Local Business Spotlight: Homegrown Taproom & Marketplace

Homegrown Taproom & Marketplace Donelson

Ask the Donelson locals where their neighborhood hangout is, and many will tell you it’s Homegrown Taproom & Marketplace.

Some regulars are even driving in from other areas just to hang out at Homegrown and catch a game on TV, listen to some live music or play in the dart league.

Locally sourced comfort food

The food menu offers comfort foods like meatloaf and mashed potatoes, shrimp and grits, creamy tomato basil soup, and custom grilled cheese sandwiches, and as much as possible, Homegrown sources ingredients from local and regional producers.

Craft beer

The craft beer selection is just as impressive, with about two dozen taps of beer and cider, sourced primarily from brewers in the Southeast.

Friendly atmosphere

There’s no doubt that the food and beer (and our favorite Pandora playlist in all of Nashville) keep Homegrown in our regular rotation, but perhaps what we’ve come to love most about Homegrown is the warm and relaxed vibe, knowing we’ll be greeted with a friendly welcome every time.

Visit Homegrown yourself and you’ll see why it didn’t take long for us to become regular “Homies” as their customers are referred to. Better yet, give me a call and I’ll meet you over there!

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.
