1. Don’t get too close
2. Don’t try and feed them
3. Do not run
4. Do not play dead
5. Walk backward slowly.....unless the bear is behind you.
6. Once in a safe spot, make fun of the stupid bear.

Is Saworks still in business?
Nope, it's been gone for a few years and the end wasn't pretty to say the least.

I'd say that the two best craft breweries in Knoxville are Crafty Bastard and Last Days of Autumn, while Downtown Grill & Brewery makes its own more general beer that's excellent as well. In terms of a beer bar, your best option is easily Suttree's on Gay St.

Downtown grill had some good brews. You could actually get types that weren't just different terrible IPAs.

Downtown Grill and Brewery's beer is excellent? Yeah, your judgement is terrible in more than just politics...
