This year’s Beerfest is scheduled for Saturday, October 19, 2013, from 1:00-5:00 PM. We have been planning for months and have some changes coming this year that we are excited about. We are moving the festival to a larger location in Cooper-Young and have had a great response from some new brewers in the region that we are thrilled to bring to the festival.
We hope you can join us for some great craft beer and fun on October 19!
Thank you to all who came out to the third annual Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest yesterday. We had a great time and hope that you did as well.
We couldn’t have done this without help. First, we want to thank the brewers and homebrew clubs that made the festival possible:
Second, we had tremendous support for the beerfest and Cooper-Young from our sponsors.
Some of our great, local businesses contributed to make sure that our visiting brewers had a taste of the wonderful things that Memphis has to offer.
Last but not least, we had dedicated volunteers that came to the festival, did plenty of dirty and sweaty work setting up the site, pouring beer, getting ice and tearing things down at the end. Thank you for your help.
We will work hard to plan the fourth annual Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest for 2013, try to keep the great things and improve the shortcomings. If you have any suggestions, we would love to hear from you.
We hope to see you in 2013!

The Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest on Oct. 13 features only craft beers from within a day’s drive of Memphis. The festival benefits the Cooper-Young Community Association, a non-profit organization that maintains the Trestle Art, organizes clean-ups, and does many other things in this Midtown neighborhood.
This year’s festival will include food from Central BBQ, Stone Soup Café and Sweet Grass. Goner Records will be playing Memphis music. Celtic Crossing, Memphis Flyer, Memphis Sport and WEVL are also sponsors.
“Craft brewing is growing in America and the Mid-South, and our festival is growing with it,” Andy Ashby, CYRB chairman, said. “We’ve added several new breweries this year, including several which aren’t yet available in Memphis. That said, we’re still making sure to keep lines short while focusing on educating people about good beer.”
For more information about the festival, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
