I keep a fair number of dark and sweet beers around as the Mrs enjoys them. Further, it’s kinda nice to be able to split a beer with her in the evenings when I don’t want to commit to a full beer before heading off to bed. Cedar Bluff Wine and Spirits posted on Instagram […]

December was a whirlwind. The fall was too for that matter. In and out of town, for both work and fun, events, parties, cookouts, bottle shares, there was a lot going on. In my travels I had the opportunity to reflect a bit and I think those reflections put 2019 into perspective – beer wise, […]

‘Tis the season for big, flavorful, warm, dark beers. If you’ve read the last few posts, while we don’t dig the short days, we do dig these winter seasonal beers – especially when they have been allowed to hibernate in a bourbon barrel. On deck today we have the Bourbon Barrel-Aged Drafty Kilt, a scotch […]

Howdy beer fans! It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s after Thanksgiving and the Christmas decorations are already up at my house.

Howdy beer fans! This getting dark at 5:30 stuff is for the birds. I detest it. Going to work in the dark, coming home in the dark – it stinks. Fall is in full swing and much like spring, neither stick around that long in East Tennessee. The saving grace of the time change is […]

I’ve noticed some 500ML bottles from Monday Night Brewing in Atlanta recently. This is such a great format. You can share it with a friend or two or get into it all by yourself on a Monday night. Typically, they aren’t too pricey either. Lastly, and most important, they typically have something pretty special inside […]

I had noticed the building a while back while traveling I-26 south in Asheville, NC. As we merged onto I-26 from I-40, if I looked quickly back to my right I could see the building with “Riverbend Malt House” written on the side. There’s no telling how many times I mentioned to my wife that […]

Collaborations are fun, especially when it’s a collaboration between two breweries that you know and love. In this case our friends at Abridged Beer Company and Alliance Brewing Company sat down together to make a New England Style IPA. As each brewery’s acronym is ABC, the Pythagorean Theorem came into the discussion (A2+B2=C2) and from […]
