I am analyzing the proposals as we speak, and the only one I could get to is Richmond. However, 2018 may bring more freedom, so I will stay with this thread. I see myself as a Johnny Appleseed of beer, and that is all I need to say.

Cheers,

Nashville would be sweet. Is the beer scene decent?


There are a nice variety of breweries that don't distribute out much. You've got great hazy IPAs from Bearded Iris, Fruited sours, dry-hopped IPAs and imperial stouts from Southern Grist for quality beers that are hard to find outside of the city. Lot's of sours from Yazoo as well. There are a lot of breweries around town now with a variety of styles and lots of stuff that can be ticked for the tickers. A fairly good amount of bars as well to choose from. Craft Brewed being a great place to hang. There are about 4 breweries and a new sake spot that are in a walkable area of a bout 2-3 blocks which is nice as well. There's also a ton of live music and great restaurants for those interested as well.

I think Nashville would be cool and would definitely go if proposed and wins. It's been on my city wish list for awhile now.

Nashville would be fun, definitely.

So should I throw together a Nashville proposal? Is there a way to see what all is involved in putting a proposal together? I'm happy to work on it.

Winnipeg is one of the 5 coldest cities in the world (not a great beer scene either). And while I will certainly travel anywhere for the RBWG it would be sweet to see SD, Austin or Tampa out in a bid :) good luck to all proposals though!

Nashville would be possible for me.
