V: Everyone there is into craft/HG beer. Plenty of seating, nice people, etc. Has a side with a large arcade selection, darts, pool, etc.
Q: May be hard to get there, and it's sometimes too busy. But, it's a high-quality place nonetheless.
Ser: Service is usually fast and friendly. Many of the people there are very knowledgeable about beer as well and willing to give me their true recommendations.
Sel: Rotating taps of mostly high gravity beers. Lighter bottles for others, and usually the tap selection runs the gamut of styles for everybody's tastes and sensibilities. This is my favorite place for beer in Knoxville.

I love this place.
Great selection of rotating taps.
Great presence in the beer community in Knoxville.
Always has the late breaking stuff to come in.
Decent bar food that isn't your typicall wings and fried shit!
Employees know their stuff.

downfalls-
Parking (kinda) it comes with being downtown.
Not open early... some of us like to day drink
and lack of a nice out door beer garden, although some outside seating is availible.

Cheers!

Best spot for beers and conversation. Menu changed daily. Always drowning in drool-worthy beers. Frequent special events/tap takeovers. Best kept secret: their food. The owner describes it as "stoner fusion".

Best place to get a beer in Downtown Knoxville. Beer list changes weekly or until they run out. Staff are knowledgeable and informed and are easy to talk to. Great Music and trivia as well. Service is fast and the beer choices will send your taste-buds into overload. You can always ask to sample any beer before making your choice too.

Cool, place, relaxed atmosphere. Right downtown. They have a pretty decent selection, all high-grav. Tried the creme-brulee stout. They seem to update their selection pretty frequently. Also have nitro taps which is always awesome. The service is pretty good, they get to you quickly and are polite. Will definitely return in the future.

Finally a place for the forgotten palette to come and enjoy great brews with knowledgeable people in Knoxville. Selection changes momentarily with what is available. Unfortunately, in Knoxville with the terrible beer laws this is not as wonderful as in neighboring states. But this is an oasis in the mediocre of the beer scene in east tennessee. The people who gather here are friendly and bring to share.
