Bearded Iris – Sylvan Supply
The original Bearded Iris is home to Germantown, but they just opened their doors to a new, hip spot in Sylvan Park’s Sylvan Supply. Serving up one of Nashville’s haziest IPAs—the Homestyle—Bearded Iris has quickly earned its rank as one of the city’s top spots to grab a beer that won’t disappoint. The Sylvan Supply taproom will soon feature a ramen spot, courtesy of Black Dynasty Secret Ramen House.

Step back in time when you walk through Bold Patriot’s doors. This historic, patriotic taproom honors America’s heritage with weekly “History Nights” and their “Bold Patriot Institute” Facebook group. Their new taproom is located in Sylvan Park’s L&L Market, and they’ve got a long list of traditional ales and IPAs on draft.

Yee-Haw Brewing Co.
Yee-Haw is located in Nashville’s new 6th & Peabody, which is a spacious and lively beer garden featuring a distillery, bars, tasting areas, merch, big screen TVs, and live entertainment. Enjoy Yee-Haw on draft while catching the game on Nashville’s largest indoor TV screen! 6th & Peabody is the official viewing party for the Titans—that is, if you’re not going to the game at Nissan stadium! Yee-Haw has something for every palette, from cervezas to Oktoberfest and their “Easy Does It.”

Barrique Brewing & Blending
A new concept to Nashville, Barrique Brewing & Blending specializes in unique open fermented, blended/fruited sour beers, as well as your traditional lagers, English beers, and IPAs. If you’re a beer snob who loves niche craft beer, then Barrique is going to be your new favorite hideout. Featuring barrel-aged lagerbiers and funky sours, Barrique is the kind of place you’ll want to tell your friends about—or keep a secret.

Crazy Gnome Brewery
The best brewers begin as home-brewers, and Crazy Gnome Brewery is the place to be if you want to taste the spirit of originality. Their founder, Grayson, started brewing beer at age 20 and has pursued a decade long obsession with brewing. Ready to open a taproom in East Nashville—Grayson had to put his dream on hold a little longer due to the tornado that hit the neighborhood in March 2020. The dream was delayed once again due to the stay at home order just after the tornado. Finally Grayson was able to open Crazy Gnome Brewery and turn his dream into reality.

Jackalope Brewing – The Ranch
While Jackalope Brewing’s newest location, The Ranch, has been open for a bit now, the Wedgewood-Houston neighboorhood is continuing to grow with new small businesses. If you haven’t had a chance to explore “WeHo,” we recommend hitting up The Ranch first to enjoy their spacious, dog-friendly patio. Jackalope is one of Nashville’s earliest breweries and their classic beers remain favorites among locals and routine visitors. Their Lovebird, a strawberry raspberry wheat, and their Bearwalker, a maple brown ale, are arguably the most popular!

Southern Grist – The Nations
Another up and coming neighborhood, the Nations, is home to Southern Grist’s newest location. With a good mix of Belgians, sours, dark beers, lagers, and even vintage bottles, Southern Grist is the place to go if you want to try it all. They’ve even got seltzers on tap! This family-friendly brewery has a relaxing pet-friendly patio when the weather is nice.

TailGate – East
Though TailGate has been a local favorite since 2014, their newest location in East Nashville is something special. Their third taproom is home to TailGate’s wild and spontaneous fermentation project, an intimate atmosphere, and a scratch pizza kitchen. Serving up wild, barrel-aged creations and small-batch experimental beers quarterly, there’s always something new and funky to try.
Check out TailGate here.
Fat Bottom Brewing Co.
Another long-time Nashville favorite, Fat Bottom Brewing Co. has expanded over the years. Their new location is in The Nations. Their taproom, dubbed The Hop Yard, features a massive beer garden great for bringing the whole family—including the dogs! The taproom is home to The Reserve, a private event venue—because if you love beer this much, you might as well get married at a brewery.
