PRESENTING SPONSOR: JACKALOPE

  Jackalope Brewing entered the Nashville scene in 2011, founded by Bailey Spaulding and Robyn Virball.  In 2013, Jackalope became the first Nashville craft brewery to can its beer. Robyn left the brewery in 2014 to pursue other interests, and Bailey, Steve, and the entire Jackalope team continue to grow our dream into what it is today. They distribute throughout Middle Tennessee, as well as Chattanooga and Memphis, and maintain a commitment to quality beer and community, all while having a little bit of fun. We have proudly partnered with them over the years to ensure our attendees the pleasure of tasty brews while shopping.

1. What Nashvillian inspires you the most?

Van Tucker is such a thoughtful, amazing person, and has done so much to foster the beautiful spirit of our city. She inspires me to think outside of the box and to make fulfilling connections that can make a good thing even better.

2. Favorite Summer activity in Nashville?

I love going for a hike in Percy Warner Park followed by a trip to Las Paletas.  


3. Are you a beach or pool person?

BOTH! Though in reality, I barely make it to either. Sigh.

4. What has surprised you the most about being a part of the business scene in Nashville?

Becoming connected to a lot of other people hustling and following their dreams has been such a wonderful, unexpected treat!

5. Favorite summer drink?  

My husband and I made up a cocktail with our Lovebird beer: two parts Lovebird (strawberry/raspberry hefeweizen), one part Lillet blanc, and one part prosecco, with big springs of fresh mint. It's so tasty and refreshing!
