of our existence. We require nourishment for our bodies to not only physically function properly, but also to maintain a positive mental well-being. With such a busy day, we always urge clients… don’t stop eating!

Don’t stop eating early in the day. Don’t stop eating before your dress fitting. Don’t stop eating in the days leading up to your wedding. And definitely don’t stop eating during the celebration! The person you’ve chosen to spend the rest of your life with loves you for you. The friends and family attending your wedding love you for you. Life is too short. Don’t be “hangry!” Drink some wine, indulge in the filet, and celebrate!

#3. Take a 15-Minute Break

Speaking from experience, this is the second most important event to happen on your special day, right after the “I Do’s.” Post-ceremony, couples are whisked away for photographs, followed by a rapid succession of hello’s, congratulations, cocktails and dancing. Before you know it, the clock strikes twelve! You’ll find yourself wondering where your new spouse has been all day.

Instead, plan a 15-minute break after the necessary photographs have been taken, and tuck yourselves away. Have your beverage of choice, drink water, enjoy appetizers and even dinner (time-permitting) with the one you love in private before the party continues!

CityWineryStyled_076

CityWineryStyled_131

This moment of reflection may be one of your favorite memories from the entire celebration. It allows for the couple to decompress and re-emerge to guests recharged and ready for dancing! Combine this 15-minute break with the help of your wedding planner and a full belly? You’ll be a stress-free, happy couple on your exciting day!
