Good restaurant on Union Square in downtown Knoxville. Long waits both times we went. Mainly a restaurant, small bar area with approx 9 taps - local and regional stuff. Great food, but there are other bars nearby with better selections if you are focused on beer.

Tupelo Honey is a fantastic restaurant with a tantalizing food menu and innovative cocktails. Itís not really a beer joint. One of the main foci of the restaurant is local product and that translates very directly to the beer list. The problem is that much of the brews represented are not what I would call exceptional craft brews. Take a peek at the avg scores to the left of the beers available at Tupelo Honey. I actually declined a beer with my dinner because I couldnít find anything that I really wanted. Thankfully The Casual Pint is next door.

Ok, yeah, only 9 taps, but all are local or regional, and the bottle selection is small but well thought out. This isnít really a beer destination, but a wonderful food destination with a proper appreciation for beer.
