Interesting place, though the owner was just arrested for drug trafficking. Decent selection of beers for Knoxville. And, as NachlamSie said, free pizza is available during happy hour (but be quick, each pie dissappears almost immediately). The major drawback is the layout. When it gets busy, it is almost impossible to get around the bar because it is so close to the booths along the weall. And if a band is playing, it takes a battle to get to the restrooms.
I liked this place quite a bit. The selection wasn’t as big as I could have hoped, bu the beers that they had were ones that I rarely expect to see in a pub type location. Stone and Delerium along wirh Lucifer are generally at places with a much larger selection. Their manager or owner must have some taste. A decent college-esque crowd, and live music even on a Tuesday night. I will go again.
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.
With a few more taps this place would be one of the better ones in Knoxville. Good selection of beers, but food is not available (go down the street and bring it in). Can be noisy when a band is in and the place is full,
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.

Named "One of America’s 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 Knoxville’s downtown.
