The 2nd annual Tennessee Championship of Beer (TNCB) is born from a need to recognize commercial breweries of the Southeastern USA for the quality pints currently being served in the region. The 2016 Tennessee Championship of Beers will be hosted by the Thirsty Orange Brew Extravaganza as an official event of the Tri-Cities Craft Beer Week. The TNCB is Tennessee’s first and largest commercial brewery medal event. The competition closely follows the style of the Great American Beer Festival at a fraction of the cost! If you are not familiar with how this works, it is not a competition to determine whose beer is better than another’s; your beer is to be judged and awarded strictly on its own merit.
