Keep Knoxville Beautiful will be hosting a happy hour and trash scour at Central Depot on Thursday, May 16, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The event will kick off at Central Depot, 103 W Depot Ave.


Volunteers will be cleaning up the Old City Central Depot District to create a clean and beautiful area for people to enjoy the thriving businesses within this area. After the cleanup, Central Depot will be hosting a pint night benefiting Keep Knoxville Beautiful!


A collaboration beer is being provided by ELST Brewing Company, Hops on the Spot and the students of the 2019 Winter Session Professional Brewing/Distilling Technology (PBDT) program of the Brewing and Distilling Center (BDC). The PBDT students designed the beer recipe that will be brewed by the brewers and students at the ELST Brewery. The beer will then be presented to the public at Central Depot Bar, and all donated proceeds of the ELST/BDC Double IPA will be given to Keep Knoxville Beautiful.


Dan Leonard, Brewer and Co-Owner of ELST Brewing is a former student of Dr. Todd White, President of the Brewing and Distilling Center. “Dan is a great brewer and the Brewing and Distilling Center students are proud to be collaborating with him; just as we are proud and so happy for Dan and his partners at Knoxville’s newest brewery,” says Dr. White. “Keep Knoxville Beautiful is an amazing and productive organization that we are honored at which to be associated. And, then, Will at Central Depot is generous to open his establishment to this fun cause and event, and in addition to the ELST/BDC beer, portions of the rest of the taps proceeds will go to the event.”
