Beer List

Not much to add today other than the beer list. Please post any and all comments/suggestions, especially any ladies that might read this post (wondering whether or not to carry smirnoff, bacardi, etc.). I was not planning on selling beer because the demographic for this area right now is lunch heavy. The city is expected to have 6000-7000 new residents in the next 24 months, so the demographic will evolve over that time and the dinner/weekend crowd should become larger. Nolensville currently has around 4500 residents liveing there now. Anyway, i probably wont make much $$$ selling it in the first year but figured i'd rather have it than not have it. Obviously wouldnt want "joe blow" and his family to decide to eat pizza instead of my place because ol' joe can't get beer at my place. Here it is:

Coors Light
Miller Light
Bud Light
High Life (The "Champaign" of beers)
Pabst Blue Ribbon
Falls City

Old Style
Dixie Beer
Blue Moon
Shiner Bock
Sam Adams

For some reason I thought that Boscos "kick my ass twice as fast" beer might be on the list. Course then our wives would be a little more hesitant about visiting your joint, we might never leave, and we'd scare the kids and old folk...

Good choice!

I can certainly get behind Newcastle with my BBQ.

Just stumbled upon your blog - enjoying the read. Thanks. Hope the business is going well.

What is this Blog???

You ever been sitting around cooking for your family and friends and been told the following: "Hoss, this is the best I've ever had in my dadgum have got to open up a place of your own". The thought crosses your mind to do just that, but for whatever reason you dont. Well I'm "that" guy that actually went through with it and did it. I had absolutely ZERO restaurant experience! I decided to start this blog about my own experience hoping that it may be of some use and help to others who might be interested in opening their own place.
I learned this craft almost 20 years ago cooking whole hogs on brick & cinder block pits at a couple of little BBQ Joints in Henderson, TN. I learned from old, lifelong career Pit-Masters, working with them as an apprentice during school off and on for four years. Over the course of that time I learned the old, time-honored craft of REAL pit barbecue. At Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint I am trying as hard as I can everyday to bring that time-honored authenticity to my customers.
As you read you'll see I've made some stupid decisions, and I've made some good decisions. If you are thinking of opening a restaurant, especially a BBQ Joint, read this blog! Maybe some of this info can be of use to you. At the very least you will be entertained because I pull no punches.
Now listen, this is my blog to not only help with information but my blog to freely rant about my day to day experiences. There is no real "bad language" on this blog but there might be some things said that are very "tongue in cheek". If you are easily offended and/or cant see the satire in my posts then please just leave the blog. It will save both of us the annoyance of each other. For those of you who do like satire and are looking for good information about this experience, then by all means enjoy!
