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.
