If you weren’t aware, we are in the middle of Knoxville Craft Beer Week!  There are events happening all around town this week and the grand finale will be Knoxville Brewfest on Saturday June 16th at World’s Fair Park.  Elst will be participating for the first time and serving samples of some special recipes.  These have been turned up a notch or two exclusively for the festival. Here’s whats on the menu!

190 IBU IPA – Hops on Hops on Hops!  We almost lost track of the hop additions on this one.  Strong citrus aroma and flavor with a crisp bitter finish. A real face melter.

Chile Pepper Ale –  A double dose of peppers!  American Amber Ale with a healthy dose of roasted green chiles and dried red chiles (a true New Mexican Christmas!) added to the boil to deliver a strong fresh chile aroma, a punch of roasty chile flavor, and a spicy finish.

Milkshake Ale – A pale wheat beer with milk sugar and vanilla added to make a thick and creamy treat!

Abbey Dubbel – The dark and decadent flavor of our traditional Belgian Trappist style Dubbel.

Tickets for Brewfest can be purchased online, but we hear that it sells out every year. Get them while you can!
