I participate in several in online beer communities, and there is a beer aficiando in Knoxville that digs up and posts all kinds of Tennessee beer news. Let's refer to him as Lithy. I offered him guest permissions for the blog and I am waiting to hear back. In the meantime, I am free to repost anything he shares in the forums.
I have run into the Blackstone Brewery owner at a few local beer tastings, so I knew something was on the horizon. Well it's now official. Expect Blackstone to be bottling and kegging at their new facility in early 2011. More info can be found in this Nashville Business Journal article. This is great news and yet more growth for the Nashville Craft Beer Scene. Thanks for the official scoop Lithy!
