The next time you join us for dinner at Dancing Bear Appalachian Bistro or drinks at Townsend’s only full bar, Bar at the Bear, consider asking your bartender to sample one of the delicious beverages brewed and bottled by our friends at the East Tennessee Brewery for Blackberry Farm, eight miles away from us in Walland TN.
The Bar at the Bear currently carries a Blackberry Farm Private Selection that includes the Blackberry Farm Belgium Abby Quad, the Blackberry Farm Brett 18 Sasion, and the light golden Blackberry Farm Tennessee Cream Ale.
BeerAdvocate described the Blackberry Farm Belgium Abby Quad (10% ABV) as, “a dark and robust Belgian Abbey style Quadrupel with notes of dark fruit, reminiscent of cherries or strawberries, and a rich maltiness.”
Ratebeer notes that the Blackberry Farm Brett 18 Sasion (7.5% ABV) is, “Farmhouse Ale fermented with brettanomyces and aged in red wine barrels for 18 months. Unlike the regular 2017 Brett Saison, this is 100% aged beer instead of a blend of fresh and aged, and 18 months instead of 12.” Users of the site rated it 3.56 out of 5.
The Tennessee Cream Ale is brewed with flaked corn and heirloom grits and fermented with a wild strain of native yeast, according to the brewery. This process is done for a delicately malty body with a hint of corn sweetness and a crisp, refreshing finish. The Blackberry Farm brewing program is guided by East Tennessee’s rich agricultural and culinary heritage.
In the past, Dancing Bear has also served other Blackberry Farm Stillwater Sensibility, a Belgian Saison, Abbey Brune, Blackberry Farm Coyote Tactics IPA, the Blackberry Farm Screaming Cock Pale Ale, the Blackberry Farm TN Times Pilsner, and Blackberry Seasonal Selections on draft.
