This past week we held our first public cupping event at Mantra Artisan Ales. Mantra is a brewing company that started in early of 2015 by Derrick Morse and Chad Frost and opened just down the road from us in Franklin, TN. We decided to do pairings of beer flights to go with our coffee offerings and allow people to experience the similarities between the world of beer and coffee. The dedication to their craft, the selection of unique beers, and their love of hospitality are what drew us to their company and made us want to partner with them in this first cupping experience. We are so grateful for those of you that came out to support us and those that walked in planning to have a beer and walked out with coffee in hand! We were able to meet so many of you and hope that you take what you learned from the event into your everyday coffee and beer experiences - really taking the time to smell and taste the time that was put into making them!
For those of you that couldn't make it, we wanted to share some photos of the event and to let you know that you didn't completely miss out - we will be doing this again! We promise!
