Craft Beer Week is underway, celebrating the seemingly always growing craft beer community in East Tennessee.

Beer Week offers tapping parties, tastings, and all sorts of discounts.

Knoxville has become home to a number of breweries and craft beer enthusiasts. The Bearden Beer Market built an extra room this year to accommodate larger crowds and private parties after they noticed greater interest in craft beer.

"Southeast in general, especially Knoxville and East Tennessee is seeing the most growth in our industry-- somewhere in the neighborhood of 50% year over year," said Chris Morton.

The Bearden Beer Market hosted its weekly fun run, which raised money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.
