“Great beer, fun staff & environment”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Had a couple hours to kill after leaving Gatlinburg before catching a plane. Wish now that I'd spent my weekend in Knoxville instead. Was looking for a brewery to sample some local beer on a Sunday afternoon and was pleasantly surprised to stumble into this gem. They had live jazz music and $2 drafts. Their beers were great, the bar staff was fun, upbeat and made it a point to learn and remember our names. The tater skins were huge (if a tad burned on the outside) and tasty. We spent $11 on 3 pints and an appetizer, can't beat it! When we were looking to hop to another place, they even suggested another great spot. Friendly and fun, it's the type of place I'd definitely come to regularly if I lived in Knoxville.

“Great Hanging Out Spot”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Awesome find in Knoxville. Good food, a great beer selection (their own +) and a lounge area upstairs that's great for hanging out. Spent a couple of hours there during one special had some beers with friends, got the bill...$10.50...it was something like $1.50 beer night, who can beat that?

“Bad late night after a game downtown ..”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Horrible late night food. Nachos were mediocre. Grilled cheese was dry & cheese was almost non existing. Staff was friendly but their late night menu sucks!!! Busy weekend after a football game ..thought they would be better.

“Awesome brewery!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I are here usually every Sunday. They have happy hour specials all day on Sunday and some appetizers are half price as well. They have a jazz band during the first part of the day and then whatever sports are on tv usually take over. Great place to hangout!

“Love their fries!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Great place for a meal in downtown Knoxville! Love the crinkle cut fries and their food is awesome too! Their baked potatoes are enormous and come with everything you would like to put on them.
