The only thing really wrong with this place is how damned smoky it gets, but overall, one of the best pubs Iíve set foot in!

Named "One of Americaís Premier Pubs" by All About Beer magazine, this is a newish urban bar with a focus on beer and live music. The place is small, so conversation is not really possible when a band is playing. They have an excellent selction of beer (over 6% included), and a knowledgible staff. Food, the last time I checked, was aimed more towards the lunch crowd and consisted mostly of box lunches and the like. A significant portion of their profits go the Historic Matket Square Foundation, which aims to preserve Knoxvilleís downtown.

Very fun bar. Good music. Great "speakeasy" backroom to try to get into. Beer selection is about as good as it gets in Knoxville iíd imagine. Cool location

Great selection of rare beers, especially those over 6%. The atmosphere is great, but as Trappist said, it basically a hallway.

Went after Knoxville Brewers Jam and walked from hotel. Easy to find location in Market Square. Remodeled older building with bar on the middle right wall. Coolers of beers under bar and 9 taps. Freindly staff and where quick with a beer. No food but you can order from local shop and they will deliver. Good crowd during beer fest. Enjoyed the visit and will return when in the area.

Nice pub... it does get crowded if anything is going on... I like it better if itís just an afternoon before anything gets going in town. Pretty good selection of bottles... taps are a little limited, but you can still get a couple of great beers on tap usually.

Good shotgun style, downtown pub with nice selection of drafts, and one of the better selections of high ABV (6% and up) beers in bottles. Nice rooftop patio. No food, but you can bring in your own or order from nearby excellent restaurants. Noisy as hell with all close wood and brick surfaces, and gets pretty crowded after 7. Service is hit or miss. The place is pretty good for beer, but is really more about the thriving local and regional live music scene.

A popular bar on the market square with a decent beer list. Itís long and narrow with a stage at the back. There was music on when we last visited so, for the first time in many years, Iíve paid to go into a pub and had my hand stamped with ink that took several showers and hand scrubbings to get rid of. Having said that, the atmosphere was buzzing and the service was very efficient. (Last visited 5 February 2014).

A pretty homely place. Small though. Not many taps as other local bars, yet, good out of town selection that is rare for Knoxville. Also nice location being in the heart of downtown.

This is a decent place. They have a mediocre selection of regional brews and one of the best bottle selections in Knoxville. The absolute best thing about this place is $2.50 pints for happy hour with free, yes free, pizza from next door.
