Hello, my name is Rob. I am 36 years old and I eat the same lunch that I ate in elementary school just about every day; peanut butter and jelly. I’m not ashamed, it’s awesome, it’s easy and it’s cheap. So as I sip on a beer holding the same name know this, I ate […]

Hello fellow snobs! Colder weather, darker beer. Thems the rules….or not, I like dark beers in hot weather too (like today oddly enough), light in cold weather, whatever. Stupid rules. The beer today I’ve been eyeing for a couple of weeks now. However, since I wanted to write about it, I’ve had to hold it […]

Howdy beer friends! We’re no stranger to IPAs here at Knox Beer Snobs. For a period of time that’s about all I would drink. Bitter, sweet, citrus, pine, resin, tropical fruit – so much to experience. I get it though, there are those that get turned off by this style – too bitter, too “hoppy” […]

Howdy friends in beer! I hope this post finds you well. On deck this evening I have a beer that I am very excited about. Lighter beers are not usually on my regular rotation, however, when I see a kölsch I will often give it a shot. That’s largely thanks to Adam Ingle at Alliance […]

Cold, hot. Cold, hot. Is it winter or not?! Such is life in East Tennessee. I’ve heard people joke that if you don’t like the weather in Tennessee, just give it a few hours. Many of us know what that means! That said, it is winter time and there’s nothing quite like a winter ale […]

It’s no secret we’re a fan of Highland Brewing Company. We also greatly appreciate their efforts to raise the game withe each new beer they release. The beer we have on deck today, Southern Sixer IPA, is no different. First, a little background. Highland draws a lot of inspiration from the surrounding area. They are […]

I had a moment of euphoria in Kroger last weekend. I went to peruse the beer section to see what impact our new TN laws had on the beer selection. If you’re not aware, as of January 1st “beer” in the state of Tennessee had changed from 6.25% to 10.1%. There was much rejoicing as […]

Howdy beer friends! If you’re like us, the spring fills up fast. Warm weather makes a nice friend and gets us all out of the house – which is great. However, there are always more opportunities than there are hours in the day so you have to make sure you maximize each opportunity! What better […]
