Default EdWort heading to Tennessee

I'm off to Tennessee today to visit the in-laws for Christmas in the Smokey Mountains (They have a cabin in Sevierville). SWMBO and I will be in Gatlinburgh to visit the Smokey Mountain Brewery for a few beers. We make take in a beer in Knoxville if we can find a brew pub there.

Any suggestions for this area?

I was up there a few years ago and stopped by this place:

Smoky Mountain Brewery

It was before I got into serious beer snobbery so I can't really comment on exactly how good the beer it since its been a while. Its the only one that I know of in the area though. If you stop by, report back so I know if its any good.

Have a great trip!

Neal

The Smokey Mountain Brewery had a good pale ale and helles last year when we went. And they have something like 32 oz mugs! Enjoy and if you eat there get the cheese steak - it was great.

Well after a very long drive, we made it to the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee from Texas. My Tahoe Z71 averaged almost 19 miles per gallon and we tanked up as low as $1.44 a gallon.

The Christmas Stash is setup and mighty tasty. This batch of Apfelwein turns 9 months old on Christmas Eve.



We're heading to Gatlinburg tonight for wings/pizza & brew at the Smokey Mountain Brewery.

Ya'll have a safe and Merry Christmas!

Wow I bet it's quite beautiful up there this time of year! Especially after a few pints of Apfelwein!

Have a nice time

I was in the Smokey Mountains at the end of the summer. The SM Brewery had some decent brews. I thought their pale ale and porter were pretty good. Their food is pretty good as well. They let me give myself a self guided tour in their brewery which was pretty cool.

Not sure if you're into old Detroit iron, but Floyd Garrett's Musclecar Museum is right down the street.

Ed Wort, sneak east on 40, and north on I-81 for about an hour & a half & come have a brew with me!

I reccomend the Tuchlahatchee (how ever you spell it) Porter.

Also they have a SMB behind Calhouns in G'berg, and also another location in Pigen Forge/Severeville (sp). The other one is across the road frm the helicopter museum (which sucks).

Calhouns has a decent menu, and other than that, good luck in Gatlinburg.

OGH!!! yeah... um....in I think its craftsmans village there is a pretty good English Pub.

I'm sorry, I can't remember the name, but its in the first group of buildings you come to in the village.

The village is called "the Village" how ironic.
Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community Area Gatlinburg TN EVERY Shop, Restaurant And MORE

Here is the place I lost a few afternoons while SWMBO shopped:
Jareds Grill At The Ship Gatlinburg TN (865) 430-4441
thier pizza is great.

the Pub is the Fox & Parrot Tavern
Fox And Parrot Tavern Gatlinburg TN (865) 436-0677
Been to this one, but don't remember!

Enjoy Ed!!!

Oh yeah that's a good place to stop in as well. I still have the owner's card in my wallet. SWMBO and I ditched her family and went for a drive and found this place. It's an English pub sort of. Lots of breweriana on the walls and soccer games on TV. Even had a beer engine at the bar. The owner runs the bar and kitchen himself. He also homebrews. We hung out with him and a couple of his loyal, German customers for an hour or so. The place was dead but it was a nice experience.

.....maybe it was the fox & parrot that I spent a few days. SWMBO swears its was the Ship, but I don't know.

Owner was a homebrewer & a complete beer nut. We sampled several beers not on the menu. I "lived" there while SWMBO shoped and my bill was only for the food I ate.

I dunno, Edwort...care to go check them both out & report back to us?
