Brewed in Dixie, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Nashville's brewing history. Although based in Nashville, Brewed in Dixie extends its mission throughout Tennessee, as well as the rest of the country.
Brewed in Dixie is currently raising funds to place a historical marker at the location where the William Gerst Brewing Company once stood. The Nashville Historical Commission has approved the sign and it will be placed at 6th Avenue South. The goal is to raise $2,300 for the cost of the cast-iron sign by April 2011. Below is an example of the marker:
