Best selection of high gravity beer in Knoxville. Had to alter the score just a tad. Needs more German beer but I understand they can only get in whats available. Wish they would bring back Brewdog.

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 dont even have al that though, its ok

nearbeer  (245) Knoxville, Tennessee | April 11, 2007| Updated March 31, 2017
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). Frequently rotating staff is evidently underpaid and may or may not know anything about beer. They often get some rarer stuff in that isnt available even in other parts of the country, but its mostly European and many times way out of date, so make sure its an age worthy brew. They do have 25 rotating tap selections for growler and half growler fills that are among the best prices in town.

tronraner  (109) Walland, Tennessee | August 11, 2006
Typical TN high-alcohol selection, with a handful of things I havent seen elsewhere (e.g., Baladin). Lately (summer 2006) their beer selection seems to have increased somewhat. Ill usually stop by if Im out in Cedar Bluff, but dont usually make a special trip.

NachlamSie  (772) Denver, Colorado | January 14, 2006| Updated September 8, 2016
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  (103) Boston, Massachusetts | February 14, 2005
What they have is fine. Its 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.

The staff is indeed friendly and knowledgeable, but the selection is not as good as Ashes 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 elses 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.
