As we all know, breweries have been affected by the current pandemic that has swept our towns and cities across the country. Many local breweries have had to quickly evolve and adapt to the changing landscape, closing taprooms and offering to-go beer purchases.
A standout during these trying times is Birds Fly South in Greenville, SC. The booming “funk first” brewery’s 2020 plans came to a screeching halt, but that didn’t stop them from finding fun ways to serve up their award-winning beer. In order to evolve, shift and engage their community, the brewery has developed a series of virtual beer events to keep people connected in new ways, pioneering how we can all enjoy beer together.
Next week, over 14,000 craft beer industry members will descend upon the city of Nashville to attend the Craft Brewers Conference, an industry-facing event comprised of four days of seminars, educational sessions, events and a trade show, culminating with this year’s World Beer Cup awards ceremony. But for a handful of lucky early arrivers, Nashville will also play host to one of the more unique, industry-friendly beer festivals in the form of Yazoo Brewing’s Funk Fest.
