Tennessee Cider Company
Tennessee Cider Company is the first cidery to set up shop in Gatlinburg. Surrounded by the mountains that hold and defend a spirit, far better than moonshine. Our hard ciders hold flavor that will have you coming back for more. Crafted by local folk and served by local friends. Serving free sips daily to give you a little taste of the fresh cider we are pourin’. Conveniently located on the Parkway in Gatlinburg, come on in and try some of the good stuff.
If you haven’t tried hard cider, come by the cidery for free samples on tap. Go for classic cider or flavors like watermelon, apple spice, pineapple, pumpkin spice, blueberry and caramel apple. Flavors change to follow the seasons, so you might find new treats whenever you visit. Sit a while and sip a glass of cider, or take home a refillable, 32-ounce “growler” jug filled with your favorite flavor.
Gatlinburg Brewing Company
Gatlinburg Brewing Company serves its beers with a side of family atmosphere and a dash of live music. Want to know what’s on tap when you visit? This local brewery updates its “tap list” weekly online so you always know which brews await you. IPAs, cream ales, porters, stouts, lagers and much more (like Tennessee hard cider) turn up every week.
A menu of beer-lovers’ favorites includes delicious pizzas with a huge range of toppings. Try classic appetizers like chicken wings, hot pretzels with beer cheese and specialty breadsticks. Taste the “hot sticks” with jalapeno peppers and red pepper, if you dare!
Smoky Mountain Brewery
The Smoky Mountain Brewery restaurant’s atmosphere is a cross between a ski lodge and a Bavarian beer hall, so get ready to relax and catch up with friends. Sit on the enclosed deck, where your view is the Smoky Mountains nearby.
Handcrafted microbrews are the stars of the drinks list. Try a sampler of as many as 10 beers. Or choose from more than three dozen wines or the wide range of bourbons and whiskeys. The menu features hearty appetizers, sandwiches, hand-tossed pizzas and entrees including BBQ ribs and ale-marinated steaks.
While you sip, listen to live music, or play a live team trivia game! The Gatlinburg location features karaoke, so you can belt out your favorite tunes like a star. In football seasons, come watch NFL games.
The Pigeon Forge location is in Lumberjack Square, the Smoky Mountain Brewery is convenient to both the Parkway and Wears Valley Road. Once inside, you’ll find a state of the art microbrewery that provides the perfect escape from the fast paced environment of Pigeon Forge. Situated between traffic lights 2B and 3 at Wears Valley Intersection.
