Posted in the order in which they were received. Some refer directly to Memphis comments.
"I wanted to be the first one to post.... Of course we are the best of Boscos (Nashville)and we will win the ABM Cup."
- Fred M. Scheer (Editor's note: Fred is the brewmaster at Boscos in Nashville)
"Nashville is a natural choice. The reason is beer superiority in taste color and overall body. I used to live in Memphis and would travel to Nashville just for the Boscos on 21st Ave. Good job guys!"
- Jared Hutto
"Great food, Great Beer and the best beer drinkers ever found - How can we not be the BEST Brewpub?!!!"
"Nashville rules! Memphis drools!"
"I am a big fan of Boscos beer no matter where I go. Living in Nashville, I, of course love Nashville Boscos. The beer is consistently excellent. That is not just my opinion but also the opinion of others with whom I happen to meet there. I am a regular drinker of the IPA and a sometime Hefeweizen, Wheat, Pilsner and Juniper drinker. Boscos makes a great IPA and the casks are particularly excellent. I have enjoyed many of the cask beers, including the blackberry porter and blackberry alt that sold out in about 30 min after its opening recently. Fred Scheer does a great job since coming to Nashville Boscos. I have only been to Memphis Squared twice. I enjoyed both visits. I have also been to Germantown Boscos twice. I enjoy Boscos beer whether it is Nashville or Memphis. It is easily the best beer I have found in Tennessee. I appreciate the pub that Chuck Skypeck established several years ago and thank him for giving Tennesseans such a wonderful place to drink beer."
- Neil Green
I have had the opportunity to have beer at both Memphis locations as well as the Nashville location. Nashville is by far the best of the three! The IPA on tap ROCKS! and the bottle conditioned is always a good choice. :) I recommend a visit to Hillsboro Village and BOSCOS NASHVILLE, any day!
"It pains me to read such disparging remarks from our brethren to the south west. We are all here, (or there) for one reason, and that is excellence in beer. I have no doubt that Chuck can still brew as good a beer as he did when he was in Nashville and I can attest that Fred still knows how to make great beer. I never met a Boscos beer I didn't like. But when it comes down to a contest, if it is based on 'Perhaps most important, which Boscos' regulars are better supporters of American Beer Month?' well, I am afraid it won't be much of a contest. I have never met such a proactive and enthusiastic bunch of brewers and beer drinkers as I have met at Boscos Nashville.
"Fred's cask-conditioned IPA is the best beer in Tennessee."
- Randall Skinner
"Bosco's in Nashville has a German brewmaster. Sure, now that I live less than a mile from Anchor brewing I have some options not available in Nashville, but I'll be going back for a Wednesday night happy hour before the end of the month!"
- Jay Pfaffman
"I have been to all of the fine Boscos' establishments and enjoyed great food and beer at each. Chuck - You know we love you but Nashville is where it's at!"
- Jay Man
"I don't think the post about a German Brewmaster was ment to be negative. Everyone has the right to his/her opinion (otherwise I'm back in Germany). One reason I came to the USA was of the beer and brewing revolution I saw coming in the early '80s - and I wanted to be a part of the new Beer culture here. I don't know where Chuck heard several stories where I was born (???), but to set your stories right (for now and ever) I was born in the Saarland, at a year (many moons ago) which was then France. It (the Saarland) was sold back to Germany in 1959, and all of us became Germans. But, who do I tell that, you all had history in school and know that, or? So, I grew up speaking French, then German. I consider myself a naturalized American Citizen, born in France, grew up in Germay, trained as Brew- and Maltmaster at the DOEMENS Brewing school in Munich, Germany. And, no matter what, we (Nashville) will win.... Nuff said, Happy American Beer (Month).
- Fred M. Scheer
"Dearest Bill, I hope you are not drooling in the food as usual... remember what the doctor said, stay off the sauce."
