There was a recent post asking about the hype around Cold Mountain. “I don’t get it,” the poster inquired asking others to help fill in the blanks. There was nothing malicious about the inquiry. Simply, this release is different from what many of us may be used to. Cold Mountain is a great beer and […]

Cold, hot. Cold, hot. Is it winter or not?! Such is life in East Tennessee. I’ve heard people joke that if you don’t like the weather in Tennessee, just give it a few hours. Many of us know what that means! That said, it is winter time and there’s nothing quite like a winter ale […]

20 years of Cold Mountain. How awesome is that?! We get our fair share of Cold Mountain here in fabulous Knox-vegas but we know many make the trek to Highland each year for the release. Details on this year’s release below including a very special addition for the 20th anniversary, an Imperial Cold Mountain. Congrats […]

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 […]

As Thanksgiving is past, the holiday season is in full gear. Before we know it, winter will officially be here and with it, inviting fires in the evening, barren trees and the tease of a white Christmas. Winter also brings wonderful seasonal beers, my favorite. Usually winter warmers, stouts, porters and the like are fairly normal. On deck tonight […]

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 […]

I’ll never forget the first time I had this beer many years ago. Washington, DC in what is now the Bier Baron. I stopped by on a work trip and there it was, on tap. I’ve been in love ever since. Before Founders came in to Tennessee, Don and I sought this beer out anytime we […]

Howdy fellow snobs! I hope 2012 is treating you nicely thus far and that you’ve had several tasty beverages so far. It’s been a bit since I’ve been able to make a tasting at The Market @ Washington & High – looks like September according to my posts, even though that doesn’t seem right but hey, […]

Fuel Cafe Coffee Flavored Stout – brewed by Lakefront Brewery

6 January 2012 by , No Comments

Hello again fellow Snobs.  There is something about winter and stouts that just seems to work like peas and carrots, macaroni and cheese, guns and pickup trucks.  I find myself seeking them out more and more when the weather cools a bit.  Heading home the other day I made a quick stop to the Bearden […]
