Sevier County is Not a Dry County...
Funny. Sevier County used to be considered "dry". 

(Except for the local moonshiners)

Trust me, that is no longer the case. You can get a drink with food at many of the restaurants, pubs, bars, distilleries, wineries, breweries and clubs around town.

***Please drink responsibly***

Call ahead to confirm details, times, bands, parties, etc.
