We just got our first hint of spring weather last weekend, and nothing goes better with that than a delicious beer and some good tunes.
This month we're joined by long-time friend and local beer aficionado Tyler Beard. Tyler is an avid homebrewer and works at Craft Brewed, a specialty store here in Nashville that's geared towards homebrewers and beer enthusiasts. Tyler assembled a bunch of his favorite beers and selected a tune to accompany each beer. It was a lot fun.
If you'd like to try this at home our playlist and pairings are below. Please drink responsibly, don't drink and drive, and observe all local laws.
