King Chestnut

STYLE:  American Brown

ABV: 5.60%, IBU: 28

Once prominent, a blight destroyed almost 98% of the American chestnut trees between 1904-1906 (Wikipedia). In Tennessee, it was called the "King of the Forest." Two of the largest surviving American chestnut trees are actually in Jackson County, TN.

These days, the American Chestnut Foundation is working hard to repopulate the trees across the country. What better way to honor the history of the chestnut than through beer?!

Braised or smoked meats, big pots of chili, along with generous slices of pumpkin pie.
