It has been a few years now since I last wrote about our friends at Calfkiller, and not a second to soon. I am happy to say we still have a great relationship with the best small brewery in Tennessee. It is such a pleasure pouring one of their beers for a guest who has never had the Calfkiller experience. The compliments come quickly and continue through the second beer without fail. Being able to serve our food and drink with that kind of confidence is what we aim to do, day in and day out.
After watching Dave and Don and their hard working crew succeed at producing what they love and growing it into a sustainable business, you just get that feeling that you are witnessing history in the making. Calfkiller beer has gone from being a novelty draft we started serving a few years ago to a household name and our best selling beer by a long shot. I am still amazed by the number of folks who arrive from all over the state, recognize and ask for it with an enthusiasm only equaled from children on Christmas morning.
My continued enthusiasm for Calfkiller will come to a head (pun intended) on Saturday, August 9th at Evins Mill! I am proud and excited to announce yet another Calfkiller Tasting Dinner. The menu is in the works and will feature, as always, many Calfkiller tainted or inspired items, as well as Evins Mill produce and many other local Tennessee products. Dave, Don and hopefully their better halves will be here sampling their latest wares as well as their tried and true. This event has grown in popularity over the years and space is limited, so make sure not to get cut off (pun intended, again), and make your reservations now. We will see you soon, Cheers!
