Nashville Summer Beer Events That Don't Suck

If you haven't noticed, craft beer has grown in popularity and with that growth comes more beer-related events than any one human could actually survive. So I've narrowed it down to the key Nashville beer events that are worth your time, money, and hangover.


Brew At The Zoo

Nashville Zoo

May 31st, 6:30-10:30pm

Have you ever watched flamingos buzzed? You'll like it.

Tickets $65


ShenaniGoats Yoga

East Nashville Beer Works

June 2nd, 10-11am

Drunken goat yoga. Pretty sure the goats stay sober but who knows what the day might bring.

Tickets $32


Beer Dinner


June 18th, 7pm

Makeready (delightful restaurant in the Noelle hotel) has invited Bearded Iris and Modern Times over to pair some very tasty beer with some very tasty food. You're on the guest list, too! Except you have to pay for it.

Tickets $65


Preds Craft Beer Festival

Bridgestone Arena

June 22nd, 10-11am

Only summer beer festival in Nashville where you won't sweat your tits off. That's a win for me.

Tickets $69 until June 14th


Beer & Hymns

The Sutler w/ Black Abbey

June 20th, 7-10pm

Personally, this is one of my favorites. Last time I went, they had Gaston, a flautist, and several men in kilts participating.

Tickets $12


Bikes & Beers


August 3rd, 9am

For those of you who enjoy pairing strenuous physical activity with your beer drinking, you can go on a 15 or 30-mile bike ride before enjoying your brewskies. I'll meet you at the finish line. In the taproom. Three beers deep.

Tickets $25-50


Middle Tennessee Highland Games and Celtic Festival

Percy Warner Park

September 7&8th, 9am-5pm

Ok so it's not technically a beer event but can you think of a better context for drinking beer? Didn't think so.

Tickets $30
