Tennessee Brew Works and Five Wits Brewing Release Hazy Trails Collaboration Brew for TN State Parks


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville’s Tennessee Brew Works (“TBW”) and Chattanooga’s Five Wits Brewing Co.(“FWB”)have teamed-up to benefit Tennessee State Parks through their collaboration, Hazy Trails IPA.

This new collaboration beer, Hazy Trails, was brewed specifically to help raise funds for the Tennessee State Parks Conservancy. At 5.6% ABV, this tropical and juicy hazy India Pale Ale drinks exceptionally well in the Tennessee heat.

Originally intended to be showcased during a fundraising initiative this spring, the collaboration was put on hiatus during the COVID-19 shutdown.

Hazy Trails IPA will be tapped at both Tennessee Brew Works, 809 Ewing Ave in Nashville and Five Wits Brewing Co, 1501 Long St in Chattanooga, this Wednesday, June 24, and portions of the proceeds will go to benefit the Tennessee State Parks Conservancy. It’s a limited release, so grab it while you can!

“Bringing people and communities together is what we believe in—it is the centerpiece of every decision we make at Five Wits Brewing, said Nathan Michaels, co-founder of Five Wits Brewing. “We consider it a great privilege to work with both Tennessee Brew Works and Tennessee State Parks to heighten awareness for something we passionately support, but also to bring all communities together to support each other.”

“We do not want the extraordinary events of 2020 to impede our philanthropic plans. Our communities need our support more than ever,” said Christian Spears, founder and president of Tennessee Brew Works. “Both of our organizations felt it was imperative to resume our previously planned charitable initiatives as soon as possible.”
