Tennessee Brew Works to celebrate their first birthday this Friday.
Tennessee Brew Works, in the heart of the Nashville Brewery District, is ready to celebrate their first complete year of operation making “finely tuned craft beer.” It has been an eventful first year since brewing that first beer in an old 21,000 square foot print shop at 809 Ewing, just south of Lafayette, between Sixth and Seventh. The renovation of the site and property was massive and actually included structural renovations to accommodate a two story taproom/restaurant and the “garage door” style slide up window walls.
To be sure, the time and effort was well worth it. Coming out of the gate with Opening Act, the beer was spot on great right from the start. When the taproom, independently known as the Tennessee TapRoom, was finally opened on Oct. 31 last year, they have enjoyed a steady stream of new, and subsequently regular, customers. With a great cross section of diverse beers to sample, and exemplary service from the owners and staff, they continue to excel.
The celebration will be this Friday, Aug. 15, and will run from 4:00 to 10:00 p.m. Now their standard hours for Friday, and Thursday for that matter, run from 4:00 to 8:00, so that is an extra two hours of party time. And to finish the hours information, they are also open Saturday from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m., and Sunday from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.
As for the party, these guys know how to throw a great one. Most recently they hosted a block party at the end of Nashville Craft Beer Week where they closed off the street, had several vendors, and, of course, live music, at this certified Live Music Venue. The birthday party will be confined to the huge Tennessee TapRoom, will again feature live music, and the showcase will be some special release craft beers. I’m not sure how much I’m supposed to say and/or divulge, but here a couple thoughts to specially entice you to come join the party; sour beer, Four Roses barrel aged. There. I said it. Oh yeah, the new Sessions Blonde.
Now, I don’t know how they have the time to go out and sell this great beer, but after only one year you can enjoy their finely tuned craft beer at over 75 locations including bars, restaurants, and growler fill stations in and around Nashville, where they also self-distribute. Wears me out just thinking about it. If that wasn’t enough, they’ve partnered with some major middle Tennessee distributors such as Mid-South. Through those outlets their beer is also on tap at over 50 additional locations.
Finally, a quick note on the Nashville Brewery District. First coined right here July 9, 2013, it was in an article announcing that Tennessee Brew Works was to open. With that, four breweries were open in a relatively straight line connecting the Gulch and SoBro. So far the breweries include Yazoo Brewing Company, Jackalope Brewing Company, Czann’s, and of course Tennessee Brew Works. If you keep up with these articles, you also know that they all now have taprooms open with the recent addition of Czann’s Taprom.
So get out this Friday and tour the Nashville Brewery District. Then, make a special point of stopping by the Tennessee TapRoom to celebrate one year of great craft beer.
Time for a pint. Cheers!
