Boro Bites & Brews



Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

Capably guided by Amelia Bozeman, the Business Education Partnership Foundation (BEP) held the third annual ‘Boro Bites and Brews outdoors at Murfreesboro Medical Clinic (MMC). Sponsored by Stones River Total Beverages and MMC, this event featured live music, vendors, food trucks, and a vast array of beer flavors and varieties from local home brewers, larger-scale craft breweries, and microbrewery startups.

Proceeds from ‘Boro Bites and Brews support BEP’s programs that prepare local students for the workforce by connecting classroom lessons to careers. BEP is perhaps best known in the community for its tuition-free summer career exploration camps for students. BEP is an education nonprofit based at the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce. BEP is the only organization created to serve students, teachers, school counselors, and administrators in both the Murfreesboro City Schools and the Rutherford County Schools.
