Blackstone Brewery Beer Comes to Knoxville & The Casual Pint
Apr 13, 2012
Blackstone Brewery is here boys & girls!
Hailing from our Nashville neighbors & brethren, Blackstone Brewery is one fine brewery. They've won multiple medals for their top three brews. Their website is still under development now, but we sneakily discovered that you can sneak preview here. If your conscience bothers you over peaking under their proverbial skirt, then click here and find much less information.
Get them while they last! They're new to Knoxville and only available in limited qualities. Stop into The Casual Pint now, while we still have them. Currently available in the bottle or by the pint or growler.
As for the brews themselves, here's a quick run-down:
Chaser Pale® - A German style ale called a Kölsh. A light bodied beer which has been brewed in Germany for hundreds of years. Their version includes German style hops from Washington state. This tasty beverage won awards in several contests, including the World Beer Cup.
Nut Brown Ale® - (how they registered Nut Brown Ale, I'll never know, but far be it from me to interfere with registered trademarks). Apparently this was their most popular brewmaster special and was brought back to life after having been discontinued, due to popular demand. It's presented as a classic British nut brown ale. Full bodied with distinctive hop aroma and flavor. Another placer at the World Beer Cup.
American Pale Ale (APA)® - Brewed after a style of beer originally created in California in the late 1980s, it uses a more neutral "American ale" yeast to allow the hops to come through. Late in the brewing process, they add American Cascade and Centennial hops to the kettle to preserve the floral and citrus aromas and flavors of the hops.
St. Charles Porter® - A traditional British style brown porter. According to Blackstone, this type of full bodied ale accounted for 80% of the beer sold in England in the 1800's. Yet one more World Beer cup winner.
