Yes my friends, the rumor is true.  People use the saying “A dream come true” somewhat loosely at times.  Well just a few years back I had an idea that I dreamed about from time to time.  That idea was to start a small business the brewed fresh, local beer.  That said business would be located in my little agriculture community of ,TN and distribute locally to the town that I was born and raised in, Gallatin TN.  Folks, on Saturday, February 21st, starting at 5pm, the very first glass of BriarScratch Beer will be sold to the public.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this right here is a dream come true.  Not a sappy fairy tale la-la land dream…..a real, entrepreneurial, grass roots, flavorful, tangible dream…..in liquid form.  So for those of you that are around Middle TN and can make it out to our release party, I sure look forward to seeing you there!  We will release into 5 establishments beginning that night.  Details are on facebook at this link TAP THE TOWN.

  • Beginning March 12th we plan to release in 3 more Gallatin locations, including a growler filling station at our local premiere Wine and Spirits store.
  • Around early April we will release into the city of Hendersonville.  Be on the lookout for details!!
  • Late May will be a special event for the release of Sumner Summer Ale.  It’s going to be a doozy!

So I have my work cut out for me.  Am I ready? Kinda.  Is Gallatin ready?  Probably not. Are you ready?  I think yes!
