a smaller store with a great selection Brusin only sells beer, as you walk in on the wood floors you get a sense that this place sells what you are looking for if your in town and need some brew for your room this is the store to go to have great selection of local,regional and imported beer i like that you may break any sixer or 4pk to create your own sixer i ended up getting 2 6pks of various local brew like green man foot hills catawaba pisgah and some regional like ska sweetwater allagash store is a little hard to find but worth the effort

I've been going to Bruisin' Ales a few times a year since they opened. For a while they were the biggest fish in town. The great selection of usually high quality beers was enough for me to overlook the short comings. A couple years ago a fearsome competitor opened up down the road and now Bruisin' Ales is playin' second fiddle. You'll pay a bit more at Bruisin' Ales. Fresh beers do come in and out of there, but the core inventory seems to sit there a while... I'm relatively OK with these things-- you just have to shop with a sharp eye. However, my interactions with the personnel, especially one of the owners, have been most disappointing. Perhaps I'm expecting too much... This should be the kind of place where the staff are open to talking beer. Actually, it IS the place to talk beer, IF you work there. If you're not an employee, you're just there to buy what they're sellin'. To be fair, most of the guys will put on a good show once they disengage from their "private" chatter. I've received nothing but thinly-veiled snobbery from the highest level of management though. Underestimating your customer is a mortal sin in the business world. Go here to find the few things you can't get elsewhere. Leave quickly and then go make some friends at the "other place" down the road.

Bruisin Ales is a must stop for any beer lover going to Beer City, USA. Their selection and knowledge of everything they have it second to none and they are eager to help you find what you like. I come through here for business often and it is a must stop whenever I am passing through. I have taken numerous friends there and would never hesitate to recommend it as a place to stock up on great beers I can't find in TN.
