If there’s one thing we love as much as music, it’s beer, and it’s hard to deny that the good folks at Brooklyn Brewery make some of the finest craft brews around! That’s why we were extra excited to discover that Brooklyn would be invading Nashville this week, as the third stop on their Brooklyn Brewery Mash Tour. Touted as “adventures in food, film, music, books, and beer,” the Mash is custom tailored to fit the vibe of each city (so of course that means our stop includes plenty of music). We think they really nailed it with Nashville! Below, you can find a trailer for the Mash, as well as a schedule of this week’s events.
Part of the Mash is a benefit concert for Norton Records, this Friday at Mercy Lounge. We’ll be bringing you a more detailed preview of the lineup closer to the weekend!
