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.

RRistow12 (314) - 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

12 oz bottle is part of beer camp. Pours a clear brown with lasting off white head. Aroma is sweet brown sugar and muted sweet potato. Flavor is same, with sweet potato mainly in the finish. Raisins and booze in the mix as well. Thin to medium bodied, syrupy, muted carbonation and sticky sweet finish.

Huhzubendah (2729) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 29, 2014
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.

shigadeyo (3092) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2014
The aroma exhibits a bit of cocoa and yeast along with some fruity maltiness. This beer pours a cloudy brown color and retains a decent khaki - colored head. the flavor has that same fruiy maltiness up front along with some dry dark roasted malt flavors followed by a kick of spicu and herbal hops. The bitternrss level seems a bit high for the style, but i guea rhats qhat everybody else likes now. The flavor seems muted at first, so I hope it improves as it warms. Average body and mouthfeel. As it stands from the first pass, this beer is just merely good and doesn’t stand out in my mind in any way. Seems more like an India Brown Ale...

Gachupines (959) - USA - DEC 23, 2014
Dark amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is mildly sweet, somewhat reminiscent of sweet potatoes. Flavor is sweet malt with very mild smokiness. Could use a little more body to fill it out. Wife: 3.6
