Pretentious Beer Co | Hopetimism

Well gang, earlier today the world learned that the 2021 Tennessee Winter Beer Fest was canceled. Being as we’re a part of that board, I can tell you that it was not taken lightly by the group. We’re certainly living through some challenging times. However, those we surround ourselves make all the difference. We’ve got an incr ...

Small Brewery Sunday – November 29th

Hey gang, Happy Thanksgiving! Wow, what a year. I know we’re all feeling it as I’m sure holiday plans are different than years past. However, I hope everyone can raise a glass and reflect on what you are thankful for. Speaking of thankful, a few weeks back the Brewer’s Association announced this year’s Small Brew ...

Alliance Brewing Company | Czech Pilsner

Howdy beer fans! While things are certainly still weird right now, I have tried to make an effort on the weekends to stop by 2-3 local spots and grab beer for the week. This has been fun as I usually run into a few of y’all, we catch up for a minute – in real life – and then I have some fun local beer to enjoy throughout th ...

Time to Rally – Buy Local, Drink Local

It has been roughly three months since I’ve written anything on KnoxBeerSnobs. Not long ago I heard a friend, on a conference call, say that it’s okay to say that you’re not okay. Perhaps I’ve been stuck in that “not okay” place. Let’s be honest, this suspended reality is tough, it’s different and ...

Blackhorse Brewery | Lager

We all like pleasant surprises. It doesn’t seem like all that long ago that I wouldn’t give a lager a second glance. Then, a number of lagers from craft breweries that I knew and trusted entered the market. Before I knew it, there were multiple lagers sitting among the IPAs, stouts and saisons in the old beer fridge. While a cream a ...

Monday Night Brewing | Lay Low IPA

I’ll readily admit that I pay attention to what I’m consuming. That’s not to say I won’t eat a burger, pizza or drink some really good beer. However, I regularly work out six times a week, and watch what I eat. There was a point in time I was a much bigger guy than I am now. I have no intention to return to that state. M ...

Albright Grove Brewing Co | Mountain Laurel India Pale Lager

Howdy beer friends, It has come to my attention that there are those of you out there that haven’t been to Albright Grove Brewing Company yet. You’re missing out – really, you are. I’ve been able to swing by several times now and there’s always something new and fun on the board. It’s also just a really co ...

Starr Hill Brewery | Box of Chocolates 2019

We’re no stranger to the mixed 12 packs that our friends at Starr Hill Brewery regularly assemble. There are very few that are disappointing and, what I love is that there are multiple different beers to check out. In this case, we have the same base beer going in a couple of different directions. You may recall we reviewed the 2017 Box o ...

Blackberry Farm Brewery and Almanac Beer Company | Meeting Place

One of the many things I love about our friends at Blackberry Farm Brewery is their willingness to create fun new things with others. This is a group of individuals who will challenge their own notions around beer as they reach out to some of the best and brightest breweries in an effort to create a joyous experience not only in the process of ...

Thanks, Giving, Peace and Beer

He was a little guy. Three years old maybe. His father held his little sister while the three peered into the cooler at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in Mills River, NC. While he was small, his smile was large and he patiently stood waiting for his father to make a selection. As I approached, I couldn’t help but ask him, “What shoul ...
