It’s that wonderful time of the year when we begin seeing the winter seasonal beer; our favorite beer season. Dark, malty, sweet, spicy – so many awesome flavors to pair with everything from pre-dinner cheese to the last course of dessert. Tasty. Up on deck this evening is another fun beer from our friends at […]

There’s a style we don’t see too often; Doppelbock. First things first, this style is a lager and it hails from Germany, as the “bock” in it’s name would suggest. This type of beer is known to be very malty with an ABV begining above 7.0%. “Doppel” litterally means “double” so it’s meant to be […]

In celebration of Starr Hill’s 16th Anniversary Brewmaster Robbie O’Cain put together this beauty; Hopfetti Triple IPA. While the anniversary was technically last month, I’ve sat on this beer until Beer Snob Don and I could sit down and enjoy it together. Maybe I should’ve kept it to myself…. This beer has a great golden color […]

Finally, it’s fall. Seems the pumpkin beers come out earlier and earlier each year as the seasons begin to blur. Perhaps we’re more sensitive to the fall seasonal lineup as deep down we’re not ready to give up summer. Summer slips away though as the leaves change, football begins and before we know it, the […]

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 […]

Why do I love being a KnoxBeerSnob?  The best part is the friends we have made along the way especially when they send you beer, you get to taste said beer and do a write-up for you folks.  Star Hill Brewing became one of those great friends.  One day this little beauty arrived in Knoxville […]

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 […]

BBQ, sunshine, the lake, lawn mowers – all things I think of when I think of summer. Belgian beers still seem new to me even though I’ve been drinking them quite regularly for several years now. For some reason whenever I see the words “Belgian” and “pale ale” together I take pause as it seems, […]

My first experience with Starr Hill was several years ago. For those of you that remember the Pizza Kitchen on Northshore, I’ll never forget the Starr Hill sticker that was forever emblazoned on one of those smoker’s ash tray towers out front. I drank many a Starr Hill at the old PK before Starr Hill […]
