We realized recently we throw a lot of web addresses and places out to people and decided that we better start a list on the site to make things a little easier. This is a work in progress and if you see a place/site we need to add, shoot us an e-mail.
Beer Purchasing: Locations in and around Knoxville
The Casual Pint – Great place, great selection and they welcome you to bring food from their neighbors. Locations are all over town – Bearden, Downtown, Fountain City, Northshore, Maryville, Hardin Valley….so what’s your excuse?
Bearden Beer Market – just before Sequoyah Hills on Kingston Pike if you’re headed West. Great place to hang out, grab a pint. They do growlers, kegs and are constantly rotating brews.
McScrooge’s – Cedar Bluff – one of the largest beer selections in Knoxville.
Cedar Bluff Wine & Spirits – Cedar Bluff – while some may say their selection is small, it’s mighty. Crowler fills too!
Beer Purchasing: Locations a little further from Knoxville
Bruisin’ Ales – Asheville, NC. – if you’re ever around A’ville you’ve got to check this place out. Great selection, knowledgeable staff and they’ll ship.
Beverage World – Fort Oglethorpe, GA. – just over the TN/GA line close to Chattanooga. Awesome selection, knowledgeable staff and they always seem to have something new.
Homebrew sites/places to be aware of:
Ferment Station – in Baron’s Place on Kingston Pike (close to Rothchild Catering). Whether you’re just getting started in homebrew or have been doing it for years, this is a great resource. The staff are great and if they don’t have it, they can order it for you. Also a great wine selection if you’d like to brew some of that up.
Morebeer.com – great site to pick up homebrew supplies – KnoxBeerSnob Don approved.
