Hundreds of Tennessee beer brewers and fans came together for the state's first ever brewers' summit.
They spent part of the night discussing the future of craft beer in the state.
The summit is the first fundraiser for the Tennessee Craft Brewer's Guild.
Brewers' summit coordinator Stephanie Carson says the guild is looking to promote legislation to encourage the growth of craft beer in Tennessee.
"In Tennessee, if beer is above 6.2% it's considered liquor and it's sold under liquor laws. So, here in the world of craft beer now, many of their beers are above 6.2%, and it prohibits them from being sold in traditional stores and through a distributor in a traditional way, so we're literally limiting the growth of craft beer in Tennessee," explained Carson.
Due in part to those restrictions, Tennessee only has about 25 craft beer breweries, which is about half that of Asheville.
