With a deep-rooted passion, recipes steeped in tradition and homemade bourbon, Bringle’s BBQ will have crawlers lining up for more.
Yazoo Brewing Company
When brewmaster Linus Hall first bought a homebrewing kit he never imaged that it would grow into the award winning brewery that it is today. With nearly a dozen signature beers in their repertoire, Yazoo is one of the premiere breweries in the south. Throughout the evening crawlers will sample from a variety of those beers and nosh on some snacks from local favorites.
Whenever a celebrity comes to town there’s a good chance you’ll see them ordering a perfectly balanced craft cocktail at the Patterson House – but the locals know it’s all about their insanely addictive tater tots. On the crawl get the best of both worlds, sip on delicious cocktails while scarfing down those tots.
CLOSING PARTY – The Rosewall
Housed in a voluminous 1930s warehouse, the Rosewall event space has a posh, lounge parlor vibe. At the end of the night everyone from both crawls will gather at The Rosewall to eat, drink and dance the night away.
