Blues, Brews, & BBQ - Supporting Veterans & 1st Responders

Donation protected
We are accepting donations to support our local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) posts and charities endorsed by first responders in Coffee County, Tennessee. Donating is a powerful way to give back to those who have dedicated their lives to protecting our freedoms and ensuring our safety. These organizations provide crucial services such as mental health support, emergency assistance, and community outreach programs. Your donation helps enhance the well-being of veterans and assist first responders, fostering a stronger, more resilient community. By contributing, you honor their sacrifices and support initiatives that directly improve their quality of life and the overall safety and unity of Coffee County.



We also invite you to join us at Common John Brewing Company for Blues, Brews, and Barbecue, an amateur barbecue competition, that promises a day of great music, delicious food, and community spirit!




Enjoy live blues music on Sunday, June 23rd, from 12 PM to 5 PM while sampling mouthwatering barbecue and sides. Gates open exclusively for first responders and their families from 12 PM to 12:30 PM, and then everyone is welcome to join the feast. 100% of all net profits will be donated to VFW Post 10904 and the charity of choice for each first responder organization. Come out for a fantastic cause and a flavorful good time!

Mike Cardinal and his wife Jackie relocated to the Manchester, TN area in 2018. During their time here, as small business owners, they’ve actively sought out opportunities to be active in the community and give back when opportunities presented. Being and avid “smoker” the Blues, Brews and Barbecue event was the perfect opportunity for Mike and Jackie along with their company Universal Impact Technologies, Inc. to have a little fun, smoke a little meat and raise monies and awareness for our Veterans and First Responders.

Common John Brewing Company
