Clinch River Brewing – Norris

Welcome to the only Craft Brewery in Anderson County, TN. Our craft brewery, small tap room and beer garden are set to open September 8, 2017.  Hours of Operation:

Friday 4-9

Saturday 2-9

Sunday 2-9

Join us for a delicious, creative brew and light fare at one of East Tennessee’s most beautiful locations. Only twenty minutes from downtown Knoxville, in historic Norris, TN, just below Norris Lake and Norris Dam, nestled into the hills of the 2700 acre Norris Watershed and trails, and directly across the street from the Clinch River, offering the best trout fishing in the Southeast.

Our unique location was former home to the TVA Aquatics Laboratory, and full of local lore, mysteries, and a grand amount of history. Browse a bit at the Appalachia Outdoor Center, rent a kayak or canoe, hit the trails by hoof or bike, or simply contemplate the rainbow trout in the pond, sip a brew and be thankful for life!

As a way to honor the incredible talent of the craft beer industry in the area we offer guest taps as well as our own in-house hand crafted beer selection by Jordan Skeen (Head Brewer) and Alex Shirey (Asst Brewer/Mgr).  Knoxville local legend and our resident hero, Chef Brandon Cruze will continuously surprise your  palate with his unique creations that just beg to be shared with a fresh beer from the brewery.

NOTE: Google Maps works better at finding our unique location than Maps. When all else fails follow the signs for Rt 441 and Norris Dam. It is well worth the trek!
