Passing through Knoxville on the way to Nashville, I saw the high ratings of this place so decided to swing by for a visit. Very "Texan" like entrance with open doors and then a HUGE area for either beer events or room for college parties. On the right (when walking into this open area) looked like a beer store. This was where you ordered your beer on-tap, in bottle, or took beer away. Growler refills were also available. They let you browse with no limits in the cooler with chilled bottles to-go available in the same room with the kegs, in the beer garden, or in the ping-pong/television room. While walking around for a while, there was a bon-fire going right next to the television room with a ping-pong table by it. A total college hang out!

Their "bar" has a chalkboard behind it with all of the listed beers on-tap. You can also buy any one of their beers on the shelves and enjoy also where ever you please.

Staff were easy going and friendly. I Was able to chat with Chris, the owner, and he knew exactly who I was meeting the next day for my tasting. Tight-knit community around Tennessee. After enjoying a brew with him, he gave me some pointers if I were to come back or when in Nashville what to see.

The selection on-tap was decent (7-8 offered including a nitro) but in bottle!?!? Couldn't beat this! I wasn't able to take anymore to go except for one or two interesting ones because of the haul I already created in the back of my trunk. Will be back when passing through Knoxville though!

I recommend stopping by this place for I've never seen anything like it! For my current age and what I like to do, this was a perfect place for great beer and to hang with friends. Don't come if your looking for a "waiting" on experience or classy. Very easy going here.

We stopped here on our way to Bonnaroo, and they had planned ahead and stocked extra cans for the festival-goers. Bottle/Can selection is pretty good, nothing world class, they also keep constantly rotating tap lines, which was nice to fill my growler up as well. The outdoor patio is really nice with plenty of space, the store definitely had a nice vibe. We stayed long enough to have a couple on tap before taking off. Next time I go to Bannaroo, I'll definitely stop by again.
