According to my phone it’s 84 degrees. I sit in a rocking chair on the front porch of my parents house just north of Chattanooga. A lawnmower drones on in the distance, birds frolic and fight around the feeders about 20 feet to my right and just over the railing I see the lake. Less […]

Hello fellow snobs! Colder weather, darker beer. Thems the rules….or not, I like dark beers in hot weather too (like today oddly enough), light in cold weather, whatever. Stupid rules. The beer today I’ve been eyeing for a couple of weeks now. However, since I wanted to write about it, I’ve had to hold it […]

I remember well the first time I had this beer. I was in Blacksburg, Virginia on business with Andy Brantley. We were hunting beer and ended up at a place called Blacksburg Taphouse. I remember being so impressed with this beer that I not only ordered another but before we left Virginia, I had found […]

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 […]

It’s no secret that we’re partial to stouts here at Knox Beer Snobs. Add in words like “double” and “chocolate,” you’ve got our attention. Back in July Highland Brewing Company debuted their Warrior Series and we were pretty impressed. The Warrior Series is meant to be a series that allows the talented brewing team at […]

Chris Bible; Husband, Father, Professor, Engineer, Homebrewer (maybe not in that order)

26 December 2013 by , No Comments

Howdy snobs! Probably one of the best parts of having KnoxBeerSnobs is the people we get to meet. Around this time of year it’s especially awesome as people come through town visiting family and many of us gather to raise a pint…or many. Regardless, while craft beer may be our focus, it’s the people that […]

Terrapin White Chocolate Moo-Hoo

I’ve said this more times than I can count; I love winter seasonal beers! I was also thrilled a little over a year ago when Terrapin was able to re-enter the Tennessee market after the completion of a brewery expansion. At about this time last year I realized that craft beer in our fair town […]

New Belgium – Lips of Faith – Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout

4 November 2012 by , No Comments

Howdy fellow snobs – This past week we got a heads up from Knoxville’s very own beer guy, Jeremy Walker, that two new Lips of Faith bombers from New Belgium would be hitting the shelves by the end of the week. Yesterday I swung by McSrooge’s and picked them up. While I haven’t cracked the […]

Beer Tasting – The Market @ Washington & High – 2/25/2012

25 February 2012 by , 1 Comment

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 […]

Ratchet Brews – Spicy Cocoa Stout

18 January 2012 by , 1 Comment

Howdy fellow snobs – Hope this post finds you well. Recently we were given a few bottles of home brew from our fellow beer snob Jason Carpenter – who we all know as Ratchet. Ratchet has been brewing for quite some time and I’ve had one or two of his home brews before – always […]
