Default Smokey Mountain Brewery Gatlinburg

We just got back from a week long vacation in Gatlinburg Tennessee. Smokey Mountain Brewery is always the first restaurant we go to. I like to start with a samplers platter of 6 beers. They usually have 9 beers on their regular menu plus a seasonal special, which was a winter warmer this week. So I start with 6 beers and they place them on a place mat with a brief description of each beer. I ordered a real tender sirloin steak that was somehow infused with a garlic butter. Then for dessert, a 32 ounce mug of my favorite brew.

We have micro breweries in Georgia, but there are none close to my house. Going to Smokey Mountain Brewery once a year is always a treat. On this trip, I only made it there one night for dinner. Two other nights we went in pretty late for a couple 32 ounce beers. I have had their steaks, ribs, pizza, cheese steak sandwiches, and of course, their beers. Good place!

Going down there in July with another couple and our kids (9mos and 3 mos current ages). I plan on stopping in for a tour. Hoping to get in on a brew day and assist, but have to wait and call when we're down there to find out if we can.

We go to Tn every summer to visit my family in Maryville, we are heading there in July. We always head up to splash country and Gatlinburg, is this place new? I assume it is on the main drag there in town? Can't wait to break away from the family and toss back a few beers!

No, it is not on the main drag. About traffic light three, going north, you turn right at that resteraunt that has the torches out front. It almost looks like just an entrance to a parking lot, but when you go in a little ways you see lots of other little shops and the two story brewery up a little ways on the right.

When in July will you be there. I'm going to try and get a tour/Possible assist on a brew day while I'm their. If you want and will be there the same time I'm taking a laptop and you could come too.

I'll be out that way tomorrow; hopefully I'll have time enough to stop in.

Edit:

Okay, I'm sitiing here at the bar as I type. I've tried 4 of the beers (of 9) so far, and they're decent but no stand-outs so far. More later.

Edit again:

The porter was decent, the pale ale was good but unbalanced, the winter warmer was good, I had one sip of the light lager and didn't finish it (just personal preference), and everything else was passable. If I had ordered something else, it would have been the pale ale.

Yeah, I enjoyed the Pale the most I think. That and the red. If we ever go back to Gatlinburg (some one drags me kicking and screaming) I wouldn't waste my time stopping back. The staff barely speaks English (foreign exchange program mostly from The Ukraine and like countries) to the point where not only can you not ask them anything about the beer, but my wife had a hell of a time requesting cheese on her sandwhich period and gave up trying to request a different cheese besides whatever the hell they decided to put on it.
