Well, after much ado, I was able to obtain tickets to the Tennessee Winter Beer Fest in Townsend. Woohoo! We popped into The Casual Pint Friday after work to pick them up.
While sitting at the bar discussing the upcoming event I saw Flat 12 Bierworks Pogue’s Run Porter on the beer list. I decided to give it a try and am so glad I did! It was very nice. It had a roasted malt flavor with hints of bitter dark chocolate and coffee! In other words, it was a great beer! For a dino that only drank Pale Ale and IPA style beers for a long time, I sure am loving the Porters and Stouts these days.
The sad part of this story is that I did not get to attend the Beer Fest. There was a family emergency and I had to go out of town unexpectedly on Saturday morning. The emergency wasn’t as bad as we thought so that part turned out okay. My friend Katie found someone else to take our tickets so that part turned out okay as well. It just left a sad little dino missing out on what I’m sure was a great time with some good beer. Oh well, there’s always next year.
