The Casual Pint To Celebrate Chattanooga Franchise Grand Opening

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Franchise owners Byran and Kelly Hamilton and The Casual Pint president Nathan Robinette will officially open the eighth craft beer market location to the Chattanooga community with a grand opening event. 

Former restaurateurs and franchise owners of several pizza locations in Knoxville, the Hamiltons are the first franchisees to officially open a location outside of the greater Knoxville area. Despite having a full family, the Hamiltons plan to expand their Casual Pint franchise even further to include an additional Hamilton County location in 2015.

The Casual Pint is the fastest growing franchise in the craft beer industry and features hundreds of local, national and international brews, an ever-changing 22 tap wall for growler and pint sales as well as an inviting atmosphere and dedicated bar area for on-site tastings. The Chattanooga grand opening will feature exclusive activities and giveaways such as free 64oz Growlers for the first 25 patrons, exclusive Casual Pint/Saw Works Brewing Company branded pint glasses with any Saw Works pint purchase and more.

The grand opening will be on Saturday, from 1 p.m. – closing, at 103 Cherokee Blvd. Suite B, Chattanooga.

Founded in 2011, The Casual Pint has grown from a Knoxville-based, family-owned market with two locations to a full-blown franchise with nationwide opportunities. Following the first franchise’s opening earlier this year, the brand has grown to seven complete markets with the Cherokee Boulevard slated as number eight, and the first location outside of Tennessee confirmed for a 2015 opening in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Unlike other The Casual Pint locations in Tennessee, the Chattanooga store will be the first to offer a small plate food menu. Items available will vary from BBQ Pork Flatbreads, Chicken Wings, Pretzels & Beer Cheese Dip, and more.

Here We Go Again With The Same Cummings Highway, 12th Street Flooding - And Response

Deal With The Graffiti Vandals

I travel to other neat old cities and don't see nearly the graffiti vandalism as in Chattanooga. Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
