KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The revival of a beer to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Knoxville World's Fair was only meant to be on the market for six months. But heavy demand has brewers considering making it a permanent offering.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports the original World's Fair Beer was introduced surrounding the 1982 event that featured the 266-foot Sunsphere as its centerpiece.

The Knoxville event was the first world's fair to be held in the Southeast, and then-President Ronald Regan spoke at the opening. The fair brought to town the London Symphony, Japan's Kabuki Theater and Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos and his wife, Imelda.

World's Fair visitors had a say about another beverage, giving the thumbs up to a canned and bottled Cherry Coke that came on the market three years later.
