This was certainly on the itenerary during my recent Smokey Mountain vacation. Had intended on visiting the one in Gatlinburg, but I accidently came upon the one in Pigeon Forge so we went there. It is located in one of the many outlet parks in Pigeon Forge. Has brew tank on the roof with Smokey Mountain Brewery logo painted on it. As you walk in restraunt is to the right with a stage behind it. Brewery is in the back and is enclosed by glass so you can see what is going on. The brewer was cleaning out the mash tank while we were there. Bar is to the left. Lots of wood decor and several T.V.'s so you can watch the latest Mideast crisis or sports. Beers are good. Nothing earth shattering but good micro brews none the less. All I saw were there house beers. I didn't see anything else on tap or in bottles. Samplers come in what appears to be about 8oz pilsner glasses. I got 3 for 3.50. A deal if you ask me. I had the Ale Steak and it was very good. I also walked out with a case of beer for 30 bucks. Again I thought that was a very fair price. Food prices are about par with other brew pubs and other restraunts in the Smokey Mountain tourist area. If ever vacationing here I would recommend visiting Smokey Mountain Brewery.

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.
