East Nashville Beer Works and nonprofit Turnip Green Creative Reuse are teaming up to participate in The Metro Nashville Department of Public Works’ program, “Pick Up for a Pint.”
The gist of the program is you show up at the assigned time, help pick up litter around the brewery property and surrounding neighborhoods, and finish with a belly full of beer and a warm heart.
Anthony Davis, President of East Nashville Beer Works and 2018 East Nashvillian of the Year, says, “We participated in ‘Pick Up for a Pint’ last year. The volunteers reached out, and it sounded pretty simple to me. As a community centered brewery, it’s right up our alley. We’re happy to host this again in 2019!”
Public Works will provide all supplies including trash grabbers, gloves, garbage bags, and safety vests. All you have to do is physically show up and help for an hour.
“After some great neighborhood volunteers pick up around the neighborhood, which may include Highland Heights and the Tom Joy area, we offer a buy-one-get-one special on beer pints. Everyone hangs for a bit in the taproom and enjoys some brews,” says Davis.
On top of the good hang and BOGO beer pints, Turnip Green Creative Reuse will host a reuse art activity at the brewery.
According to Public Works, there are currently 100 million pieces of litter on Tennessee’s state roadways, and it costs $15 million of Tennessee taxpayer money to clean it up every year. If you’d like to help combat Tennessee’s litter problem, see event details listed below.
“Pick Up for a Pint” will take place Sunday, Jan. 27, from 11a.m. to 1 p.m. at East Nashville Beer Works, located at 320 Trinity Lane, Nashville, TN 37207.
