A celebration was held at the Brentwood Kroger on Franklin Road for its release.

“[This beer] provides us with an opportunity to raise money for the conservancy,  for us to do just what we do – to preserve, protect in perpetuity those cultural assets of the state,” said Brock Hill with Tennessee Parks and Conservation.

The plan to create a state park beer came up two years ago. A portion of all sales will help preserve state parks.
