in Tennessee you have to buy beer over 6% in a liqour store, so they do not have much stuff, mostly go for the stone, they don’t even have al that though, its ok

nearbeer  (227) Knoxville, Tennessee | April 11, 2007| Updated February 7, 2016
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 mo’ bettuh high gravity beer to the area. They often get some rarer stuff in that isn’t 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. They now have a great rotating 25 tap selection for growler and half growler fills.

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.

tronraner  (109) Walland, Tennessee | August 11, 2006
Typical TN high-alcohol selection, with a handful of things I haven’t seen elsewhere (e.g., Baladin). Lately (summer 2006) their beer selection seems to have increased somewhat. I’ll usually stop by if I’m out in Cedar Bluff, but don’t usually make a special trip.

NachlamSie  (697) Denver, Colorado | January 14, 2006| Updated March 26, 2007
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.

ClarkVV  (102) Allston, Massachusetts | February 14, 2005
What they have is fine. It’s 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.

beerandrugby  (14) Nashville, Tennessee | January 31, 2005
The staff is indeed friendly and knowledgeable, but the selection is not as good as Ashe’s 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 else’s 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.
