Update May 26th, 2023.
I left the craft beer world behind in May of 2022. It turns out Aaron of Crafty Bastard is a giant piece of unethical shit. I won’t go in to it, but I wouldn’t return to the world of beer for all the money I could have. fuck it. I don’t even drink much beer now a days. Honestly, if all the craft breweries in the world went out of business I would be happy with Guinness and Coors Banquet the rest of my life.
There are so many unethical brewery owners. Especially in Knoxville. There are breweries I absolutely refuse to visit or support with my money.
Also, what the hell craft beer? We don’t need a pickle barrel aged east coast ipa with fruit loops. I swear the art of brewing is dead. Brewers will put anything in beer now to make it taste like Saturday morning cereal milk to appeal to zoomers who will never know the struggle of finding a good beer at the store. Most gas stations now have many great options.
Fuck your pastry stout, can you even lager bro?
Anyway, the only brewery in Knoxville I have love for and hang out at is Alliance Brewery on the southside. You can usually find me there Saturday nights before my radio show.
Anyway, I’m out. I’ll probably let my domain name expire this year because I am so over the industry and the beer scene.
Doubtful I’ll bother to update again. Check back in a couple of years.
