COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

The Asheville area is a brewing hotspot nestled in the mountains of North Carolina. Tater Ridge was brewed by something of a craft beer super group made up of members of the Asheville Brewers Alliance. We’re fortunate to call these passionate and talented brewers our neighbors, and we hope this unique ale will be the first of many collaborations to come.

We’ve made plenty of new friends in the nearly 30-strong Asheville Brewers Alliance (ABA) since we started brewing in North Carolina. Two of whom—John Stuart of Green Man Brewery and Luke Dickinson of Wicked Weed Brewing—led this collaboration recipe and work tirelessly to bring creativity and a deep-seated love of locally made craft beer to the Appalachian Mountains.

Fritz123 (1145) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Beer Camp 12 pack from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter at home. Solid dark amber pour with nice one finger head. Some mild lacing. Aroma of bread, cereal, pumpkin and booze with barrel. The taste was bready, grains, orange and yellow squash, and that boozy barrel scotch ale flavor. Medium body, dry finish. Good beer overall.

RRistow12 (315) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark ruby that is slightly hazy with off white head. Sweet aroma with caramel or earthy/spicey notes. Taste is not like typical scotch ale. Not as malty sweet or heavy. I do taste a little sweet potatoe but would never recognize it without knowing beforehand. Some caramel and toffee flavors with some herbal/spices noticed. Interesting beer. Definitely not like a scotch all but good beer none the less. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mahogany to dark copper body with a sparse tan head. Aromas of caramel malts, brown sugar, a touch of spice. A tad sweet, finishing with a sharp hop bite. No easily discernible yam flavor, though I can see it a bit since I’m seeking it. Whatever.
