5th Annual Chattabrewga Is May 13

Thursday, April 27, 2017

The fifth annual Chattabrewga returns May 13, from noon to 5 p.m. at the First Tennessee Pavilion.

Chattabrewga is Chattanooga’s premier special-release and rare-beer festival. General Admission tickets are $50 and include unlimited craft beer samples, no tokens required. 50 VIP tickets are available for $80 and include access to the Terminal Brewhouse VIP Food Pairing Lounge.

Terminal Brewing will be serving their delicious food paired with notable beers available to VIP attendees.

Chattabrewga (formerly the Chattanooga Craft Beer Festival) is presented by Terminal Brewhouse and Rhizome Productions. Chattabrewga is supported locally by Imbibe Chattanooga and Staybridge Suites. A portion of net proceeds supports the Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition.

Gates open at noon and the festival ends at 5 p.m., with the last call at 4:45 p.m. VIP guests get early access at 11:30 a,m. This is a 21+ event and guests must present a valid ID to enter. And as much as we love kids and dogs, please, no children or pets will be permitted. Also, please no large bags or backpacks. The event goes on rain or shine. But if it rains, there is ample protection from the elements in the First Tennessee Pavilion. Inside the pavilion, music will be provided by Asheville’s DJ Jut Rut and food trucks will be available if anyone gets hungry.

“The thing about Chattabrewga that set us apart from other area beer festivals is one price gets you in and covers the beer. There’s no extra tokens to deal with. Also, we’re proud to support the Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition and have raised $10,000 for the great work they do,” said Matt Leff, founder of Rhizome Productions.
