I can’t say I understand Tennessee beer laws. Why 6% is the dividing line is beyond me. It makes for a disjointed buying experience. Places either seem to sell either under 6 beer or over 6 beer. Is there something preventing liquor stores from selling under 6 beer as well. The beer selection vey small with only one side of a short aisle and a cooler and a half of beer. The selection was solid for what it was but nothing to drive out for. I only stopped because of the billboard near the interstate. One good thing in their favor is that they sell nearly everything as a single.

I don’t get to East Knoxville very often, but If I did, I would make this a regular stop. Pretty decent selection, with pretty much all of the Knox County over 6% stuff. Friendly and enthusiastic staff. Nice place.

Slightly below average selection for Knoxville, but well worth a visit for folks on the Eastside of Knox County. They seem open to suggestions, having gotten in a few beers I had requested. Prices are a bit lower than downtown wine and spirits.

Just expanded their beer section, which is pretty much the standard high gravity fare for the better liquor stores in Knoxville. Nice staff who said they are planning to expand the stock further. Along with the four or five other stores in the area who have done likewise in the last year or so, the area now has much better coverage on all sides of town. Maybe we finally got some momentum going and the &%!*in’ local distributors will get their asses on board too!
