Ahh, summer sittin’ + patio sippin’. Trista here, and I know a lot of you are missing your favorite Chattanooga spots to gather with friends and have a drink or two while the warm summer evening hangs around.
It’s no surprise that Chattanooga’s growth has fostered an increasing interest in beer. A decade ago, only a handful of breweries were available, and now the city is home to 11 excellent breweries that offer a wide variety of interesting beers. We’re not quite Asheville yet (with 30+ breweries to visit) but we’re definitely on the beer map.
Fri., Aug. 7 was International Beer Day, and we know we’re a few days late, but we’d like to celebrate our local breweries. And besides, why not make it a week-long celebration?
Oh BTW, we also added a fan favorite beer to try from each brewery from Untappd.
