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.

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.

nearbeer  (236) 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.

Suttree  (207) Knoxville, Tennessee | February 4, 2004| Updated May 12, 2013
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.

markwise  (199) North of Tampa, Florida | March 25, 2008
Not bad, but I’m from Florida. The guy behind the counter recommneded Aiko Pale Lager as his favorite beer. It was disgusting swill, so he lost a LOT of credibility with me. They had almost no DFH in stock on a Saturday night, but lots of Stone, which we do not have in FL (Muchas Gracias). Best one can do with wacky TN liquor laws.

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.

lithy  (156) Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania | April 2, 2009
Best beer selection in Knoxville, can get a little pricy, as much due to Tennessee laws as anything though. Brent and the staff mostly know their stuff on some of the beers. The wall of scotch constantly tempts me to spend more than I should.

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 don’t want to haul beer! (I guess I wouldn’t want to distribute my competition either) Ditto what haddon90 said. Ask for Brent (mickblueeyes)

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.

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.
