Knoxville Brewfest draws large crowd

More than 250 beers from 80 different breweries came together in downtown Knoxville on Saturday for the Knoxville Brewfest.

100 percent of the proceeds went to Cure Duchenne. Martin Daniel, the organizer for the event says the cause hits close to home. His son suffers from duchenne.

It was also a day for local businesses to get a boost.

Owner of Last Days of Autumn Brewery, Michael Frede, says they got a lot of exposure.

"There's a lot of people who don't know where we are located yet. So a lot of people who enjoy craft at this festival don't know where we are at so this will help us out a lot," said Frede.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is the most common fatal genetic disorder in childhood. It affects 1 out of 3,500 boys.
