COOKEVILLE – WCTE is continuing the long-standing tradition of Blues and Brews. This year WCTE is collaborating with more businesses and breweries than ever to make Blues and Brews as safe as possible.
In this new format for WCTE Blues and Brews, each ticket holder will receive a mixed six-pack of craft beer from Budweiser and Cherokee Distributing. Also included in each six-pack is an “adventure pass” – a mixed assortment of coupons to various participating restaurants. At each of the participating restaurants or breweries, the coupon can be redeemed for a glass of one of the three featured beers at each location. WCTE is collaborating with various locations like Seven Senses, Bert Driver Nursery and many more locations around the Upper Cumberland. WCTE is also helping host a blues night at Red Silo Brewery. For more details about blues night, keep up with WCTE.org

Additionally, WCTE will be hosting two Zoom calls known as “Meet the Brewers.” The first Zoom session is with the Home Brewers Association.

This will be a question and answer call all in the comfort of your own home.

Blues & Brews is a major fundraiser for WCTE with all proceeds benefiting the local PBS station. This year is the most adventurous year yet for Blues and Brews. Participants will be able to travel to previously unexplored areas of the Upper Cumberland to enjoy nice cold ale.
“We hope that people will consider this new and engaging opportunity to support WCTE PBS,” said Avery Hutchins. “The virtual event offers a variety of beer sampling, adventure and virtual learning.”
