15 Incredible Nashville Breweries to Visit

Over the past several years, we’ve seen Nashville’s beer scene grow in all the right ways. Though Nashville isn’t exactly new to the craft beer movement that is taking over the country, the steady growth of Nashville breweries has turned an already wonderful destination into something extraordinary. At Nashville breweries, you can expect to find just about everything when it comes to beer, from the hip, trendy, and creative, to steadfast traditional brews.

As the city continues to reopen and come back after what was a difficult 2020 for many local businesses, we’d love to showcase our favorite places to grab a cold pint. Here are 15 of the best Nashville Breweries that we think you should add to your itinerary the next time you’re in town.

  1. Southern Grist Brewing, known for its ambitious and creative selection of beers, is a Nashville staple among beer lovers. Beers here are anything but traditional and flavored with far-reaching flavors from exotic fruits to marshmallows.
  2. Bearded Iris Brewing, located in Nashville’s Germantown neighborhood, is perhaps one of the most popular Nashville breweries. They are best known for their dry-hopped, imperial, and double IPAs, but they do put out a regular stream of creative beers and sours as well.
  3. Jackalope Brewing Company, known by locals as “The Ranch,” offers a solid lineup of year-round beers and plenty of seasonal additions as well. They also host a regularly rotating selection of food trucks, making this a great stop to make in Nashville.
  4. With a two-story taproom and a visible production room where you can watch the magic happen, no Nashville brewery adventure is complete without a visit to Tennessee Brew Works.
  5. If you’re a fan of hoppy IPA’s, don’t miss New Heights Brewing. This spot is also home to 312 Pizza Co., a perennial Nashville favorite.
  6. Blackstone Brewing is one of the oldest Nashville breweries and is a must on your beer-laden adventure through Nashville. They also offer brewery tours for the beer-curious.
  7. Fat Bottom Brewing recently expanded into a new and much larger facility, and now offers an outdoor beer garden in addition to their taproom.
  8. Living Waters Brewing offers an incredible selection of beer – but they are also pretty well known for their coffee.  It may seem a weird combination, but it’s worked out well so far!
  9. Tailgate Brewery offers more than great beers – they produce some delicious ciders as well! There are three locations around Nashville, each one just as delicious as the next.
  10. Yazoo Brewing Company offers a great selection of year-round and limited edition beers, but their most popular and interesting is the wild ale and barrel-aging program, Embrace the Funk.
  11. Beer and pizza are perhaps the world’s most perfect combination, and you can find delicious examples of both at Smith & Lentz Brewing and Pizza.
  12. Head into the heart of downtown Nashville, and enjoy some live music, panoramic rooftop views, and a well-crafted pint of beer at Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. They have the distinction of being the only brewery on Broadway!
  13. For a delicious taste of local and seasonal ingredients translated into a pint of beer, head to Harding House Brewing in The Nations. Their Saisons are consistently a favorite.
  14. If you’ve ever wondered what wild ales fermented in oak barrels taste like, head to one of the newest Nashville Breweries, Barrique Brewing and Blending. 
  15. For a classic selection of beer and nothing too terribly crazy, but still plenty delicious, head to Yee-Haw Brewing. While you’re there, don’t miss their Moonshine tasting – it’s a treat!

As great as these Nashville breweries are, Nashville isn’t a city light on bars and great places to enjoy a craft beer.  A few of the best beer bars in Nashville include The Filling Station, Hops & Crafts, The Pub, Vinyl Tap, The Pharmacy Burger Parlor & Beer Garden, and Butchertown Hall.
