Nashville, Tennessee – November 10, 2016 – Tennessee Brew works celebrates the release of the “King Chestnut” brown ale, created with real American chestnuts.
Once prominent, a blight destroyed almost 98% of the American Chestnut trees between 1904-1906. Two of the largest surviving American chestnut trees are actually in Jackson County, Tennessee. These days, the American Chestnut Foundation is working hard to repopulate the trees across the country. What better way to honor the history of the chestnut than through beer?!
