Knox Beer Snobs

Sunspot Grand Opening and Saw Works Brewing Company Spring Seasonal

sunspot-logoHowdy Beer Fans,

If you haven’t already heard, Sunspot is moving from it’s current location on Cumberland Avenue to a spot just down the street – just by The Pilot, oh and guess what? Old College Inn is also reopening in it’s old spot, right next door to the new Sunspot – pretty cool, eh? So mark your calendars for Friday, March 1st at 5:30 for a big splash as we celebrate the new Sunspot and Drafts and Rafts with Saw Works Brewing Company!

What’s Drafts and Rafts? I’m glad you asked. With spring just around the corner, Saw Works has teamed up with USA Rafting for an evening of live music, games, prizes, give aways and wicked sweet brews. USA Rafting will be on hand to get you excited for that spring weather and time on the water while Saw Works will also be introducing their spring seasonal Hop Battle which is a nice little hopped up ale featuring Zythos and Warrior hops. Also on tap will be their Bourbon Barrel Double Chocolate Porter. If you dug this porter, you’ll really like it’s barrel aged brother. Want to know more about it? Check out our review of this stellar beer here. Head Brewer Dave Ohmer will also be onsite to discuss beer and his irrational love of all aquatic craft.


Now, while that’s all well and good, the new Sunspot is pretty sweet. First off, can you say 50 TAPS!!! That’s right, 40 total at the downstairs bar and another 10 upstairs – very cool. Oh, and upstairs – a rooftop deck! That’ll be pretty cool come spring. Also, the new Sunspot boasts a kitchen that is 700% larger* than the old one! So while they were cranking out some awesome food at the old location, they’ve got more room to spread out and continue the awesomeness that is Sunspot.

So join us on Friday, March 1st at 5:30 for an evening of celebration, great beer and enough rafting silliness to make you catch spring fever.

See you then! Cheers!

*this is a broad guess-timation. The old kitchen was so small you had to go outside to change your mind – and yet they did some pretty amazing things in there.
