Here Are Our 4 Favorite Breweries in Nashville, TN
Tennessee Brew Works
Tennessee Brew Works features an excellent selection of both year-round headliner beers and seasonal brews. Try their smooth Southern Wit for easy drinking or the 1927 India Pale Ale if you prefer beer with a bite. Seasonal beers here consist of blonde ales, brown ales, and an American wheat ale. Pair your beer choice one of their food items like the Baja fish tacos or five beer burger for the full TBW experience! This spot also offers brewery tours every Saturday at 3 p.m., 4 p.m., and 5 p.m. You can book a tour online, which concludes with a free pint of fresh craft beer!
Jackalope Brewing Company
With eight craft brews to choose from, Jackalope Brewing Company has a beer to satisfy any taste. Looking for something on the lighter and sweeter side? The “Lovebird” is a crisp wheat brew that contains nearly two hundred pounds of strawberries and raspberries in each barrel. For something a bit hoppier, try Fennerio, Jackalope’s newest IPA. Jackalope Brewing Company also hosts exciting events throughout the year. We recommend joining in the fun every Thursday for trivia night! You can also catch food trucks here throughout the week for some of the best local cuisine.
12 South Taproom
12 South Taproom is hands-down one of the best breweries in Nashville, TN! First, this spot offers one of the longest beer lists in Music City. Here, you’ll be able to choose from 28 draft beers including local picks like East Nashville Beer Works’ Pale Wheat Cumberland Punch and Boulevard’s Jam Band Fruit Ale. The culinary prowess of head chef and owner Will Shuff also shows in the Taproom’s grass-fed Tennessee beef and local organic produce. The menu features a diverse spectrum of savory bites. Whether you’re craving a pulled pork taco, quesadilla, juicy burger, or gourmet sandwich, you’ll find something to pair with your craft brew.
Yazoo Brewing Company
If there’s one name in brewing that everyone and their brother knows in Nashville, it’s Yazoo Brewing Company! Since 2003, brewmaster Linus Hall has graced this southern staple with innovative beers and led the burgeoning Music City microbrew movement.
