Howdy beer fans! It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s after Thanksgiving and the Christmas decorations are already up at my house. While the calendar still says it’s fall, it’s certainly feeling more like winter. Winter weather means winter beer. On deck today we have a fun one from Hexagon Brewing Company, Chocolate Jesus. This beer is […]

Howdy beer fans! This getting dark at 5:30 stuff is for the birds. I detest it. Going to work in the dark, coming home in the dark – it stinks. Fall is in full swing and much like spring, neither stick around that long in East Tennessee. The saving grace of the time change is […]

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 […]

Saw Works Brewing Company | Bourbon Barrel Double Chocolate Porter

21 February 2013 by , No Comments

B: there may not be a more important letter in the alphabet. The letter “B” is responsible for so many important things, beer being the obvious one but also bacon – dear to my heart, biscuit – who doesn’t love those? Bourbon – it needs no comment…I could keep going but let’s keep this clean […]

The Great Knoxville Porter-Off

26 November 2012 by , No Comments

I’ve lived in Knoxville for seven years now, and this Fall might have been the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.  The colors came earlier and stayed longer than almost any other year I can remember.  It’s late-November now, though, and we just lost the last browns and reds in the trees, and the sun seems […]

Howdy fellow snobs! If you weren’t at The Market @ Washington & High last night for the bi-weekly tasting well, you missed out. For those not in the know, $20 gets you dinner, two pints, 5 selected beers to taste and 10% off of everything in the store – yes, that’s a steal. You’ll note […]
