Well, The beers here were not the best in the world, but i guess its better than Bud. Food was extremely greasy. Had to use a napkin on the pizza. I did enjoy the chance to try new beers and they prices were reasonable

Just like Gatlinburg, just not as cozy but with one more beer on tap.

This place isnít too bad. I had their pale ale which was pretty solid for what it is. Also tried their baclk bear ale which was decent. Their food is better than their beer.

One of the better SMB locations as far as beer selection. Has the full 8 beer lineup at this visit, only missing the nitro stout. Calzone was mediocre. Service was ok, nice building on a pedestrian only square.

Another location in the regional chain, but this one seems to be a bit more of a sports bar setting. Beers and service are pretty much the same as at all their locations - pretty average to occasionally lousy. The best thing you can say about all the SMB and Calhounís locations is: at least they only charge $2 a pint.

Just ok food and average beers doesnít make this place a winner in my book. The IPA is decent but Iíd pass on almost all of the rest. Prices are decent.

Definitely a more comfortable setting than the Gatlinburg brewery. Itís pretty laid back, even when busy, and there are televisions freakiní everywhere. Happy hour is a good deal, and the food is reasonable. The beer can be hit or miss, but thereís some decent enough stuff to sit down for a few pints. Oh, they have wine and other beers, too, if you would want that for some reason.

Easy to find location on a corner of strip mall on side road. Clean inside with square wood bar on left and tables on right. Brewing operations behind glass behind tables. Freindly service with good knowledge of selection of 8 taps on the day I was there. All beers average drinkable. Good food menu and the small pizza was a good portion and very good spicy flavor. I enjoyed the visit.

This is the better of the two locations in Sevier County. Itís newer and isnít falling apart. The bar is better staffed and arranged to provide more efficient service while being seated here. The manager is a great guy and he always keeps me up to date on seasonals and special offerings when he can. This is about the only place to get an actual beer in Pigeon Forge/Sevierville and itís also the cheapest. Happy hour = pints for less than $2.00 and theyíre normally around $3.50. Thatís quite low for this tourist town. The beer isnít anything to be excited about, itís mostly German style lagers and the like, but it is really nice to have a little taste of beer culture in this hillbilly tourist trap. Oh, by the way, Iíve noticed that their bottling process or perhaps bottle storage isnít so great. Most of the beers have a noticeable deteriation in quality when served from the bottle, and weíre not exactly starting with the best beer in America in the first place. If I want to hit a bar at night in Sevier county, this is the only option.
