Visisted both the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge on a trip to Dollywood, and the surounding area.
Overall this was a great place to get some good quality micro brew beers. I really enjoyed the Mountain Light beer as at this point I was just starting to branch outside my Coors comfort zone.
The Gatlinburg one was more like a cozy pub, while the Pigeon Forge one was more like a commercial sports bar...both were to my liking cant wait to go back, and when I do this time I will be brinign some beer home with me!

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.
