Well, first off, this place is a gas station. So, when you pull up to it, craft beer is not the first thing that comes to mind. When you step inside you'll find stadard gas station/convenience store fare; candy bars, sodas, salty snacks, and cigarettes as well as other vices.

Being a gas station/convenience store the service is virtually non-existant. The guy behind the counter really knows nothing of craft beer.

The selection is fairly decent (for the area). Lots of decent regional offerings, plus the larger brands; Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, Flying Dog, etc... I even saw a few good belgian beers. All in all a decent selection for the area.

Unfortunately, the beer seems to be a little overpriced, but given the selection in the surrounding area I can understand that.

Not a bad selection for this area. I went here going off the previous reviews here and the fact of the area lacking of any selection of the craft.... The salesman was very helpful with what I was looking for. Showed me what he has tried and gave his opinion. He said their limit was 6%. So no Scottie Karate gonna be here. Man sometimes I miss Michigan.....

OK, like other posters have said, consider the area this is in while reading my review.

I have been here many, many times while I lived in Cleveland. I wasn't so much in to beer then, so I decided to stop in while I visited my Mom last weekend and give it a review.

As far as quality goes, they have decent beer. Sweetwater, Lost Coast, Sammy Smith just to name a few. They also have some Lindemans incase the lady friend is with you.

Service is non existant as it IS a gas station.

Selection is by far the best in Bradley county. That said, it is the ONLY place in Bradley county to buy decent beer. They have beer both on the shelves and in coolers for you to pick up. It is somewhat cluttery, but beats nothing!

They are pretty cheap maybe a dollar higher per sixer than I pay here in ATL, but not bad at all. If you happen to drive by, its worth a stop.

this is quite literally a gas station.

Hey if your in between knoxville and chattanooga this is the ONLY place with a decent selection of craft beers. As a matter of fact it may have a better selection than any store in Chattanooga (party mart in east ridge is right with Harry's EDIT - Now, Riverside Beverage off Manufacturer's and in particular BEVERAGE WORLD near Ft. Oglethorpe off Ringgold Rd HAVE THE BEST SELECTIONS NOW)). The sign actually reads Harry food mart which doesn't sound appealing but the guys behind the counter are friendly and willing to bring something in if they think you'll buy it. The usuals...flying dog...arrogant bastard...paulaner(ohyeah)...trappist and some other fine imports but they also have some rare finds like grolsch light cans at 8.99 a twelve and huge selection of cheap domestics as well at more than competitive prices. A cleveland Speakeasy. Heck it wasnt until 2003 when you could buy a beer in a restaurant in Bradley County. Extremely cheap cigs for smokers-i quit myself.

Seriously, if you're driving north on 1-75 from Chatt towards Knoxville, this is you last chance stop for 1:45 to get a craft beer. Exit 27 Paul Huff Parkway take a right, then a right on mouse creek rd.

Okay, when reviewing this keep in mind these scores are relative to the area. This little store is located in Cleveland, TN and is actually a little place that has gas pumps, and vices of different kinds inside, one of these being craft beer. This is the ONLY place in Cleveland with any notable selection of craft beer and I have only recently discovered the place myself. Some of the seedier elements of Cleveland patron this shop as well, as I said earlier they accommodate to other vices as well which I don't need to get into in a beer related review. That said, this little store has 3-4 coolers and two aisles that accomodate craft beer. Things you would not be able to find except by taking a trip to Chattanooga or Knoxville, and a few things that I have not seen there. Lots of UK imports are here, McEwan's, Samuel Smith, I saw offerings from Heather Ales, as well as imports I have not seen before but have made a note to try. As far as American micros go they carry the standard highly distributed micros (Flying Dog, Sierra Neveda, large variety of each), they also have a great variety of rogue products in bombers and six-packs, and offerings from local brewers such as Dogwood. Must note that in my county no carry out liqour is served so all beers will be around 6% or lower.

If you ever find yourself stranded in Cleveland, TN, or if you somehow manage to live here like me, at least know there is a place close where you can go grab a good beer from a decent selection without taking a trip on the freeway.
