Panther Creek Brews announced it will be canning Panther Scratch, its hoppy brown IPA, for wider distribution.
With the help of BriarScratch Brewing, Panther Creek is able to sell its beer to the masses, instead of at beer festivals.
According to BriarScratch, the collaboration came about around six years ago when its brewmaster came down to Murfreesboro from Cottontown, Tennessee, and brewed up a batch of a hoppy robust brown ale. They all liked it so much that they paired up again in 2017 to brew 90 gallons and now with a 270-gallon batch.
"We got one heck of a beer ready to go in a limited amount of both cans and kegs," BriarScratch said in a Facebook post.
Over the past few days, the Panther Creek boys – Jeremy Taylor (pictured above), JT Gowen and Melvin Stewart – have been delivering their IPA to stores across Murfreesboro.
A few places where you can pick it up are: Murfreesboro Wine and Spirits, Old Fort Liquor and Wine, Media Rerun, Jack Brown's Beer & Burger Joint, and Liquid Smoke.
Get it before it's gone.
Life is Brewing to move final beer to Boro
Another semi-local brew had big news.
Brewmaster Derrick Morse announced via Facebook that Life is Brewing is moving some of its production and taproom to Murfreesboro.
“The entire LIB team decided to move our sour beer production to Hop Springs to consolidate our efforts into the new Murfreesboro location. This means we’ll be closing the Mantra taproom in conjunction with moving all sour beer production to Hop Springs,” Morse said.
Now all Mantra Artisan Ales and LIB’s sour beers will be made at Hops Springs.
“MTSU and the fermentation science program have been and will continue to be a huge part of Life is Brewing,” Morse said.
Its former location at 216 Noah Drive in Franklin will be taken over by Mill Creek Brewing.
“We’ve always had a good relationship and when it came time to find a solution, we reached out to the Mill Creek folks. Chris Goings and his team came in and it was a quick and easy decision to have the other Williamson County production brewery take over the space,” Morse said.
It’s not beer but, CBD sure is relaxing.
And Half Hill Farm, owned and operated by Grantham and his husband Vince Oropesa, opened the third location of their Wellness Emporium in Murfreesboro where they sell kombucha, extracts and CBD.
Half Hill Farm makes and bottles kombucha, botanical extracts, apple cider vinegar tonics, tinctures, teas and more from its production facility on High Street in Woodbury.
In addition to the new location is 2136 Middle Tennessee Blvd., Grantham and Oropesa operate emporiums in Jackson, Woodbury and Bell Buckle.
