I had noticed the building a while back while traveling I-26 south in Asheville, NC. As we merged onto I-26 from I-40, if I looked quickly back to my right I could see the building with “Riverbend Malt House” written on the side. There’s no telling how many times I mentioned to my wife that […]

Collaborations are fun, especially when it’s a collaboration between two breweries that you know and love. In this case our friends at Abridged Beer Company and Alliance Brewing Company sat down together to make a New England Style IPA. As each brewery’s acronym is ABC, the Pythagorean Theorem came into the discussion (A2+B2=C2) and from […]

Well folks, it’s Saturday and I just mowed the grass. Those that know me know the following about me; mow the grass, earn a beer. Thems the rules. Being as my yard takes a bit more than an hour to mow, it’s mostly on a slope and I push mow it, a beer is the […]

It’s no secret that we dig our friends just up the road in Crozet, VA. Northern Lights IPA has come to the rescue on more than one trip into northern Virginia for work and Little Red Roostarr Coffee Cream Stout is a beer that the Mrs and I can both agree on. Another thing that […]

Two months. That’s how long it’s been since I posted last. A lot has happened in two months and I’ve had a lot of great beer. Kids, work, ya’ll know the drill. This past May though, something pretty awesome happened. Our friends at Hutton & Smith Brewing Company took home the gold at the World […]

Our friends at Elkmont Exchange recently started canning. We’re big fans of cans – for a number of reasons – but more than anything else, it’s great to have another place in town packaging their beer.  It makes it a whole lot easier to take a little local flair to a friends bbq, out in […]

Well friends, it’s been a hot minute since we last posted. Seems as though when the weather gets warmer, everything picks up. The evenings of being hunkered down fade away as the lush greens, whites, yellows and reds of spring invite us out into nature. While I love this time of year it sure does […]

We love IPAs. Always have and, perhaps, always will. For a long time Don and I would look for the biggest IPAs we could find, bring them home, we’d share them, talk about them and compare to previous pints. Now, we’ve been fortunate to get so much good beer here in Knoxville that a lot of the […]

The Mrs came home with two crowlers. One, an IPA, was wonderful and was her attempt at choosing something that I’d like – and I did. The second, called ‘Junct, I assumed was a take on “adjuncts” but had no idea what style beer it was. Turns out the words “Woodford Reserve” my favorite bourbon, “maple syrup” […]
