Brewery Showcase | Fait la Force Brewing

February 18, 2022 |

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.

TailGate Brewery | Peanut Butter Milk Stout

February 16, 2022 | 1

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.

Collaborations between bands and breweries are nothing new. Run the Jewels, for example, seem to agree to beer collabs as often as they agree to play a festival. From wacky creations that never should’ve left the brains of collaborators to killer creations that you wish would never run out, the spectrum of these projects are vast.

Fat Bottom Brewing | Knockout IPA

April 9, 2021 |

Flagship beers are the unsung heroes of a brewery. They’re the load-carrying backbone of a beer list. With every new, flashy, ridiculously-hopped IPA or adjunct loaded, melted ice cream cone passing as a stout, they’re also the first to be forgotten. Like a true workhorse, flagship beers do their job. They get packed in cases or filled in kegs to be shipped off to a sea of local grocery stores and faceless sports bars while getting snubbed by the cool kid, craft beer stores in town. Flagship beers may never get any taproom-exclusive hype, but they’re evergreen. They pay the bills, and keep the lights on.

Sour Series: Yazoo Brewing | Trio (Batch #2)

February 18, 2021 |

Brandon Jones is no stranger to barrel-aging and storytelling, using both his words and beer as the medium. Jones is a brewer, beer blender and self-proclaimed “funk wrangler” at Yazoo Brewing, one of the godfathers of the Nashville’s craft beer scene. When Brandon isn’t wrangling funk, he’s sharing recipes on his blog, EmbracetheFunk.com, where he talks about spontaneous fermentation, wild yeast and bacteria—all of what give wild ales their unique and “sour” profiles. On Embrace the Funk, Brandon states his modest goal of making the world of sour beers a bit more approachable.
