A place that truly tries to keep up with the high gravity market. With the crazy tax laws of our state that is a task. The selection is the best in Knoxville. Friendly staff always willing to help. Very good selection the go to place in Knoxville.

This place was a really lucky find for me. I was recommended to go to this place because the nice fellow there at Bearden Beer Market mentioned that it is the best place to get high gravity beers in Tennessee. Due to Tennessee law only liquor stores can carry high gravity beers (aka high ABV) and this place does have a really nice selection considering it is also a large liquor store. Very nice place and I am glad I could add it to rate beer for those in Tennessee that still may not know of this place.

What everyone else said - The staff is helpful and enthusiastic, but they are at the mercy of distributors. When The distributors are feeling generous, the selection here (of over 6% beers) is as good as anyone elses in Knoxville. One tip - try to plan a visit so that you will not have make a left turn in or out.

For the last 10 years, the largest selection of +6% beers in Knoxville liquor stores, and has improved tremendously in the last year and a half (2012-2013). Friendly and helpful staff. Brent is kind enough to keep all the local ratebeerians updated when new stuff arrives, and for years has been almost a single voice begging the wholesalers to bring moí bettuh high gravity beer to the area. They often get some rarer stuff in that isnít available even in other parts of the country. They also are the only operator in Knoxville who seems to understand the concept of discounting older stock in order to move it on out.

Best beer selection in Knoxville, can get a little pricy, as much due to Tennessee laws as anything though. Brent and the staff mostly know their stuff on some of the beers. The wall of scotch constantly tempts me to spend more than I should.

If you are looking for some decent hard to find beers in Knoxville, this is the place. A good selection of De Dolle and several other Belgians. A huge selection of brewdog, dogfish head and j.w. lees beers. I swing by here when I am in Knoxville to see what is new.

Largest selection in Knoxville. Out of some of my favorite hi-gravs but considering distribution situation in Knoxville certainly not their fault.

Typical TN high-alcohol selection, with a handful of things I havenít seen elsewhere (e.g., Baladin). Lately (summer 2006) their beer selection seems to have increased somewhat. Iíll usually stop by if Iím out in Cedar Bluff, but donít usually make a special trip.

McScrooges has a few high alcohol beers that come and go due to the frustrating distribution laws in TN. However, they have started expanding their beer shelf lately. I think they try to get anything in stock that the distributor will let them have. The staff is almost always engaging and is always willing to help if needed.
