Hey, spring is here! At least according to the calendar. We’ll probably get a few more low temps here and there but hopefully we’re headed into green landscapes and sunny skies! Sometimes a little daycation is in order to properly appreciate these elements. Looks like we’ve got something for that. Highland Brewing Company Daycation IPA. This […]

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 […]

I rolled into Asheville in December 1999 after leaving Clearwater, FL.  It was a bit of a culture shock due to the friendly people, the weather and the beer choices. Up until then, the best craft offering I had was a Samuel Adams so you can imagine what it was like for this beer-virgin in […]

EDITOR’S NOTE: this is a guest blog provided by  Foothills Marketing Director Ray Goodrich. Both his parents graduated from UT, so he’s OK. In Part 2, we pop a top and Snob Don tells it like it is.  Go ahead. Get Jaded. That’s what the label copy implores you to do on Jade IPA, one of […]

I was pretty excited when I heard Blackhorse Brewery had gotten a hold of fresh hops and were working towards a fresh hop beer. We’ve been very fortunate in that we have several hop farms in the area and in this particular case, Blackhorse Brewery worked with Kelly Ridge Farms in Meadowview, Virginia to get […]

Our friends at Alliance Brewing Company name their IPAs as each one is a bit different. Kinda like what Yazoo has done with Hop Project. The IPA on deck tonight though, wow… This beer pours a dark golden color, cloudy with a nice, long lasting head. It came via crowler – obviously – and it […]

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 […]

Howdy fellow snobs! Up today we have a rare dual post [alarm sounds go here]! Don and I are actually together, at the same time, reviewing the same beer much like in the days of pre-children. I had to fake a plumbing incident to get him over here but Don wasn’t too upset to find […]

The red and green label of Northern Lights is very familiar to me. While I was introduced to this beer at the long gone Pizza Kitchen, it has also stood as the only logical choice during many trips through the Ronald Reagan International Airport in Washington, DC. I’ve always thought of Northern Lights as a […]
