Bearden Beer Market

Beer Garden in Knoxville

Part beer garden, part beer store, this no-frills place in western Knoxville epitomizes the best of Scruffy City. The 'garden' – dotted with various tables and chairs on cracked concrete slabs – is tucked tight behind the tiny craft-beer shop. It's all a little downtrodden, but the upbeat folks drinking here on a lazy Saturday afternoon don't mind a lick.
