A look inside Knoxville's one-stop-shop for beer

If you’re new to the craft beer scene in Knoxville, there’s someone you absolutely must meet posthaste: Zack. Zack Roskop is the unofficial champion of local beer, the guy behind Knox Brew Tours (New2Knox fave), the guitarist for Knoxville’s newest 90s and 00s cover band, (Wild and Crazy Kids), and seems to be on a mission to be friends with every person in Knoxville (we fully support this mission). Most recently, he’s added “Bar Owner” to his resume and as people who love Knoxville, beer, friendship, and 90s and 00s cover bands – we are understandably giddy about it.

Knox Brew Hub: A Look Inside

“First, we are a ‘Visitor Center’ for Knoxville beer. Second, we are the headquarters for Knox Brew Tours. Third, we’re a craft beer bar.” This is Zack’s (fairly humble, if you ask us) description of the vision for Knox Brew Hub. Knox Brew Hub is a craft beer bar, eatery, and casual launchpad of endless possibilities (no, you’re being dramatic!) for those wanting to learn about the beer they are drinking and the growing culture of craft beer in our Scruffy City.

LET’S EAT: Speaking of “eatery”, Knox Brew Hub’s not short on snackage. We’re particularly excited about popcorn flights. They have four flavors of popcorn available: cheddar, hot butter, caramel, and a rotating flavor; but if you ask nicely, the bartender will even suggest popcorn flavors based on your beer selection! Popcorn not gonna cut it? Fear not! Knox Brew Hub also houses Knox Brew Subs – mouth-watering subs, made to order just for you.

LET’S DRINK: Let’s be honest, though – the reason people flock to the Hub is for the beer. There are 22 taps and the vast majority are flowing with local brews. (Seriously, y’all. Their line-up of local beer is like no other.) As the aforementioned unofficial champion of local beer, Zack is already working on collaboration and specialty release beers that will only available at Knox Brew Hub. In true Knox Brew Tour fashion, the bartenders (fittingly called “beer guides”) will also happily provide backstory and details about any local brewery.

LET’S LEARN: Speaking of Knox Brew Tours, Knox Brew Hub will serve as the “headquarters” of Knox Brew Tours. This means visitors get ample opportunity to learn about the local beer scene here in Knoxville. Beyond the beer guides, there is also a map on the wall displaying the locations of numerous breweries throughout Knoxville, beer history that spans from 1886-present, and plenty of room to be updated with all the new breweries popping up in the coming years.

LET’S GO: This really is the “hub” for all things local beer. As Zack put it, he wanted to have a place that “will be the first stop on anyone’s beer-cation here in Knoxville.” Thankfully, KBH is located right downtown on the picturesque Union Ave (conveniently taking up residence in the old Casual Pint location) which makes it perfectly placed to be just that.

“The last 6.5 years of my life [with Knox Brew Tours] have been based on a foundation of the love of people, the love of beer, and the love of Knoxville.” Those are the same foundations for this newest venture, Knox Brew Hub… and as people who also love people, Knoxville, and beer – we may just be Knox Brew Hub’s biggest fans. In fact, we’ll probably see you there 😉
