Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey

Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey On a Summer day in 2006, Andy and Charlie Nelson were visiting a butcher shop in Greenbrier, TN with their dad Bill. One thing led to another, and soon the three found themselves in the office of the local historical society gazing upon two perfectly preserved bottles of their great-great-great…

Colonel E. H. Taylor Single Barrel

When Autumn rolls around, and the temps cool down, I find myself thinking about bourbon when I want an adult beverage. Actually, I’m prone to have a sip of bourbon any time of year, but it’s especially enjoyable during the cooler seasons. About a year or so ago, a buddy suggested I try Colonel Taylor…

Tennessee Beer Festival

A few years ago, I participated in a nine-month leadership training program that began with an overnight retreat on Monteagle Mountain.

Beginning with a randomly…
