B-double E- double R – U- N!

If you did a search for “beer run Nashville” a few years ago, you’d bring up all the Garth Brooks-vs.-Todd Snider controversy over who wrote the song of the same name (Todd Snider’s original is much better).  But recently, there’s been a surge in popularity of another type of “beer run”: getting up on a bright Saturday morning, running a few miles, and enjoying a cold brew with friends at the finish (or even during the run!)  Yazoo Brewing has been organizing “Barely a 4K” Beer Runs across the South the past year with a growing group of runners at each one.  Our most recent 4K had runners exploring a route that included the historic Nashville City Cemetery and Fort Negley, and ending with a celebratory lap around the infield at the Sound’s Greer Stadium and a cold Yazoo from the concession stand.  Whether you’re a marathoner or just getting started, a beer run is a great way to reward yourself for the effort.  See you at the next one!

Getting started on another batch of Fortuitous

This time, we will start with another local distillery's used barrels - Collier and McKeel. Mike Williams of C&Mc bought our original 10 bbl brewhouse and leased it to Corsair in our old space. He is now setting up his own space in a building in west Nashville. He makes a killer whiskey, and I can't wait to see how this turns out!

#65 Hop Project bottled 5/3 - lots of Columbus, Horizon, and Cluster hops

The next version of Hop Project is being bottled today. We used a mix of Horizon, Columbus, and Cluster hops throughout, including dryhopping in the fermenter.   Cluster is an old hop, that was once the most widely used hop in American beer.  It has a distinctive aroma and flavor - reminds me of English candy for some reason.

This is the first try at a Hop Project recipe for Ryan, one of our newer brewers.  Stop by the taproom and see how he did, or look for this batch in your favorite store!
