Just recently moved back home to Knoxville and so glad to see how the craft beer community has grown! I got my start in craft beer while living in Durham, NC, where I worked part-time at Fullsteam Brewery and was involved in NC Girl's Pint Out and a few "beer philanthropy" efforts. Hoping to start home brewing this winter.

Converting mediocre beer drinkers into beer snobs one by one! I will try anything once and it is rare that I buy a 6 pack of the same beer. I love trying new varieties and look forward to the day when Knoxville is a craft beer destination.

I am home brewer with a great view of downtown. I'm also a member of the Tennessee Valley Homebrewers, the American Homebrewers Association, and Knox Beer Crew. I am a beer tourist who travels as often as possible to Asheville, NC. I love all aspects of craft beer culture. I am always willing to let people try my homebrew and make trades.

I am always looking for new craft beers to try. The search never ends. Been drinking craft brews for about 15 years. Became a beer snob about 6 years ago.

New in East TN, originally from Nashville. My favorite style of beer is IPA. I love all craft beers and trying new beers. I am not much of a stout fan, but I definitely enjoy a well-crafted stout from time to time. I also enjoy the lighter styles of craft beers like amber or golden ales and lagers. I want to travel to Germany soon for the architecture and beer...but not necessarily in that order. Cheers!

I live in Atlanta, but still like to (humbly) consider myself one of the many pioneers of craft beer culture in Knoxville. Through Twitter and tastings, I've gotten to know the awesome craft beer people of my old hometown and always try to help arrange a badass beer gathering whenever I make it back. I'm not exactly sure what this group is or will become, but I certainly support the effort. And you guys all know where you can crash if you need a beer-buying trip to Atlanta. I'll gladly show you around and share some brews with you. Cheers.

My name is Jason, and I am a beeraholic! I am a whore for trying new brews. I am a total hophead, the hoppier the better!! Sours are what make my heart skip a beat though. Someday I would love to learn to brew myself and maybe open a small brewery.

I am also a life long Vols fan and never miss a home game. I am also a retro game collector, and might have a NES Game Room 'O' Doom.

I started drinking craft brews only about 3 months ago and I am really enjoying it. So far my tastes include almost anything that isn't really hoppy.

22. I attend The University of Tennessee and graduate December '12 with a degree in English: Creative Writing. I'm slightly obsessed with my puppy, Otto, he's a great pyrenees/golden retriever mix. Huge fan of the Nashville Predators and hockey in general.

I jumped on the beer train about a year and a half ago, and I haven't turned back. Just looking to explore various beers, I'll try anything, but so far I've never really been a fan of Pilsner beers.
