Congrats to Smoky Mountain on their 20th anniversary! It’s pretty wild to think that these guys have been brewing beer in East Tennessee since 1996. While many of us in the craft beer community sometimes overlook what Smoky Mountain has to offer, that’s changing in a huge way. There are certainly mainstays at Smoky Mountain […]

‘Tis the season of fall beers and while we’re technically past the Oktoberfest/festbier season, pumpkin beer abounds. Supposedly pumpkins were in short supply this year but judging by the shelves, that doesn’t seem to be the case. While pumpkin beer does have its place (i.e. Thanksgiving dinner and the 50% off shelf), it’s always great to […]

Things happen. Life. Kiddos. Work. Travel. Next thing you know a beer you intended to write about finds its way to the back of the beer fridge and when you see that the beer in question won an award at the Great American Beer Festival that you remember it is there, waiting patiently. The beer […]

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 […]
