Local brewers are part of a group putting on "Quad Cities Craft Beer Week."
There are a handful of breweries in this area, teaming up to provide specials and samples and to increase awareness about these special brews, typically made by independent and passionate craftsmen.
It's something organizers say is good for locals and attracts tourists at the same time.
"There's a huge tourist following for this around the country, it's growing," Director Kyle Carter said. "Locally brewed beer is becoming a larger and larger percentage of local beer sales across the country, and why we wouldn't want to capture part of that tourism is beyond me."
