Sculpin spotted locally.

  • Last November Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ) purchased 19-year-old San Diego-based Ballast Point Brewing for a reported $1 billion. This month, the renowned beers started hitting Nashville shelves. I tasted their flagship Sculpin IPA and variants Grapefruit and Pineapple for the first time and they deserve the accolades. Pineapple Sculpin is my favorite.

Citrus enhanced IPAs.

  • New Belgium Citradelic and Dogfish Head Flesh & Blood succeed in twisting the hop with citrus a-peel. Both of these refreshingly bitter IPAs cut through southern heat and humidity better than a poplin suit.

Hopping the suburbs.

  • Here is a sensational flight of three high gravity IPAs that come with high ratings and plenty of fans. Surprisingly all three were found in the cooler priced as singles at nearby suburban Donelson Wine and Liquors. These IPAs each have big personalities, all have very hoppy architecture.

Tenn. can beer flight.
Refreshing summer IPAs.

Refreshing Tennessee IPAs in cans: Tailgate Grapefruit, Saw Works Rocky Hop and No Easy Day and Mill Creek Woodshed photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Thank you brewers for bringing your crafty wares to market in cans. They're a flash to open, they get ice cold fast, they're light to pack along with you, and they're the easiest container to recycle. These four refreshing Tennessee-made IPAs are out there in cans so don't hesitate to ice them down to accompany the summer heat.

Nashville IPAs.

Nashville IPAs - Black Abbey Five Points, Tennessee Brew Works Cutaway Rye, Yazoo Hop Perfect, and Fat Bottom Knock Out, photo by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • It sort of has a ring to it. The IPAs could be the next team in Nashville and now there are plenty of locally brewed players. I recently poured four readily available local IPAs to take a close-up look and taste side-by-side.
