I stopped by here on a recent return trip from Pigeon Forge. This is a small shop, however, the selection was really good and the owner was friendly and helpful. The selection of malts isn't as big as other places on the net however they did have 5 and 10 lb. bags of American 2-row, Pilsner and Maris Otter. I didn't really check out their specialty malts. The prices were pretty similar to most online suppliers like Midwest. They also have a pretty wide hop selection. If you're in the area I recommend stopping by and checking them out.

Thought I'd give this place a review since nobody else has in a year or so. Right down the road and around the corner from my house this year in South Knox. THE only place to get any type of quality homebrewing equipment/ingredients in Knoxville. They've got all types of stuff for the beginner and the elite. A bit pricey but a small price to pay to make good beer. Got a yeast packet the other day that was out of date but took it back to swap and the problem was kindly taken care of. Good service over all.

What a great place tucked into the beautiful SoKno neighborhood of Vestal. Harry (the owner I believe) is a very knowledgeable and friendly man. He will tell you the truth and won't try to sell you anything unnecessary. He's got a good selection of beer and wine brewkits and a great collection of how-to literature. He hooked me up with several magazines after I purchased a copy of "The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" (which is indispensable for brewing knowledge). Stop in and support this local business which has been in South Knox for years.

p.s. Stop in and eat at King Tut's just across the street for another rare South Knoxville treat.

Ah, the little homebrew shop around the corner from my house. (Almost Literally) It's 5 minutes away. The guy that runs/owns the place is very knowledgeable and more than happy to help out the fledgling new home brewer. He has anything you could need for a home or garage based operation, and if he doesn't he'll order it for you.
The location is a little less than desirable in South Knoxville, and could be hard to find if one wasn't familiar with the area, but definitely worth stopping in. I haven't found a better place in the area.

This was a very nice little stop on my trip. This place was pretty small, as I find most homebrew shops are, but had a really great selection. Pretty much everything you could want and the staff was very friendly. The prices were pretty decent, but I did not have really anything in the area to compare it to other then Fermentations, and they seemed to be about equal. Overall if I was on this side of town, this would be my default stop for all of my supplies, defiantly a cool little store, with a cool vibe, and a very friendly staff. A must stop for the home brewer in Knoxville.

This small but very useful homebrew shop is housed in an old house in South Knoxville. It consists mainly of two rooms, the first contains a fridge that holds their fresh hops and other ingredients that need temp. control and the other is full of kits, extracts, car boys and even barrels for aging, as well as books on the subject. The owner is an older gentleman who is very helpful and willing to do what he can to get you what you need when you need it. It is geared more toward extract brewers, but they order a fair amount of fresh grains and hops. This is probably the main outpost for area homebrewers who don't make use of the internet supply sites.
