Terminal Brewhouse can’t hold the 1,500 guests expected for the Chattanooga Craft Beer Festival, but as the sponsor of the event, it will be party central before and after.
The microbrewery at 6 E. 14th St. will welcome guests to a pre-party at 6:30 p.m. today and an after-party at 5 p.m. Saturday.
The festival, set for noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at First Tennessee Pavilion, will feature more than 100 brews from 38 regional breweries. Terminal Brewhouse and other vendors will provide foods.
New this year is a $75 admission ticket that includes beer and food pairings. According to the event website, the pairing area will be open from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, offering a maximum of 100 guests unlimited small plates of food especially curated for the brews being served. The choices include Chattanooga Brewing Co.’s Two Taverns Pale Ale paired with beer-marinated brats served on Bluff View Bakery pretzel rolls and topped with kraut and stone-ground mustard. SOURCE
