Cheers! A Guide to Nashville’s Breweries & Taprooms

Calling all beer lovers! Get ready to celebrate National Beer Lovers Day on September 7th at one of our many local breweries or taprooms in and around Nashville.  Better yet, spend the next few weeks making your way through our list to find your favorite establishment, and it’ll help you decide where to celebrate National Drink Beer Day on September 28th.

Check a few off your list by visiting Yazoo Brewing Company, Jackalope Brewing Company, Tennessee Brew Works, and Czann’s Brewing Company in what’s known as Nashville’s Brewery District, located in the SoBro and Gulch area. Also centrally located are New Heights Brewing, TailGate Brewery Music Row, and Hops & Crafts.

On the west side of town, you’ll find Blackstone Brewing Company, Turtle Anarchy Brewing Company, Fat Bottom Brewing, the original TailGate Brewery, and Southern Grist Brewing Co.

On the east side are TailGate Brewery East Nashville, Smith & Lentz Brewing, East Nashville Beer Works, Southern Grist Brewing Co., Little Harpeth Brewing, and Homegrown Taproom and Marketplace in Donelson.

The north side has Bearded Iris Brewing in Germantown and HonkyTonk Brewing Co. in Metro Center.

Beyond Nashville:

Do a good deed by drinking beer.

What?!  You read that right. As you’re making your way through our list, look for Randy’s IPA by Jubilee Craft Beer Company, who donates a whopping 50% of its proceeds to the Oasis Center to help Nashville’s at-risk youth. You might find it at several of the taprooms listed above, as well as other restaurants and grocery stores around Nashville.

Now, calling all the very serious, highly experienced beer connoisseurs! If you have already visited every single establishment on our list, let us know, and we’ll send you a year’s supply of … just kidding.  We will send you a Living Local Nashville sticker!

About the Author

My wife and I live in Donelson, where we both were raised and graduated from high school (DCA Classes of 1983 and 1984).  Our current home is on the Cumberland River, very close to my childhood home and the former homes of both my McDonald and Rice grandparents.

Our daughter and son are grown now, and our daughter, Stephanie Miller, is my real estate partner.  She lives in Lebanon with her husband and their two children.  While Stephanie and I specialize in the areas of Downtown Nashville, Donelson, Hermitage, Old Hickory, Mt. Juliet and Lebanon, we have and do serve clients all over Middle Tennessee.

As a Nashville native, I’ve spent a lifetime watching our city evolve, and I am enthusiastic about showcasing it to others and serving their real estate needs.
