NEW “PUCKETT’S BREW” IS STRAIGHT OUTTA NASHVILLE!

Puckett's Brew

Our restaurants have a new beer offering on their menus, and in true Puckett’s fashion, it is produced locally at Nashville’s oldest craft brewery, Blackstone Brewing Company. Their Helles style Lager is the new “Puckett’s Brew” and is now being served in all Puckett’s restaurants, including Puckett’s Boat House!

Why’d we choose Blackstone, you ask? Well, several Blackstone beers have long been staples on Puckett’s menus, and their continual popularity inspired us to pursue a partnership that would spotlight a Blackstone Brewing Company product as the crowd favorite “Puckett’s Brew.”

The creation of the lager is an art, and it requires a minimum of 30 days to perfect through a production cycle that takes place in Blackstone’s brewing system from Germany, made especially to brew German-style lagers.

We toured the brewery and chatted with Thomas Solinsky, director of sales and marketing for Blackstone, about the careful planning and quality control that goes into the crafting of the beer.

“Throughout the process, we strive for the highest quality possible when crafting our beers,” Solinsky told us. “If the brew cycle is finished and we are not satisfied with the final product, we will hold back on selling it and start over.”

Light, with low bitterness and a crisp and pleasant malty flavor, Solinksy said his team settled on this recipe because it is well balanced and doesn’t have too strong of a flavor. This beer will pair well with just about anything on the menu, which makes it an easy sell when eating BBQ and fried chicken at Puckett’s!

Located just west of downtown Nashville at 2312 Clifton Ave., Blackstone Brewery has recently added a tasting room and will soon allow visitors to enjoy outdoor tastings in a beer garden. Situated on 3.5 acres of land, it boasts 130 fruit trees and various vegetable plants, and produces its own honey on-site.

Swing by and grab a mason jar of the Puckett’s Brew; you won’t be disappointed!

PUCKETT’S BOAT HOUSE “UNCORKED” SERIES RETURNS MAY 17

IMG_2311

Puckett’s Boat House will once again partner with Moon Wine & Spirits to shine a light on its premier wine bar on Tuesday, May 17 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. by bringing back “Uncorked”– an educational, monthly tasting series that will focus on informative topics, food pairings and all things wine-related.

The first event, “Understanding the Wine Lifestyle: Wine 101,” will serve as an introductory course that highlights the basics, led by Brad Lentz, certified sommelier and manager of Puckett’s Grocery in Franklin.

We chatted with Brad and Eddie, the owner of Moon Wine & Spirits, to get their takes on wine and the “Uncorked” series. Here’s what they said:

What inspired this event series?

Brad: “Uncorked” was brought about as a means of community outreach; to bring people together for a fun, educational and entertaining purpose. It’s also a great opportunity to expose people to the wine bar and to highlight the amazing assortment of wines that Moon Wine & Spirits offers.

Eddie: We’re very excited about this year and to be able to continue the partnership with Puckett’s Boat House! The topics are going to be fun, and the wines and foods will be great.

What ideas do you have for subsequent class themes?

Brad: After we cover Wine 101, we think the natural progression for June is to highlight summer celebrations — barbecues, Father’s Day, pool parties– and hone in on the wines that are going to go best with the foods people will likely be serving. We’re still talking through themes for the rest of the classes.

Eddie: A big initiative is to make sure most, if not all of the wines featured are on Puckett’s Boat House menu and in the wine store as well. We want people to fall in love with these wines that we feature and be able to easily buy them in our store or order them next time they’re at the Boat House.

What drew each of you to explore wine?

Brad: I became intrigued by it in the late 90s and discovered that I had a good palate, and was encouraged by a friend who had been doing this for a living that I ought to think about doing more with it, so I became a certified sommelier. There is just something about the experience of sharing wine, whether it be at a nice dinner or sitting out on the patio with friends; there is a wine for every occasion and I love that about it.

Eddie: Of course I’m in the wine and liquor business, but wine is so complex.  There are only a few steps to making whiskey, but there are so many steps to making wine and it can be affected by so many different elements– It’s truly fascinating.

Brad: It’s the winemaker’s expression of love in a bottle.

Tell us what you recommend for a casual glass of wine while you’re hanging around the house.

Eddie: Dry rosés have become the highest ticket item recently.

Brad: I agree. A good, dry rosé would be my choice. It’s perfect for hot summer weather drinking.

So, there you have it, folks! — Expert opinions and musings about all things wine! “Uncorked” tickets for May 17 can be purchased through the link below and seats are limited, so hurry and buy yours! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/uncorked-series-understanding-the-wine-lifestyle-wine-101-tickets-24881534339

KROGER ADDS PUCKETT’S LINE OF SAUCES, SPICES & RUBS TO MIDDLE TN SHELVES

e-pucketts-family-of-merchandise

You heard it here first, y’all! Krogers throughout Middle Tennessee are making two of our popular Franklin-based restaurants more accessible to local shoppers: this month, the retail grocery chain began stocking its shelves with Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant and Puckett’s Boat House lines of sauces, spices and rubs that will allow fans to recreate the taste in their own home-cooked meals.

Eight of our products will be featured in the “Pick Tennessee” section across 40 stores, ranging between $3.99 and $4.99 and include our Puckett’s original and spicy BBQ sauces, a brisket marinade, a rib rub, a burger shake, a pork bbq rub and an all-purpose seasoning.

We have a hunch that Puckett’s original and spicy tomato-based BBQ sauces will reign as the shelves’ most sought-after products. The original is the Marshall family’s Memphis-style version, which harkens back to Andy’s roots with a savory sauce that’s sweet with no heat, and as versatile as it gets. Its spicy sauce suggests more of a Texan influence, with bold flavor that holds just the right amount of pepper, and sweet and tangy at the same time.

Each of the Southern-bent seasoning offerings — which includes four different shakes and rubs — carry a little bit of heat, with a healthy balance of smoke to complement pulled pork, ribs, chicken, burgers and more. In addition to the specially blended spices, our Brisket Marinade and Puckett’s Boat House Pepper Sauce round out any shopper’s BBQ needs, and include chef directions on the label (i.e. “marinate meat overnight in your refrigerator for 8-12 hours to achieve that perfect Puckett’s taste”).

Do us a favor and take a selfie when you see it on the shelves and tag @puckettsgrocery and @puckettsboath — we want to see how good they look on the shelves!