- Jared Hutto, Head Chef Nashville
"Interesting comments from our beer-head buddies in the Delta! My goodness, won't they ever learn not to sling slurry? FYI: According to current and published TN Grand Division statistical data-the State's population average IQ, SES, and beer consumption level dramatically increases the farther East one resides. Hummmm, something to ponder on. Anyway, we (The Nashville Coalition) are collectively doing our very best to run all the taps dry.... "American Beer Month", heck..."American Beer Year" is more the attitude you'll find among Nashville's brethren. And, thanks to an article recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, beer has been linked to promoting strong bones! Yeseree friends and neighbors, that means more beer = less osteoporosis! That's great news for All! See ya at the brewery."
- Brew Goddess
"I live exactly between Memphis & Nashville and visit all three Boscos, but I prefer and you can find me on most weekends at Boscos in Nashville. Clearly, Fred is consistently setting the standard for exellence in brewing. In addition, Fred is an inspiration, mentor & enthusiastic supporter of the Music City Brewers, Nashville's Homebrew Club. For all these reasons and others, I am sure, all patrons & club members will close ranks behind Nashville's Boscos to support American Beer Month."
- Cheers forever, Michael Link
"Memphis could not post anything on Thursday because they starting giving away all the promo material meant for Nashville. Chuck, no matter how you play, it seems you guys are afraid of us.
Go, Nashville, Go."
Name: Fred M. Scheer (naturalized American Citizen; with a German degree in Brewing and Malting)
"I have not made it to Bosco's Squared but know Chuck Skypeck. I know it has to be good with Chuck at the helm. I do know Bosco's in Nashville. Fred brews up some awsome beer. Fred is always willing to help the folks in the Music City Brewers and I for one appreciate it very much.
Now as to the regulars... I just have to believe that the Nashville group comes out on top in their support of American Beer Month."
- Phillip Porch
"I have to concur with the Brew Goddess, it should be 'American Beer Year'. As the Ale Wife Queen, I hereby proclaim it to be American Beer Year in Nashville.... After all, it is about Truth, Justice and the American way.... Brew and Drink American Beer.
Hail to the BrewMistresses!"
- Ale Wife Queen
"Sorry to crush the egos in Memphis but it's true, Nashville Boscos beers are superior and as consistant as the patrons. The aroma of the IPA sets my taste buds into a frenzy. By the way, who cares where someone was born? We're voting on the beer right? Cheers!"
"Hands down & pints up Boscos in Nashville is the place. The 'regulars' are greeted upon entry and treated upon seating. Though different in style of management, Chuck & Fred brew the beers of style. Thank you gentlemen and staff."
- Commander Gat
"What else is there to say about Boscos Nasville...great beer...great food...great staff..great patrons. Hey Chuck...How's the foam?"
"We just had 5 400-pound guys come into Nashville Bosco's and agree to drink 15 pints each get busy..."
"Why is Bosco's squared so close to the zoo? So Louis will not have far to walk to work."
- Michael Talley
"As a founding member of the Music City Brewers, and among the first patrons at Boscos Nashville when it first opened its doors in 1996, it has been my distinct pleasure to drink many, if not all of the different varieties of beer that Chuck and Fred have brewed there since opening. I've also had the priviledge of sampling many of the beers at both the Germantown and Boscos Squared locations. Like many who have commented to this point, all of these Boscos beers share one common thread: They are by far the best beers brewed on the planet. As a BJCP Certified Beer Judge, I would be hard pressed to select one beer above another one, and might even find it difficult to identify the source of a given beer, they are all brewed so expertly and crafted with pride. HOWEVER, this contest is not about the beers so much as it is about the places, and I do have a strong opinion about that. To me, the place in Nashville feels like home, and that is as much due to how friendly and welcoming the staff are as it is by the fact that it has been the home base of the Music City Brewers from the very beginning of our coming together. Boscos Squared cannot make the same claim that their beers are so good that the local homebrew club chooses their establishment as the place to hold their meetings. In my book, that is a real testimony to just how great the place in Nashville is. Besides that, only the Nashville location can lay claim as being the true Valhala of beer by virtue of it being home to the one and only Hopgod! Finally, one last example of how dedicated the Boscos Nashville patrons are. A large group of us drove to Memphis to the Boscos Squared location last year to attend the Bluff City Brewers Homebrew Extravaganza #11. On the Friday night of their event, we attended the tapping of the cask that was featured that night. I believe it was the prize-winning recipe for the Homebrewer of the Year Award for the Memphis club. But, in true fashion of the Nashville crowd, when it came time to making the most noise
between the folks from Nashville and the regulars from Boscos Squared, our group from Nashville won that contest hands down! Just ask Chuck and Trevor...I think they actually kind of missed how rowdy we could be on occasion! Trevor and Chuck, we sure do miss you guys, but we sure like Boscos in the Village! I'm heading down there in about an hour for our traditional Wednesday night around the cask, a tradition made possible by the regular support of the Music City Brewers from the very beginning of Chuck's cask conditioned beers. Hail to the Brewers!"

