One of the many great things about living in Knoxville is the blooming brewery scene. It’s been a couple of years since I wrote about our own, self guided Knoxville Brewery Tour, and the beer scene has gotten even better since then. I wanted to create a Knoxville TN Brewery Guide to help you decide which brewery (or breweries) you want to visit. If you want to book a brewery tour, check out Knox Brew Tours.
