Recap of ‘Adult Field Day’ at Sweet Grass Next Door with Yazoo Brewing Company

April 24, 2012 By: mike Category: Breweries, Craft beer, Events

On Sunday, Sweet Grass Next Door laid down some sod on its back parking lot and helped a bunch of adults relive their childhood.

“Adult Field Day” featured all your favorite grade school games, from a potato sack race to a three-legged race to an egg toss … but with beer.

And not just any beer. Yazoo Brewing Company’s Ivan Chester brought all the beer left over from the Memphis Brewfest to the Cooper-Young event, including Hop Project, Gerst and Hefeweizen. It was basically a Brewfest after-party, with burgers and hotdogs on the grill, live music and lots of fun and games.

There was even a FuzzyBrew team that took 1st place in the potato sack race! But our winning ways ended there.
