Tommy Biglin from Storyhouse said:


We’re delighted to be partnering with That Beer Place for this unique event to bring together some of the best craft beers for the community to enjoy. It’s about sharing good drinks and good times. 


 It’s not just about the beer—it’s the stories that pour with them. We’re creating a laid-back weekend where breweries themselves serve you their hand-picked brews, each with its own tale. Here, beer lovers and newbies unite over shared passions and great beer. adds Lisa Lord, Co-Founder of That Beer Place.
