Kings Bluff Brewery is located in the heart of Clarksville, Tennessee, just 50 miles northwest of Nashville. Clarksville has a very strong military culture due to the nearby Fort Campbell military base, and Austin Peay State University brings some college town vibes to certain areas of the city, but Clarksville isn’t typically known for its craft beer scene.
San Francisco-based Tate Huffard is an avid outdoorsman with a passion for craft beer. The two typically go hand-in-hand quite well – what better way to finish off a bike ride or a day on the slopes than stopping at a local brewery afterwards? However, over time, he noticed that the “question of a hangover” started to get in the way of the things he wanted to do.
For their first new beer release in five years, the old-school folks at Good People are jumping onto a new-school beer trend with Hazy Snake IPA.
Based in Birmingham, Alabama, Good People Brewing Co. prides themselves on brewing “the #1-selling IPA in Alabama for the last 10 years,” known simply as Good People IPA. Aside from this flagship, Good People distributes several other core brands throughout Alabama and Middle Tennessee, including their Snake Handler Double IPA, Muchacho Mexican-style Lager, Good People Pale Ale, and now, Hazy Snake IPA.
Southern Grist is all about southern hospitality, and with this new series, they’re making room at the table for a different type of beer drinker. They take a lot of pride in pushing the boundaries of beer, from massive stouts, thick fruited sours, over the top IPAs, and everything in between. But where do you go when you’ve explored so many possibilities?
Have you ever been so passionate about something that it’s all you can see? Well, at Bearded Iris, that passion is for hops, and with this beer, their tunnel vision fixated on the combination of El Dorado, Citra, and Mosaic in a way you might not expect.
Nowadays, the concept of differentiation in the craft beer industry typically means going to extremes — brewing the juiciest hazy IPA, the thickest fruited sour, or the strongest imperial stout. However, as the newest entrant to the Nashville beer scene, Fait la Force Brewing takes a step away from the ‘hype’ and instead focuses on a traditional style that doesn’t get as much attention – Belgian beers.
When we talk about flagship beers, it seems only natural to think of simpler, classic beer styles – an IPA, a lager, or maybe a wheat ale. However, TailGate Brewery decided to go a different route altogether – one of their most popular brews happens to be their Peanut Butter Milk Stout, and it’s not a small-batch seasonal beer either; they brew it year-round.
