To celebrate the Chattanooga Times Free Press turning 150 years old this year, Heaven & Ale Brewing Co. in the North Shore brewed a 150th anniversary commemorative beer. The beer, dubbed "Watchdog 150" by columnist Mark Kennedy, is a "winter warmer," according to Heaven & Ale owner Joe Winland. The name describes the mission of the Times Free Press to be a watchdog and trustworthy local news source for the Chattanooga region.
"None of the spices are particularly overwhelming; everything meshes really nicely. It's still got a nice-like bready, caramelly presence to it," Winland said.
The beer will be available for a limited time at the brewery at 300 Cherokee Blvd., Ste. 101.
