Yee-Haw Brewing Co. will soon have a second location in East Tennessee. The company, which opened its first craft brewery and taproom in the historic Tweetsie railroad depot in July 2015, is opening a new facility in Pigeon Forge.

In a statement released earlier this week, Yee-Haw officials said the new experimental brewery and 2,275-square-foot taproom will open in mid June at 131 Island Drive next to Ole Smoky Moonshine. The location will offer an extensive line of merchandise, food and up to 20 taps that will serve all Yee-Haw  products.

The Pigeon Forge location will be the first to offer Yee-Haw’s expanded line of large format bottles of bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey aged beers.

Live bluegrass music will also be performed daily on a stage just outside the taproom.

“We are excited to be a part of the already great offering for the millions of visitors to The Island in Pigeon Forge,” Yee-Haw owner Joe Baker said in a news release. “The atmosphere of quality music and other great attractions is the perfect place for us to showcase our brand and introduce guests to some of the great beer being brewed here in Tennessee.”

Baker said the Pigeon Forge expansion “should allow us to add another 30 or so team members at a location where we should see a lot of craft beer fans excited to learn about our brand.”

Yee-Haw has also announced it will be opening new physical locations in Nashville and Greenville, South Carolina, later this year.
