#PuckettsLoves the Columbia Community!

The holiday season may have passed, but we like to keep the spirit of giving goin’ all year long! Puckett’s Columbia was thrilled to cap off 2017 with donations of more than $2,000 to two local organizations we love: Columbia Main Street and Columbia Academy. In our book, fun events + great food + giving to others = a win, win, win!

Our holiday fundraising event, “Sip, Swirl and Shop,” was all about supporting local businesses on the Columbia square. Our Puckett’s Columbia team organized a classic ladies’ night out with appetizers, wine tastings, music and a special after-hours opportunity to shop from some of our favorite Columbia’s retailers. More than half of ticket sales went to Columbia Main Street, a member of the Tennessee Main Street Program designed to revitalize historic downtown business centers.

On Thursday, Jan. 11, our COO, Claire Crowell, and Puckett’s General Manager Ricki Terry presented a check for $1,760 to Columbia Main Street Executive Director Kristi Martin; Columbia Main Street board member Michele Watson; Columbia Main Street board member and chair of the December event Lisa Butler, and Vickie Kelly, owner of The Balloon Shop in downtown Columbia. Needless to say, the event went down in the books as a huge success and a lot of fun!

In November, we were excited to team up with the incredible students at Columbia Academy who are changing their community by donating tens of thousands of canned goods to local charities each year. Puckett’s Columbia gladly supported their efforts by contributing 10 percent of one day’s sales, which amounted to $626! We loved welcoming students and families into our restaurant to support this great cause, and we happily cheered them on when they raised 82,360 cans, surpassing the original goal of 70,000. Way to go, CA! 

Andy Marshall, CEO of A. Marshall Hospitality and Puckett’s Columbia Assistant Manager Christy Anthony, along with A. Marshall Hospitality Marketing and Community Relations Associate Lindsay Curtis, presented the check to the Columbia Academy administration: Lisa Bennett, VP for Development; Ben Diles, Director of Spiritual Development; and Jon Bennett, Upper School Principal.

Puckett's Brew

Our restaurants have a new beer offering on their menus, and in true Puckett’s fashion, it is produced locally at Nashville’s oldest craft brewery, Blackstone Brewing Company. Their Helles style Lager is the new “Puckett’s Brew” and is now being served in all Puckett’s restaurants, including Puckett’s Boat House!

Why’d we choose Blackstone, you ask? Well, several Blackstone beers have long been staples on Puckett’s menus, and their continual popularity inspired us to pursue a partnership that would spotlight a Blackstone Brewing Company product as the crowd favorite “Puckett’s Brew.”

The creation of the lager is an art, and it requires a minimum of 30 days to perfect through a production cycle that takes place in Blackstone’s brewing system from Germany, made especially to brew German-style lagers.

We toured the brewery and chatted with Thomas Solinsky, director of sales and marketing for Blackstone, about the careful planning and quality control that goes into the crafting of the beer.

“Throughout the process, we strive for the highest quality possible when crafting our beers,” Solinsky told us. “If the brew cycle is finished and we are not satisfied with the final product, we will hold back on selling it and start over.”

Light, with low bitterness and a crisp and pleasant malty flavor, Solinksy said his team settled on this recipe because it is well balanced and doesn’t have too strong of a flavor. This beer will pair well with just about anything on the menu, which makes it an easy sell when eating BBQ and fried chicken at Puckett’s!

Located just west of downtown Nashville at 2312 Clifton Ave., Blackstone Brewery has recently added a tasting room and will soon allow visitors to enjoy outdoor tastings in a beer garden. Situated on 3.5 acres of land, it boasts 130 fruit trees and various vegetable plants, and produces its own honey on-site.

Swing by and grab a mason jar of the Puckett’s Brew; you won’t be disappointed!
