Continue Drinking Locally

Posted By on Wed, Dec 23, 2009 at 8:17 AM

In Nashville beverage news, we have some new neighbors making splashes. Soon-to-be residents of Marathon Village, Corsair Artisan Spirits just got back from the World Beverage Competition in Geneva, Switzerland and are bringing home some hardware.

Competing with liquor products from over 30 countries worldwide, Corsair's Gin won a gold medal to follow up on their gold from the 2009 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Even more surprising was Corsair's platinum medal in Geneva for their experimental Rasputin Whiskey, distilled from a Russian Imperial Stout beer. We can't wait to have these guys as neighbors in Nashville and to try their new products.

Speaking of new neighbors, The Jubilee Craft Beer Company announced they will be creating a fun, novel beer brand that should hit store shelves and restaurants in the next month or so.

Founded by Music City native Mark Dunkerley, the Jubilee Craft Beer Company has a local twist to their mission. They plan to donate 50% of their profit to the Oasis Center to support their work with at-risk youth.

The flagship beer will be Jubilee Nut Brown Ale, and the company plans to offer seasonal beers beginning in late fall of 2010. The actual brewing of the beer will be contracted to Bluegrass Brewing Company in Louisville, at least during the start-up phase. Sam Adams and Pete's Wicked Ale are two examples of beer brands that started out with this contract brewer model and eventually grew into powerhouses. Here's wishing the same sort of success to Jubilee in the new year.
