If you're anything like most Nashvillians, your favorite part of the city are the festivals, the parties, the art, the music; all of it percolating together to make this city piping hot.

12th & Broad has a few things brewing for the upcoming calendar year that you're going to want to get in on, and only for the monthly cost of two craft beers. Two beers, y'all. OK, so not Santa's Pub pricing on beers ($2, what?!), but still, it's a really good deal.

Here's what your $14 can get you in the coming months:
