Several seasonal beers are on the shelves, including Octoberfests and Pumpkin Beers. One of my favorite pumpkin beers is Schlafly Pumpkin Ale. It is available at most liquor stores with a high gravity beer section.If you have not tried it, you won't be disappointed (unless you hate pumpkin spices)
Cool Springs Brewery is now open. I tried to stop by for a late lunch and they were about to closed for the afternoon. I am not sure why, but they were getting ready to install a new sign. Perhaps that had something to do with it. I left disappointed as I was looking forward to trying their beers and pizza. I am not sure when I will be on that side of town again, but I will report back when I do. If any of you have been there, feel free to post your thoughts in the comments section.
Wine Down Main Street in Franklin is fast approaching. The tasting will be held November 6th from 7 to 10pm. Don't let the event title fool you, they are going to feature high gravity beers tasting according the release:
"In addition to hundreds of wine selections available for tasting, organizers have announced a new High Gravity Beer Section that will be located at Landmark Booksellers and Cadence Bank during the event. There will be approximately 15 to 20 High Gravity Beers to taste, including brands such as: Stone, Dogfish Head, Rogue, Ommegang, Duval and more."
My hat is off to the organizers for understanding that beer is just as sophisticated as wine. Advance tickets are available online or on the Boys & Girls Club website
