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.

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.

What they have is fine. Itís really tough to comment, I know they are restricted by poor distribution in TN and only being able to carry 6% abv or more beers at that. Very friendly staff, but ultimately, nothing particularly new to see here. Plenty of DFH though, so that would do if I lived down here. Mendocino Winter Ale was kind of cool, and they did have Stone AB and Ruination. A very well-laid out wine store as well.

The staff is indeed friendly and knowledgeable, but the selection is not as good as Asheís plus I really hate all the traffic in this area! On the up-side they will chill your beer for you in their wine chiller.

See all comments below. Rather dismal hi-alc beer selection, maybe the best around. Knoxville sucks like that. Knowledgeable friendly staff. The best wine and spirits store in town, however.

I have to echo everyone elseís comments on Knoxville being a crappy place to purchase beer. However, McScrooges does have one of the best selections in the area.

I also agree with everyone. Knoxville is just a shitty place to live if you want good beer! But their are a few places in town McSrooges being one of them, that tries to stock up for the beer lover.

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.

In Tennessee, the law says high alcohol beer must be distributed by the liquor distributors and sold in a liquor store. Thing is...the liquor distibutors donít want to haul beer! (I guess I wouldnít want to distribute my competition either)
Ditto what haddon90 said. Ask for Brent (mickblueeyes)
