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.

Poured into Trappist tulip a dark UPS brown with tan head that receded into thin coating. Had curtain lace and a nice med body and low co2. Aroma was earthy and spice with roasted malts. Taste was the same with a nice sweetness. Being a sweet potato hater I was dreading trying this one. I was most surprised by this one out of the 12 pack. I loved the balance and was surprised by some of the comments here based, I guess, on the fact I enjoyed it very much. This is what makes the beer world so fun.

The was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours dark amber with a beige head an excellent lacing. Nose of roasted malts, sugar, and a hint of he sweet potato. Medium plus body. Flavor is malty with a lot of sugar, and small amount of hop showing. The finish is sweet. Kind of like a cross between Barley Wine and ESB. Nothing at all wrong with it and I keep looking for something else to appear but it never does..

This was good and gets points for creativity but since its billed as scottish ale I wasn’t overly satisfied. I was hoping, well, for a scotch ale but it didn’t come across that way to me, lacking the heartiness and some of the malt sweetness. Still, not a bad beer, drinkable and sort of interesting,

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper tinged brown with a large light tan head. Spicy malt and a touch of nutty sweetness on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet caramel and a hint of chocolate, smooth and warm with some alcohol peeking through. Warm malt and a touch of sweetness. Not sure if I would have noticed sweet potatoes blind, but looking for it I certainly get it. Slow finish with some more warm malt and a bit more sweetness. Very tasty.

jmm635 (887) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Pours crystal clear and copper in color with a thin white head. Aroma of strong caramel and light smoke. The sweet potatoes are there but not obvious, an appropriate level in my opinion. Nice, interesting beer.

Deep copper pour with creamy off white head. Large roasted malt and floral hop aroma. Large caramel malt with a nice finishing bitter. Good carbonation from another solid BC beer.

Bright hops, sweet malt, grass, and oil on the nose, like a fresh cut lawn. Pours a dark amber. Nice flavors of pine and a little smoke. More bitterness than a typical scottish ale. Very interesting for the style
