Beer drinkers converge on Hernando for Square on Tap

October 20, 2010 By: mike Category: Events, Memphis

I think one beer festival per month is my limit.

So after the Cooper Young Regional Beerfest on Oct. 9, I decided to skip  The Square on Tap beer festival last weekend in Hernando.

Plus, I was a little turned off that Square on Tap, which marketed itself as a “microbrew festival,” was promising that it would have “all your favorites” — Budweiser, Miller and Coors — in addition to football on TVs and live music. The Cooper Young festival was more about sampling and learning about different styles of beer, which is more my speed.

Nonetheless, the festival drew more than 550 people to the Hernando town square, and featured oatmeal stouts, mocha porters and brown ales, according to the DeSoto Times Tribune.

About 70 different beers were served, and the festival attracted regional brewers that included Lazy Magnolia, Abita and Ghost River, according to a story in The Commercial Appeal.

Here’s a video that gives you a sense of what the event was like:

So, did any of you make it to The Square on Tap? If you did, let us know how it was in the comments below.

  1. I was thinking of going but was too wiped out from the CYRB.

    That said, I’m glad this event was held. There can’t be enough beer festivals in the Greater Memphis area. Anything which gets people talking about craft beer is a good thing.
