Monday Night Brewing | Blind Pirate Blood Orange IPA

21 June 2019 by , No Comments

It’s funny how names and branding can alter your perspective on things. Monday Night Brewing certainly has done that for this snob. I’ll probably never look at Monday evenings the same way. Regardless of where I travel or what I’m attending for my children – hey, it’s Monday night, right? It’s great to see breweries […]

Blackberry Farm Brewery | Yallarhammer Pale Ale

16 June 2019 by , No Comments

It’s hot. As I write the beads of moisture are sliding slowly down the now empty white can adorned with the colorful Blackberry Farm Brewery logo. The ceiling fan on the screen porch gently moves the moderately humid East Tennessee air while my children play with the garden hose in the backyard. Late spring – […]

Well friends, Knoxville Craft Beer Week (KCBW) is upon us again – from May 18th through the 26th. It is wild to think that KCBW has been around since 2012 with each year better than the last. We continue to add great beer and great events. Maybe it’s just me but I think the people […]

Starr Hill Brewery | Say It Ain’t Sour

4 May 2019 by , 1 Comment

Well, our friends up in Charlottesville are at it again. This time they’ve created a 12 pack of mixed sours. I love a mixed 12 pack as much as the next guy but a 12 pack of sours made me pause. Three of the four are from the gose family, which I dig and the […]

NOLA Brewing Company | Hoppyright Infringement IIPA

26 March 2019 by , 1 Comment

We love a play on words and this beer certainly has that in spades. Turns out, once upon an iteration, a previous version of this beer was forced to change its name – and not by another brewery but by the widely popular Godzilla franchise – go figure! Times change, and so do beer recipes. […]

It’s not often that I come back to a beer that I know I’ve reviewed before. However, this is a beer that always makes me smile when I see it and I’m curious to compare notes to when I had this beer a few years back. So, after I finish drafting this post, I’m going […]
