On the heels of Nashville's first-ever Craft Beer Week which was held in late March, Blackstone Restaurant and Brewery has come up with a novel idea to celebrate the current American Craft Beer Week from May 14-20. In an effort to celebrate the independent spirit of craft beer drinkers, they are presenting a special “Declaration of Beer Independence” for their fans to demonstrate their support for craft brewers.

According to their announcement, everyone who signs a "Declaration of Beer Independence" at Blackstone Restaurant & Brewery on West End now through Sunday, May 20, will receive a card entitling them to special beer pricing for the entire week. "In addition, every signed 'Declaration of Beer Independence' will be displayed at Blackstone to celebrate the growing number of people who recognize that American-brewed craft beers have made the United States the envy of every beer-drinking nation in the world for the quality and variety of beers brewed."

Co-owner Stephanie Weins said Blackstone, established in 1994, is "very proud to be part of a craft beer brewing nation. American Craft Beer Week is an opportunity to introduce more people to the great taste of our craft beers and to thank our customers who have been enjoying our craft beers for many years.”

In addition to Blacktone's excellent Chaser Pale, Nut Brown Ale, St. Charles Porter and APA, they've just released their first seasonal brew, Picnic. It is a lighter version of a pale ale referred to as an "English summer ale" and should be a great way to beat the heat this summer. Swing by this week to try out the newest member of the Blackstone family and declare your independence by pounding some "English" beers.
