For some Holiday Cheer you can't go wrong with Green Man's Holly King. This barrel aged holiday ale is perfect for a night by the fire with your loved ones. It pours with a bit of foam that dissipates and leaves a thin veil. It's medium bodied with medium carbonation a...

Firefly Music Festival has been on my bucket list

since its inception in 2012. This year I finally got the chance to attend and I am so happy I did. The festival itself was amazing, the lineup was phenomenal, and the beer was better than past festivals I’ve attended. On...

Located just far enough from the Strip is this offbeat brewery with lots of great brews. We drank a flight and tried a couple of other beers after and were unanimous in that everything that had was above average. Most breweries I go to have at least a couple average be...

This sour pours a gorgeous red raspberry color with light pink foam. There is a lot of fresh raspberry on the nose. Always good if you can decipher the synthetic from real flavors in the smell. This is a crisp and easy drinking sour with a bit of pucker to it without b...

This 6.5% IPA pours a nice amber color with a bit of foam that dissipates fairly quickly. Medium carbonation and body give this IPA a good amount of structure with a slight hoppy bitterness. The hops are definitely mild but balanced well with floral and citrus notes. S...

The time we've all been waiting for is finally upon us. Game of Thrones season 7 is here and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate then with an on theme beer from Brewery Ommegang. Seven Kingdoms is a hoppy wheat ale and at 6.9% it's the perfect beer to sip on...

I was so incredibly excited to be gifted a couple of bottles of this limited release from Wicked Weed. (Thanks Steve!) It pours a dark red, but looks similar to Coca-Cola in the glass. The nose is very reminiscent of maraschino cherries. This Barrel-Aged American sour...

Black Angel from WW is a black sour ale on tart cherries aged in bourbon barrels. I'll start this post off by saying this is one of my favorite beers. I remember the first time I tried it at Wicked Weed a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. A man at the bar aske...

This IPA from White Street is a very affordable and easy drinking option for any occasion. It pours a golden amber with a thick off-white head. It has a nice bit of hops, but is not over the top bitter. At 7.5% it’s low enough to be able to enjoy a couple, but high eno...

Green Man Brewery was the first beer I ever associated with Asheville. I remember being a teen eating cheese fries at Jack of the Wood watching all the “cool kids” drinking Green Man at the bar and thinking I’ll never be 21. (At 16 it felt so far away) Now I get upset...
