Huzzah! Knox Beer Week is here. There’s a lot going on this week and many things to choose from. We thought we’d take a minute to say THANK YOU to everyone involved in making this happen – brewers, distributors, bars, shops, stores and those that sit on the committee – well done. That said, we thought […]

It’s hard to believe that it has been almost a year since my wife and I met Christian Spears and Garr Schwartz as we got a sneak peak of the then under construction brewery.

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 […]