"Don't you guys in Memphissssss have anybody other than managers., employees, and your brewmister that will post comments? Except for Keith & Danny I don't see much in the way of customer comments. Thank you to all of our loyal & supportive Nashville regulars. You are the Best!!!!!!!"
"Chuck - Glad to see some of your customers are finally responding to the challenge, not only you and your evil staff. Unfortunately, most of them are long-winded and unintelligible. Come back and join the fun guys again! Beer is great in every Bosco's, but it just seems to taste better in Hillsboro Village! Nashville Rocks!"
- Jay Man
"The basic difference between Nashville and Memphis is the water; Nashville water makes great beer and grows healthy, intelligent kids whereas Memphis water is muddy like the Mississippi."
- Jeff Rousal
"No contest: Boscos Nashville rocks and Memphis rolls. Maybe in a few years when Memphis works out all the kinks, they'll be as good as Nashville, til then, eat your heart out, Chuckyyyyy!!!!!"
- Eberhard Ramm
"I should say what an honest brewmaster we have at Nashville Boscos. I tried to increase sales by ordering $1 beer samplers (ok, yes, I am dishonest). But Fred, our brewmaster, counts beer sales by the size not the number! Now what is this I hear about Boscos Squared counting spills?"
"To Jody: We can post comments AND drink beer at the same time. I am enjoying a very refreshing Prohibition Pilsener and sending."
"Bosco's NASHVILLE is the best!!! Fred has character and it shows in his beer. I am a homebrewer and Fred has given both my husband and myself many intersting tips about brewing. The clientele in Nashville is an eclectic mix of brewers, non-brewers and the uninitiated that love 'good beer.' This is what this competition is all about after all. I think Bosco's Nashville is a wonderful example of how a brewer can take what was a fantastic brewery and added a extra flavor of brewing with a worldwide expertise and innovative ideas. Bosco's Nashville is a wonerful experience. Come try us and you'll know what 'secret ingredient' Bosco's Squared is missing."
"I was here last nite thinking about Fred's IPA. Oh how I love the color....the smell...the taste. Nobody makes an IPA like that German. Well, alone in my dreams..out comes Fred with a cask. I hoped...I wished...I dreamed....and YES!!!! A cask IPA!! Fred, the German brewer strikes again!! And boy was it good!! Anyway, I feel sad that you guys in Memphis didn't get that experience with me. Oh well, I'm sure you had something pretty good. Anyway, now I sit here with my blackberry alt, bottle conditioned....Dream On Memphis!"
"Chuck, are you sure that you don't count Germantown's and the Square's Beer sales together? Also, we think that the web site has a selection process going on (all postings from Memphis OK; Nashville~~~~some). Two of my postings and one from Pierre were never posted."
"What does the average person at boscos Memphis get on an i.q. test?.........drool!"
"Hi Stan and the whole Team at REALBEER.COM:
I would like to thank all of you for a GREAT JOB during this last three days.
We all have a Boscos Beer (only in Nashville) to all of your health.
Cheers! Prost !(that's German, Gene...)"
- Fred M. Scheer and the whole Team Boscos Nashville
"I want to thank Chuck and all the staff at Boscos squared for not wanting to get (on) my case...case of blackberry porter, that is!! You don't like or want it? More for us then!! Btw....I have nice dreams about being able to drink beer at Boscos Squared and Germantown too....Been there before and hope it won't be too long before I'm there again."
