Catawba Brewing Company | Peanut Better Jelly Time – Round 2

10 March 2019 by , 1 Comment

It’s not often that I come back to a beer that I know I’ve reviewed before. However, this is a beer that always makes me smile when I see it and I’m curious to compare notes to when I had this beer a few years back. So, after I finish drafting this post, I’m going […]

A Visit to Riverbend Malt House

11 November 2018 by , No Comments

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 […]

It’s no secret we’re a fan of Highland Brewing Company. We also greatly appreciate their efforts to raise the game withe each new beer they release. The beer we have on deck today, Southern Sixer IPA, is no different. First, a little background. Highland draws a lot of inspiration from the surrounding area. They are […]

Green Man Brewery | La Mas Negra

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 […]

Highland Lost Cove | American Pale Ale

I think I’m becoming less of a hop head. Did I really just type that out loud? There was a time when my beer fridge was packed with IPAs, imperial IPAs, a triple IPA or two, maybe even a black IPA…..not anymore, there are a few buried amongst Belgians, stouts, imperial stouts, sours, browns, saisons, […]

Howdy beer fans, Spring is in full force and summer is knocking on the door. It’s time for spring ales, summer lagers and, as I like to call ’em, dock beer!

Highland Brewing Company Wolfgang 1756 | Collaboration with Asheville Symphony Orchestra

12 March 2015 by , No Comments

I freely state I do not care for lagers. However, when it comes to lagers I keep finding myself saying “except” a lot. Perhaps I’m becoming more accepting of a wider array of beer styles or, perhaps, breweries that I trust and expect great things from keep sending hits over the fence. On deck tonight […]
