Reflections on the First Annual Tennessee Winter Beer Fest!

6 February 2012 by , 2 Comments

Hello fellow snobs – As many of you know, this past Saturday the first annual Tennessee Winter Beer Fest was held at the Laurel Valley Country Club in Townsend, TN. Let me begin my reflection simply with this; WOW! While it was a wet and chilly evening, it was warm and relaxing inside the Laurel Valley […]

Tennessee Winter Beer Fest – February 4th, 2012

2 January 2012 by , 17 Comments

Howdy fellow snobs! Hard to believe it’s already 2012! It’s that time of the year when it’s dark by 5:30 and the weather teases us by allowing us to wear a t-shirt one day and requiring a parka the next. This is also a quiet time of the year when it comes to beer-related festivals […]

Hello all! WHAT-A-WEEKEND! If you caught our post last weekend regarding all the festivities going on you already know that there were some serious craft beer activities in the surrounding area. First, I’d like to report that The Little River Beer Club had 60 people come out for their beer club potluck – that’s some […]

Hello fellow snobs! Fall is officially here and has brought along it’s crisp evenings and changing leaves. We’ve seen Oktoberfest beer hit the shelves as well as a fall favorite – pumpkin beer (actually sipping on a tasty pint of Marble City Brewing Company Spiced Pumpkin as I type). If you’ve been paying attention to the KBS […]

Marble City Brewing Company – GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION!

30 September 2011 by , 1 Comment

It all began late one night a few years ago. Mr. Johnathan Borsodi was heading home after a long day at work when suddenly a fierce storm hit. Visibility was near nothing as JB tried desperately to get his bearings in this terrible weather making rights and lefts seeming at random…but were they? He turned […]

22 September 2011 by , 4 Comments

Friends, Knoxvillians, fellow snobs, lend me your ears! For quite some time now we have followed our new local brewery, eagerly and frequently tried their brews and heard rumors of a tasting room that was forthcoming. As with any business of this nature, production was the primary priority but now, after months of work (we […]

Hello fellow snobs! If you follow our blog then you’re well aware that I often frequent the tastings that The Market @ Washington & High so awesomely put together. The one held this past Friday was nothing short of a blast – good food, good beer and good times! My apologies for my tardy post […]

American Craft Beer Week – Saturday, May 21st @ The Pizza Kitchen!

19 May 2011 by , No Comments

This may be one of the most eventful American Craft Beer Week’s for East Tennessee given what happened in the state legislature this week with SB1224 and it’s subsequent change. The good news is that things look very good for our brewers to be able to start producing high gravity beer. Not out of the […]

American Craft Beer Week – Day 2: Saying thanks to our legislators

17 May 2011 by , No Comments

Well, I didn’t anticipate American Craft Beer Week going quite like this but I have to say, for craft beer drinkers and brewers in Tennessee, today was a great day. SB1224 was changed from it’s original form to remove the “pilot” program and the 3 brewer limitation. Now while there are still some county provisions […]

16 May 2011 by , No Comments

Fellow snobs – if you’ve been paying attention to Facebook, the Twitterverse, Rate Beer, or a number of other places, you’re probably aware of what SB1224 is for ole TN. I did not think I’d start off American Craft Beer week by contacting my governor and state senator. What started out as a simple change […]
