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.

  • Editor's Letter

    August is the calendar month when summer begins its slow crawl towards autumn, but not before a few more hot days and thunderstorms. Enjoy the bounty of the season: vine-ripened tomatoes, ripe melon, sweet corn on the cob, and blueberries are just a few of my favorites. Luckily for us, Murfreesboro is blessed with one of the finest Farmer’s Markets in the state where we can do just that! Nothing screams summer better than a homecooked meal of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally grown and sold. Read More
  • Garage Barre + Bike

    You may have noticed the corner of Church St and Vine St on Murfreesboro’s downtown square looks a little different. What once was an empty building with a black coat of paint now features a pink-and-white striped wall (that you’ve probably seen photographed on social media.) Inside these striped walls are barres, bikes, and a community that is flipping the idea of a “boutique fitness studio” completely upside down. Read More
