It’s hard to believe, the summer is winding down! The kids are back in school, we’re counting down the days until college football kickoff and fall weekends are starting to fill up. Where did the time go? This is also the time of the year that seasonal creep starts back up and pumpkin beers hit […]

I love crowlers. This beer has been sitting in my fridge for exactly a week and it poured with a great head and excellent aroma, as if they filled it today. While I’ve enjoyed growlers – and I still keep a few on hand – the fact that you can purge a can with CO2, […]

No doubt about it, summer is in full swing. As I type this I’m sitting on my back porch, under the umbrella as the Big Green Egg wafts pecan smoke in my direction. In just a few more hours it’ll be brisket time. Hard not to love summer. Our friends at Starr Hill have been […]

According to my phone it’s 84 degrees. I sit in a rocking chair on the front porch of my parents house just north of Chattanooga. A lawnmower drones on in the distance, birds frolic and fight around the feeders about 20 feet to my right and just over the railing I see the lake. Less […]
