Capital City Beverages will be donating a beer for us to sample and their Craft Beer Manager will be on hand to present to us.

The beer we will be sampling is from Yazoo Brewing Company from Nashville, TN. The couple that started the company are actually from MS and got married on next to the Yazoo River…hence the name of the company. Or so I have been told.

The beer of choice is Yazoo Summer Brew – light and tangy wheat ale influenced by traditional german styles with a tart finish.

The Chef is working on food pairing and will be presenting us with small bites for everyone to try. We just found out which beer it would be this morning. The beer is new to our market area.

Yazoo Brewing Co.Game Plan – flexible:

  • 6:40- I have everyone seated and introduce myself and talk a little about Barley’s Angels and why I wanted to start a Jackson chapter and the plans for our group as we grow…fundraisers, town activities, tshirt design suggestion and so on.
  • 7:00 – Derek Nelson, Craft Brew Manager @ Capital City Beverages will tell us a little about the women being the original brewers, what defines a craft beer and why we should support those breweries. Then describe the beer of choice and how to use the scorecard. The servers will bring out the small bite pairing for everyone to sample towards the end of his presentation.
  • 7:20 – Our Chef, Ryan Bell, will briefly tell us about the small bites and why he felt it would pair well with the Yazoo Summer Brew. Then we will allow time for everyone to talk about the beer and food and ask the guys questions.
  • 7:50 – I get up thank both of them for all the info and speaking to us and invite the ladies to stay and have a pint (on their own tab of course), make new friends, and thank everyone for coming to the first meet up of Broads & Brews!

Summer is here! It’s that time of year when the heat is on, the days are long, & the cool summer beer goes down easy. It’s not uncommon this time of year to enjoy an extra pint or 2 & to stay out a little later enjoying the summer nights with friends. But what happens at the end of the night? Do you walk to your car alone, or do you have a friend walk with you? Did you park in a well-lit area, or the only spot you could find 3 blocks away?

June’s meeting will feature a presentation from Wendy Vazquez Ernest, certified instructor of the Rape Aggression Defense System of self defense. Wendy has been teaching violence prevention strategies since 2005 & holds certifications in basic & advanced self defense for women, as well as teaching the R.A.D System at USF.

For this month only, because this is a topic that we feel is important for EVERY woman this meeting will be FREE. A $5 donation is recommended to purchase new equipment for Wendy to use in her trainings. Beer will be available for purchase.
