Following the awards will be our 3rd annual "Club Crawl". This is basically the same as NHC club night with a few "tweaks". We will have the ballroom set up with tables and jockey boxes where regional clubs can bring their beers to showcase. In addition, this year we are hoping to get the involvement of the local craft beer community in Nashville and surrounding cities. We are hoping to have a variety of local craft breweries serving their beer as well as having the regional clubs on hand. This was a blast last year, so hopefully the fun will continue.
