On deck today we have a new beer from our friends at Starr Hill Brewery. I thought it might be fun with a little charcuterie, so here we are. This beer is a golden ale, low in ABV at 4.9%, brewed with pilsner, caramel, honey malts and oats as well as one of my favorite […]

Hexagon Brewing Company | Carl’s Dunkel

One thing I love about our craft beer culture is that we’re branching out. No longer are pale ales, IPAs, ambers and porters the norm but instead we’re seeing a resurgence of styles such as German Lagers, Belgians and all but defunct historical styles like gose. It makes checking out the boards at breweries and […]

A remarkable thing recently occurred; Pretentious Beer Company began brewing its own beer. Perhaps it isn’t the act of brewing that’s so remarkable but instead that the glass and the beer you see in this picture were both made within a mere feet of one another. How many places are there where both the vessel […]

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. Now, with a brew house in place and beer in the tanks, the initial vision is complete. Where else can you go and drink a […]

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 […]

While I don’t get out to Alliance Brewing Company nearly as much as I’d like, what I love is that whenever I’m close to downtown I can stop in and get a crowler. Recently I grabbed a crowler of Flip Flop IPA. Let’s check it out. This beer pours with a wonderful thick head that […]

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

2 December 2017 by , 1 Comment

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 […]
