Howdy beer friends! We’re no stranger to IPAs here at Knox Beer Snobs. For a period of time that’s about all I would drink. Bitter, sweet, citrus, pine, resin, tropical fruit – so much to experience. I get it though, there are those that get turned off by this style – too bitter, too “hoppy” […]

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 […]

20 years of Cold Mountain. How awesome is that?! We get our fair share of Cold Mountain here in fabulous Knox-vegas but we know many make the trek to Highland each year for the release. Details on this year’s release below including a very special addition for the 20th anniversary, an Imperial Cold Mountain. Congrats […]

Howdy beer fans! We get a fair amount of press releases – some relevant to us in East Tennessee, some not. How we got in a mailing list for purses is beyond me. That said, here’s one for a beer we always look forward to and we know many of you do too! So cheers […]

It’s August. That means pumpkin beers are – or will be shortly – on the shelves across our fair state. While I can hold off on the pumpkin beer for a bit, it’s the Märzen style lagers I really look forward to. A couple years back I did a Märzen series which was a lot of […]

Highland Brewing Company | Mosaic Rye India Pale Lager

As a general rule, I’m a bit skeptical of the India Pale Lager (IPL) style. I find that they woo me in with wonderful scents and even some excellent first sips. Then, after about half the beer and probably 10 degrees of warmth, all of that is gone – or at least muted. Highland has […]

When we started this blog over 5 years ago if you had asked me if I ever thought we’d be reviewing a pilsner from an American beer company I may have laughed at you. My, how things change – both in terms of the broad spectrum of beers I now enjoy and in terms of the high […]

Crazy. 2016 marks the 6th Hops for Hope that we have been a part of. We began Knox Beer Snobs in November of 2010 and while this blog has centered on beer, it has really been about the people that gravitate towards this awesome art. We have met so many great people as a result. It […]

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 […]

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 […]
