We owe a huge debt of gratitude to a bunch of people.
First, we have some fantastic sponsors that helped us pull all of this off. Big thanks to Madison Growler & Bottle Shop, Southwind Wine & Spirits, Sweet Grass, Central BBQ, Stone Soup Cafe, Midtown Autowerks, Memphis Made Brewing Company, Cash Saver, Yellow Cab of Memphis, Goner Records, Ballinger Enterprises, Huey's Restaurant, WEVL FM 89.9, Combustion LLC, Party Concepts, Stax Records, The Bar-B-Q Shop, Shotwell Candy Co., and the Cooper Young Community Association.
All of those local businesses made donations that made this event possible. Please help us support these businesses that support Cooper-Young and the CY Beerfest.
Second, we couldn't do this without all of the terrific brewers from our region of the country who participated. We genuinely appreciate their support, the time they took
to come to Cooper-Young and their delicious beer that they donated. Cheers to them! It has been great to get to know this terrific group of people over the years. Please help us support these local craft brewers.
Third, we need to thank all of the great attendees who came this year. We obviously couldn't do this without your support.
Fourth, the great volunteers that helped us Saturday deserve our thanks. Many people gave their time to help us set up and tear down the site, pour beer, work the gate, etc. We greatly appreciate their help and hope they had a good time while they were doing it.
Finally, I would like to recognize the hard work and hundreds of volunteer hours put in by our organizing committee. We spend about 8-9 months of the year planning this event in an attempt to pull it off successfully and make sure everyone has a great experience. No one gets paid to organize and produce this event.
All of you have had a part in allowing us to throw this party for the past 5 years. We hope you continue your support so that we can do it for the next 5.
