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 […]

Congrats to Smoky Mountain on their 20th anniversary! It’s pretty wild to think that these guys have been brewing beer in East Tennessee since 1996.

There is a chill in the air. The leaves are colorful, crisp and basically totally covering my yard now.  I have to say this is my favorite season by far. People seem to relax more, chill out, hit a patio and hang out with friends and great beers. Take a look around this great city […]
