There is just something about this beer. Usually when friends go to North Carolina and ask if I want anything I’ll reply broadly and say, “anything from X brewery” or tell them to just get me whatever they are getting. This beer though, before we saw it in the land of orange, I would request […]

It’s the end of January, 64 degrees and I’ve spent the entire afternoon outside. If there was a day that could cause spring fever, it’s today. Fortunately, I had a few other options in the beer fridge that weren’t stouts or winter warmers. The next seasonal from Highland Brewing Company is on deck tonight. Saw-Whet […]

It’s hard to believe that this is the 5th Tennessee Winter Beer Festival (TNWBF)! Wow, how time flies. We’ve had the privileged of being involved with the TNWBF since it’s inception, which, oddly enough, started with Mike Adams, formally of The Market in Maryville, simply stating that he wanted to do a beer festival. So […]

We received the press release below from Green Man the other day. While we pass on many press releases, not long ago I was able to try last year’s La Mas Negra and was pretty impressed. This is a great beer with a nice balance of sweet and spice. It’d pair well with pulled pork […]

If you had blindfolded me, allowed me to smell, taste, then asked me to name the brewery I would have rattled off a half dozen west coast brewery names and maybe even one from Florida. Head Brewer Hollie Stephenson of Highland Brewing Company is reaching back to her west coast brewing roots with this West […]

As Thanksgiving is past, the holiday season is in full gear. Before we know it, winter will officially be here and with it, inviting fires in the evening, barren trees and the tease of a white Christmas. Winter also brings wonderful seasonal beers, my favorite. Usually winter warmers, stouts, porters and the like are fairly normal. On deck tonight […]

It’s that wonderful time of the year when we begin seeing the winter seasonal beer; our favorite beer season. Dark, malty, sweet, spicy – so many awesome flavors to pair with everything from pre-dinner cheese to the last course of dessert. Tasty. Up on deck this evening is another fun beer from our friends at […]

It’s no secret that we’re partial to stouts here at Knox Beer Snobs. Add in words like “double” and “chocolate,” you’ve got our attention. Back in July Highland Brewing Company debuted their Warrior Series and we were pretty impressed. The Warrior Series is meant to be a series that allows the talented brewing team at […]
