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 ...

Alliance Brewing Company | Flip Flop IPA

While I don’t get out to Alliance Brewing Company nearly as much as I’d like, what I love is that whenever I’m close to downtown I can stop in and get a crowler.

Maybe it’s some sort of innate hunter/gatherer mentality ingrained in our subconscious. Maybe it’s because we’ve been thirsty for so long in Knoxville. Many breweries passed us by for so long, goi ...

Brawny Beer Festival | December 10th, 1-5pm

Howdy beer fans, It’s that wonderful time of the year when porters, stouts and winter warmers become the norm as we begin to hunker down in these colder months. Nothing goes quite as well with a roaring fire than one of these darker and richer beers. We’re certainly no stranger to the style as we constantly find ourselves gravitatin ...

Alliance Brewing Company | Citra Blonde

I love crowlers. This beer has been sitting in my fridge for exactly a week and it poured with a great head and excellent aroma, as if they filled it today. While I’ve enjoyed growlers – and I still keep a few on hand – the fact that you can purge a can with CO2, as Alliance does, and keep all light out makes for a well preser ...
