Jeff of Marble Brewing sent me this "letter" after I e-mailed him about my disagreeing with his lawsuit: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&am...
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.

I understand the gist of the story. And I have every bit of confidence that if a business produces a great product backed by equally great customer service, they will survive the financial crisis at hand.
I wish well both of the shops mentioned.
That said, I believe Old City Java to be the best coffee shop in Knoxville.
I wrote about Blackbird on its opening day on the Knoxville-centric blog Knoxify (http://knoxify.com) a while back: http://knoxify.com/knoxvilles-blackbi...
Glad to see they're still going!
But the best coffee in Knoxville is by far Old City Java: http://knoxify.com/knoxvilles-best-co...
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.
The site looks awesome folks! You did a great job in translating your already great content to the Web.
I'm looking forward to where you take it from here!
