I was surprised to see that this place had not been added yet. This is my go to store in Maryville, and from what I have seen in Knoxville, I would say this store has a more quality selection too.

If we were talking just in the state of TN, I would rate this place higher than I did because it is one of my favorites, but overall there are much better selections in the stores I have been to located in different states.

This is the place to go for Rochefort 10 and 8. I cannot recall seeing it in many other places around here. They have several other belgians, and a better selection of Great Divide, and DFH than anywhere else I have seen in East TN. They also have Stone Ruination.

Overall one of the better selections in East TN that I have seen and a nice place to stop.

Stopped by while visiting family in Maryville around Christmas.

My first impression was that the staff did't really care. Neither of the two gentlemen behind the counter spoke to us as we entered or as we were looking around.

As far as selection goes, there was only one shelf of beer, and it was located right next to the door in front of a giant glass window. There were piles of boxes around the shelf, but they mostly looked to be filled with the same stuff as what was on the shelf. Very small selection, but what they did have was top notch. Choices were a few Ommegang, a few Unibroue, a few DFH, some Great Divide, Rochefort, Aventinus and some others.

Don't know how other stores in the area are, but Foothills' prices seemed a bit inflated. I've seen most of the beers for anywhere from $1.50 to $3.00 cheaper per single in Nashville and Atlanta.

I probably won't stop here again because there are better choices along my route, but if I lived here I'm sure I would visit regularly to keep stocked up on some favorites.
