We’re a big fan of collaboration beers, especially ones that benefit a local cause. On deck this evening we have a beer that benefits the Legacy Parks Foundation right here in fabulous Knox-vegas. What’s the Legacy Parks Foundation? The best way to describe it is to say that this group is about preservation and recreation. […]

It’s hard not to get excited about a beer with “Tennessee” right in the name. Tennessee Cream Ale from Blackberry Farm Brewery certainly embraces Tennessee as it is not only brewed here in east Tennessee but the yeast used is a native strain found on Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. Staying true to the “cream […]

Howdy fellow snobs! FALL! Football! Fall beer! I know many of us aren’t hot on the pumpkin beers that we start seeing in the summer BUT there are so many other great beers that accompany the fall season. I can also appreciate the fact that many breweries are looking to set themselves apart from the […]

Howdy friends, It is a great time for Tennessee beer! If that doesn’t want to make you say Yee Haw, I don’t know what will! Yee Haw Brewing Company in Johnson City, TN, came out of the gate hard and fast throwing the gauntlet down on 4 mainstay beers that were nothing short of dead on […]

It’s August. That means pumpkin beers are – or will be shortly – on the shelves across our fair state. While I can hold off on the pumpkin beer for a bit, it’s the Märzen style lagers I really look forward to. A couple years back I did a Märzen series which was a lot of […]

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy being in another state, seeing a Blackberry Farm Brewery bottle and be able to proudly exclaim, “that beer is brewed in my backyard!” While the brewery is a little further than my actual backyard, it’s not far and I thoroughly enjoy visiting my friends there from time to […]

Howdy friends, On deck tonight we have one of my favorite styles of beer; stout. In this case an oatmeal stout. While summer certainly isn’t stout weather, in my book stouts are a year-round beer and this one is no exception. First of all, if you haven’t visited Alliance Brewing Company yet you are doing […]

Highland Brewing Company | Mosaic Rye India Pale Lager

As a general rule, I’m a bit skeptical of the India Pale Lager (IPL) style. I find that they woo me in with wonderful scents and even some excellent first sips. Then, after about half the beer and probably 10 degrees of warmth, all of that is gone – or at least muted. Highland has […]

While this isn’t a beer review, it is a review and it is beer related, so it counts! I just finished The United States of Beer: A Freewheeling History of the All-American Drink by Dane Huckelbridge and while I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I began, now that I’m done I can say that […]
