Winter Warmer presented by Woodland Wine Merchant is back for it's seventh year and as many of you know really is Nashville's best beer festival. Featuring 35(ish) hand-selected local, regional, nation craft breweries, and select imports. As always we focus on stouts, porters, barley wines, winter seasonals, and anything out of a barrel (sours too). To mix things up this year we will be changing our event times from 11am-4pm to 3pm-8pm, you can expect fire pits, great lighting and new layout for the festival. It is going to be incredible, and ticket go on sale Friday November 3, 2017 at 9am CST. You can also join us Thursday October 26 at Blackstone Brewing Company starting at 5pm for our advance ticket purchase lottery. You must be in person to enter and win, drawing begins at 6pm.
As always the 12 South Winter Warmer takes place in Sevier Park in the 12 South neighborhood.
Not familair with the venue, please see the map below for directions. The actual festival is hosted in the North East section of the park, on the lower field.
We always suggest that our guests arrange for a safe ride, be it a designated driver or a local cab company or Uber/Lyft. We will share our exclusive Uber deal as we get closer to the festival. If you do drive please make sure you park in properly marked parking areas so your vehicle is where you left it after the event. There is NO PARKING in Sevier Park.
Please help us show the community that we are responsible by being aware of your alcohol consumption and do NOT drive while intoxicated. All attendees, staff members, and volunteers’ actions before, during, and after the event will affect the future of the 12 South Winter Warmer. That being said, we look forward to a great festival and having you all be part of this awesome event!
For everyone, consider walking! Especially if you live in or around the area, you will need it! If you need to drive, have a friend or family member drop you off or pick you up. If you must drive home plan to visit a local dining establishment, have a nice meal and plenty of water before heading home. SAFTEY FIRST
For our 7th year of the Winter Warmer we have decided to mix up our usual education tent, and convert it to the Kuchnia & Keller vertical tent. We will share our vertical tapping/bottle opening scheudle as we get closer. A highlight will be a 5 year vertical of Goose Island Bourbon County Stout on draft just to give you a taste of what to expect!
The Oasis Bike Workshop is a collaboration between the Oasis Center and Halcyon Bike Shop. The Workshop is a free, six week program open to Nashville’s youth, and thanks to our friends at Humana, it is housed in a beautiful new workshop at the Youth Opportunity Center.
The Bike Workshop grew from concern that youth of our city do not have adequate transportation, don’t get adequate exercise, and are often overlooked as agents of change. Collectively, we agree that bicycling is a healthy and sustainable mode of transportation that is often forgotten or considered to be too difficult and dangerous for youth on our urban streets. Other times, bikes are simply unaffordable.
Since June 2009, over 400 youth have completed the bike program. That means 400 more young people own a bike, are safe and skilled riders and now have access to more opportunities than ever before!
