The label states that this beer is loaded with notes of mango, passion fruit and pineapple with minimal bitterness, let’s check it out. This beer pours clear with a gold hue, a nice thick head that still sticks around across the surface of the glass as ...

MadTree Brewing Company in East TN

Well gang, I gotta stay, I’m pretty stoked about this one. A few weeks ago I ran up to Cincinnati with my fellow beer judge, Andy to judge a homebrew competition. We left the day prior to the competition and drove straight to Madtree. Thinking that we might have beaten the after work rush as we pulled in the parking lot at 5pm, boy were w ...

Hexagon Brewing Company | Carl’s Dunkel

One thing I love about our craft beer culture is that we’re branching out. No longer are pale ales, IPAs, ambers and porters the norm but instead we’re seeing a resurgence of styles such as German Lagers, Belgians and all but defunct historical styles like gose. It makes checking out the boards at breweries and craft beer bars a lit ...

The Pretentious Beer Company | Two Legged Snake

A remarkable thing recently occurred; Pretentious Beer Company began brewing its own beer. Perhaps it isn’t the act of brewing that’s so remarkable but instead that the glass and the beer you see in this picture were both made within a mere feet of one another. How many places are there where both the vessel and the liquid are made ...

The Pretentious Beer Company Grand Re-Opening – January 20th!

It goes without saying that the local beer community has been nothing short of thrilled as we’ve watched Matthew Cummings Pretentious Glass Company and then Pretentious Beer Company spin up. Now, with a brew house in place and beer in the tanks, the initial vision is complete. Where else can you go and drink a beer out of a glass that wer ...

Abridged Beer Company | Downstairs

It’s cold. Fortunately a warm-ish front appears to be on the horizon. That said, it’s always fun to build a fire and open up a big, malty, sweet beer and just hang out. Fortunately our friend at Abridged Beer Company just added a crowler machine to their arsenal of fermentation, so here we are. On deck today we have Downstairs a Bel ...

Starr Hill | Box of Chocolates Stout Pack

Chores are done. I have no where else to be today. I just opened 4 beers. The Mrs. has been alerted that her assistance is needed. She’s the resident stout-spert and I can’t do 4 beers all by myself. These are 4 incredible beers. Let’s be honest, variants are fun. Starr Hill does variants with some regularity and has done a gr ...
