New location for the brewery, as of this time even their website lists the old address. They are between lights 2B and 3 in Pigeon Forge, on the right side if you're coming in TN66 to 441.

Lots of big screen TVs inside with various coverage of whatever's on sports-wise. They have live music in the evenings, a nice touch.

Although the operation and restaurant itself is rather nice, the staff seems unaware to some extent of exactly what they are sitting on. I had a sampler of 4 beers and thought the server might have mixed a few up. When I asked the host for some help, she immediately disclaimed any potential for assistance. Turned out she helped after all, but the staff definitely needs a more educated stance on what they have at SMB. 6 regular beers plus a few seasonals will satisfy your essential session needs, but I think they could support up to 12 taps.

The food was tasty and prompt (even the kids' chicken tenders were tasty, tender and juicy), but we didn't see much of our server despite visiting during late afternoon. The pretzels and cheese were warm, soft, and tasty. My wife's chicken reuben was outstanding, as was my Rooster sandwich (chicken breast with peppercorn ranch dressing).

Overall, the beers won't wow but they won't disappoint either. Their amber is especially tasty IMO. They do have bottles for carry-out as well as growlers so you can sample their product on tap or from the glass.

Came here after a long day of hiking Mount Leconte. We were staying in Gatlinburg anyway, so figured we'd check this place out. Very much the feel of a ski-lodge pub. Big place, with two levels of bar and dining area. The food was okay, what you'd expect for a pub in a touristy area, I guess. We ordered a sampler of their beers and all of them were sub-par in my opinion, but again, aimed at the masses. I doubt the beer comes first here. In fact, I know the beer doesn't come first here because every table around me had a crying baby at it. They must have hated the beer even more than I did.

I honestly expected Gatlinburg to be more like a Jackson Hole, WY or North Conway, NH, but it's more like a hillbilly Vegas strip or Niagra Falls minus the gambling. At least downtown was like this, but as I drove out of that sad little town I was met with the same cheap tourist traps in places like Pigeon Forge. It made my heart sad.
