It goes without saying that the local beer community has been nothing short of thrilled as we’ve watched Matthew Cummings Pretentious Glass Company and then Pretentious Beer Company spin up.

It’s cold. Fortunately a warm-ish front appears to be on the horizon. That said, it’s always fun to build a fire and open up a big, malty, sweet beer and just hang out. Fortunately our friend at Abridged Beer Company just added a crowler machine to their arsenal of fermentation, so here we are. On […]

Chores are done. I have no where else to be today. I just opened 4 beers. The Mrs. has been alerted that her assistance is needed. She’s the resident stout-spert and I can’t do 4 beers all by myself. These are 4 incredible beers. Let’s be honest, variants are fun. Starr Hill does variants with […]

There was a recent post asking about the hype around Cold Mountain. “I don’t get it,” the poster inquired asking others to help fill in the blanks. There was nothing malicious about the inquiry. Simply, this release is different from what many of us may be used to. Cold Mountain is a great beer and […]

Limited Beer Releases: We Are Hoarders

Guilty. I’ve done it. Buying cases of beer, running from store to store, trying to get as much of an allocated beer as I can. Maybe it’s some sort of innate hunter/gatherer mentality ingrained in our subconscious. Maybe it’s because we’ve been thirsty for so long in Knoxville. Many breweries passed us by for so […]

Howdy beer fans, It’s that wonderful time of the year when porters, stouts and winter warmers become the norm as we begin to hunker down in these colder months.
