It’s been a long time since I’ve updated this. It’s a combination of reasons. Mostly it was moving, followed by unpacking and settling in. I’ve been too busy to write. I’ve been too busy to go out much, or even drink beer. Life gets hectic sometimes. Much has happened in Knoxville in the last month since I’ve updated this site. Marble City hired a new brewer and changed it’s name to Saw Works Brewing. Suttree’s is closer to opening then ever and the Casual Pint is building a new site downtown. All this is already well known in the craft beer scene here in town, so there is no need for me to rehash it, just follow the links if you didn’t already know about any of these.
So I’ll just tell you what I’ve been up to with my brewing. Like I said, I moved closer to downtown. With this move I gained a whole basement to keep my beer, brewing supplies, kegerators and other stuff in. I was given another fridge to use how I see fit. I brewed a maibock right before I moved, and recently kegged it. Last weekend I brewed my toasted hemp seed pale ale in my new place. The next chance I get, I plan on brewing a wheat beer. I am hoping to brew a stout after that. With Suttree’s opening soon, my weekends are about to be full. Luckily I still have my planned Asheville Beer Week Vacation coming up at the end of this month.
It’s little over a month until Knoxville Brewfest. I am supposed to have a booth out there, but now I’m worried I will not have enough beer to bring. I know I’ll have a keg of my Rauchbier, my Maibock, Hemp seed ale, and hopefully some wheat beer. I wish I could have more, but the move really put a damper on my brewing. There just doesn’t seem like enough hours in a day to get everything accomplished.
Well that’s what’s been going on. I still don’t feel like my writing is inspired. I had to force myself to get this done. With everything going on, I feel a little burnt out. I am hoping this will pass.
Until next time,
