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 […]

Ho Ho Ho Fellow Snobs, It’s no surprise that Christmas is just around the corner. Our fellow friends in retail have been reminding us of that with decorative displays and copious amounts of decorations for sale since Labor Day weekend.

For beer geeks like you and me, we have the beer growler to help us transport tasty draft beer from one location to the next. Whether it be home brew, our favorite draft, or a hard to find beer from another city, the growler is a beer geek must have. The thing about growlers is, […]

If you’re not already aware, this Friday marks history in the making. It wasn’t that long ago that Knoxville experienced it’s first cask night at Woodruff Brewing Company by then brewmaster Dave Ohmer who has since moved over to Saw Works Brewing Company. The historical evidence is to the right – don’t worry, I’ve already […]

Saw Works Brewing Company – The Full Buzz

Art takes many forms. I’ll never forget watching in awe as a single man, armed with a Stihl chainsaw – much like my own – carved an eagle out of a piece of wood that I wouldn’t have given much thought to had I passed it in the woods. Saws have been implements of creation […]
