January: New Brews & Other News

For starters, let's discuss some new high gravity arrivals- Victory Yakima Glory (Black IPA), Sweetwater Happy Ending (Imperial Stout), Rogue Double Mocha Porter (Imperial Porter) , Het Anker Lucifer Belgian Ale (Belgian Strong Ale), and Belgoo Magus Artisnal Belgian Ale (Belgian Strong Ale). Hey retailers- can you please break up the Belgian 4 packs? $20 is a little steep.However, I am glad to see more Belgian beers show up in Nashville. Oh yeah....this years batch of Sierra Nevada Bigfoot is here!!!!! Even better, it's only $12.99 a six pack and these age very nicely.

For you sour heads, I am told that a shipment of Lindeman's Cuvée René was released to J Barleycorn. We don't see many examples of Gueze in this market, and this one is worth a try. 
Land Rover of Nashville will be hosting a tasting event entitled Ale For The Trail, which is a fund raiser for the International Mountain Biking Association. A $25 donation gets you a custom glass and the opportunity to sample a handful of craft beers. More information on the event and registration can be found by clicking here

For those out in Franklin, you now have another place to drink craft beer (and boring macros if you so desire). Broadway Brewhouse has opened their fifth location at 1855 Galleria Blvd (old Texas Roadhouse location). Unlike their two locations downtown, it's non-smoking. I have not visited this location yet, but I did see the tap list and it's worth stopping by.
