Valley River Brewery and Eatery by June IPA

Phil B. is drinking a June IPA by Valley River Brewery and Eatery at The Parsons Pub

Very mild, not a lot of hop bite, but for antown of this size with two microbreweries, I'll take it with a smile.

Brewery Ommegang by Rosetta

Phil B. is drinking a Rosetta by Brewery Ommegang

I like the occasional fruit ale, particularly when the pickins are slim in the back of the fridge. Nice cherry flavor w/just a hint of ale.

These folks make Nashville's best IPA's. This is a "West Coast Style" -- cloudy, lots of grapefruit, & nice body. Enjoy w/a big steak salad.

Nice flavor for a cream ale...not too hoppy, and with a nice smooth finish. Enjoy one with a big ole baked tater.

Brewery Ommegang by Three Philosophers

Phil B. is drinking a Three Philosophers by Brewery Ommegang

Lots of natural bourbon notes arising from the Belgian yeast make this a nice pairing with a big bowl of spaghetti carbonara.

Tennessee Brew Works by 1927

Phil B. is drinking a 1927 by Tennessee Brew Works

Too heavy on the grapefruit notes to be what I'd call perfect, but still of exceptional quality, enjoy 1 w/a pork loin just off the grill.

Jackalope Brewing Company by Great Horned Owl

Phil B. is drinking a Great Horned Owl by Jackalope Brewing Company at Jackalope Brewing Company

Dark in color yet mild in flavor, but still with enough caramel and malty grain to give it a nice bite, enjoy one while waiting on a mtg.

Devils Backbone Brewing Company by Catty Wompus

Phil B. is drinking a Catty Wompus by Devils Backbone Brewing Company

Slightly sour, which gives it the flavor of a Belgian ale, enjoy yours with a slice of Walmart pizza. Minus 1 point for being an InBev ale.

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams Cold Snap

From the "Beers You Find In the Back of the Fridge" series comes this example of a mild sweet ale. Enjoy yours when there's nothing on TV.

Southern Prohibition Brewing by Mississippi Fire Ant Imperial Red

Cloudy, pours to a nice head, and a wee bit of sweetness to balance out the hops. Enjoy yours with a hunk of salmon & rice.

Founders Brewing Co. by Centennial IPA

Phil B. is drinking a Centennial IPA by Founders Brewing Co.

Nicely done...not overly hoppy, but still enough to know that it's there, plus great body means this pairs well with chicken thighs & rice.

Bearded Iris Brewing by Scatterbrain

Phil B. is drinking a Scatterbrain by Bearded Iris Brewing at Husk

Maybe Nashville's best ale, this cloudy IPA has a ton of flavor & body, & a smooth finish. The Bearded Iris folks know what they're doing.
