Written on Marble City Brewing Company Stalled by Trademark Lawsuit:

Though I've recently moved away from Knoxville, I had the opportunity to meet the Marble City Brewing folks in addition to trying some pre-brewery samples of their beer.

It's a shame Marble Brewing had to resort to such tactics in order to control a loosely associated name.

I agree that the best way to voice disagreement with their effort is to not by their beer. Also, send them an email or give them a call and let them know their beer isn't welcome in Knoxville.

I don't care if they make the best IPA in the country; using bully tactics in this way is not appreciated amongst craft-beer lovers.

Glad to see they're still going!

But the best coffee in Knoxville is by far Old City Java:

Written on Rita's Bakery:

I was very impressed with the blueberry scone I got from Rita's Bakery! I also purchased a tasty looking pumpkin bread loaf that was substantial, and an excellent value at $5.

I just moved to Fountain City, and can't wait to visit this bakery again!

I believe the drink special is for happy-hour only, and not all the time every day.
