Moccasin Bend Brewing Company schedules tours to showcase how the brewery distills life's finer things into consumable forms of handcrafted microbrews. The tour begins with an overview of the brewing floor and how beer mash is made, which usually involves interrogating a monster for the secrets of his dance moves. The basic tour differs from the deluxe tour once the brew crew reaches the tasting room, a sudsy libation station that serves up four samples (basic tour) or eight samples (deluxe tour) of the brewery's current collection of microbrews, which changes based on the seasons and the Oracle of Delphi's intoxication level.
Located at the foot of Lookout Mountain, the brewery is housed in a historic warehouse that contributes vintage charm to the tour with massive cedar timbers and archaic walls made with granite stones, mortar, and the chewed bubble gum of past brew masters.
Moccasin Bend Brewing Company
While working on inventive lagers and ales as members of the Barley Mob Brewers home-brewing club, Chris Hunt and Duncan Guy had an epiphany: we need to share this stuff with the public. So, in 2006, they teamed up with award-winning brewer Courtney Tyvand to start Moccasin Bend Brewing Company.
Today, they brew about 10 beers at any given time. Their menu could include an Irish red prepped with American hops and a pale ale made with juniper berries one day, or their signature smoked porter the next. No matter what the beer, creativity remains integral to the production process, and the brewers often add culinary twists such as watermelon or coconut juice to surprise palates that are used to tasting only cotton balls. All the magic happens inside a building which was built in 1952 as the first holiday inn in the area.
