Howdy snobs! Probably one of the best parts of having KnoxBeerSnobs is the people we get to meet.

Howdy beer fans, Thought I’d screech in at the almost last minute with a post on an Oktoberfest beer that I’ve been meaning to write about for oh, say a month. Yeah, that’s right, I forgot about this one. Perhaps it was because it was buried behind other equally tasty brews or I was distracted […]

A visit with the guys at Tennessee Brew Works

“Is this the place?” I asked my wife as we pulled up to the unassuming white building on Ewing Avenue not but a few blocks from the new Nashville Convention Center. The numbers ’809′ have been spray painted on the front of the building in a few places and the tell tale signs of new […]
