    I'll be taking a 1 way driving trip from Pittsburgh, PA to Knoxville to Nashville to Memphis to Dallas.

    Any good intel on local breweries along the Tenn route?

    thx much

    I would suggest stopping at Wise Acre in Memphis.

    Saw Works Brewing Company in Knoxville is a good visit. And in Knoxville, there is the Black Horse Brewing Company as well. In Johnson City, (Upper East Tennessee) there is Yee-Haw Brewing. Nashville has Yazoo.

    Nashville is probably going to have the most good breweries. I would stop at Yazoo in Nashville because within walking distance you have Yazoo, Jackalope, Czanns and Tennessee Brew Works. Not sure when you will be making the trip, but Mantra will be opening in November at some point. They will have a place in the Gulch and Mantra Artisan Ales out in Franklin, TN (which is really exciting). Certainly in Memphis, stop at Wiseacre. Don't know much about Knoxville. How close to you come to Asheville? I would detour there before looking for places in Knoxville, which is a great town, but just not a big beer place yet.

    If there's a way to re-route, go through the Columbus OH area for Jackie O's and Hoof Hearted (maybe best brewery name yet), then put Cincy (Madtree, Braxton, Rhinegeist) and/or Lexington KY (bourbon, Country Boy, West Sixth, more bourbon) on your list, then head to Nashville, Memphis, etc.

    I second that on Wiseacre, try their Gotta Get Up to Get Down Milk Stout. Really tasty stuff.

    Yes, Gotta Get Up to Get Down Milk Stout is awesome. Really tasty indeed. Their Coffee Stout is also superb.
