    Saw this today...great to have another solid brand coming to Nashville.

    I haven't necessarily been crazy about some of their stuff that I have tried (Creme Brulee and Jahva to name a couple) but look forward to being able to try some things from them that I haven't yet and happy to get Pumking (even though I think Schlafly still rules the pumpkin ales!)

    I've always been more impressed by their beers on tap, so I hope this means a consistent supply of kegs as well.

    This is HUGE in my opinion. I've been to the brewery, I love these guys. Choklat and Pumking are two of my absolute favorites. Oat is definitely solid as well.

    Now Creme Brulee...well...that may be the worst beer I've ever had except Cave Creek Chili Beer. However....I like to look at that as an outlier. :p

    Congrats, have you guys seen laginitas bottles show up anywhere yet?

    That would be a no. So between ST, Lagunitas and Goose Island...should be an interesting fall here in Nashville. Just hoping it all comes through.

    Been in FL for the last week and have picked up various ST offerings including Pumking. Very over-rated. What TN needs is Cigar City!

    I couldn't agree more! Like I said, I haven't been crazy about the ST stuff that I have had and Pumking is "ok." Good Gourd is awesome... Up there w Schlafly for me.

    Talked with an ST rep about a month or so ago, according to him, it'll be here in Chattanooga first quarter next year. At the time, the distributors were courting with ST--I believe Bud picked them up. Bud Chattanooga doesn't have their liquor license(due to where their warehouse/office is located). So I'm expecting them to move, hopefully by the end of the year.

    Sorry for the hijack.

    And hopefully before GI starts shipping Bourbon County to Tennessee...

    I'm not holding my breath on that one, unless they pick up an allotment and just hold it somewhere offsite(if they're even allowed to do that). One Bud rep did say that Goose Island will be arriving in Chattanooga in December; so I guess that will give us 312, Honker's, etc.

    Pumking is "rumored" to be hitting the shelves by Friday at MidTown. Something like 150 cases in the state, I believe. Didn't know about Goose Island coming, that will be nice. No sign of Lagunitas yet, although a couple places have it on tap from what I have been told.

    And Flying Saucer has Schlafly Pumpkin on tap incase anyone was looking to try a glass.

    I was mistaken earlier in the thread. A Carter rep just told me that ST signed on with them within the past day or so. Carter is killing it lately. Early January is the expected arrival of ST in Chattanooga.

    Posted on ST facebook page couple hours ago... Now lets just hope that 2xIPA doesn't sit around any longer and they sent us a really fresh batch!

    I picked up an Unearthly and a Pumking. Glad to have them here. Have to show my support. Biggest "get" we've had in years.

    Picked up some Pumking last night at MidTown. Glad to see they had sixers in stock, hope we get the new 2XMAS this winter.

    Sounds like the Creme Brulee from 2011 aged well. I have a few in the cellar to see what happens.
