Barrel aged. You have our attention. Barrel aged beers may very well be our favorite category of beer. In this particular case we were first introduced to this beer during a Tri-Cities beer run in August. It was our first stop and not even noon yet and Michael Foster and Devin Rutledge of Depot Street […]

I remember well the first time I had this beer. I was in Blacksburg, Virginia on business with Andy Brantley. We were hunting beer and ended up at a place called Blacksburg Taphouse. I remember being so impressed with this beer that I not only ordered another but before we left Virginia, I had found […]

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 […]
