4 of Nashville’s Best Breweries
Each of Nashville’s breweries has its own distinct style and vibe; no two taprooms here are the same. Whether you like easy sippers or hoppy brews, there’s no doubt Nashville’s best breweries have something you’ll enjoy.
Tennessee Brew Works
Since 2013, Tennessee Brew Works has provided Tennesseans with a wide range of craft beers. While they specialize in European styles, they also offer IPAs, American ales, and more. Plus, for the non-beer drinkers, there is wine, cider, and cocktails available, as well as food. Tennessee Brew Works features live music from local artists on a nearly nightly basis, providing a lively soundtrack perfect for an evening of drinking and good times.
Southern Grist Brewing
With two taprooms, you have a couple of options for visiting Southern Grist Brewing. This is the go-to spot for bold flavors and unique brews. For example, you can find beers inspired by mimosas, cheesecake, and more on their constantly rotating tap list. Both taprooms have a great, friendly atmosphere, perfect for socializing. If you’re interested in a unique dining experience, head to Lauter, their food concept in East Nashville.
Yazoo Brewing Company
One of the original Nashville breweries, Yazoo Brewing Company first started in 2003. Today, Yazoo is located in Madison, right outside Nashville. However, it is worth the short trip from the city to check out their great taproom and award-winning beer. They have seating indoors and outdoors, allowing you to take advantage of the nice weather in the warmer months. Want to see how they brew their beer? They also offer brewery tours.
Living Waters Brewing
Another East Nashville favorite, Living Waters Brewing is a unique concept, offering beer and coffee. Yep, you read that right, coffee; you probably didn’t expect a brewery to be serving up delicious coffee, but their coffee bar is not to be missed. Whether you come for a beer or a cup of joe, Living Waters Brewing’s warm and welcoming atmosphere ensures you’re in for a pleasant experience.

Experience Music in the Music City
They call Nashville the Music City for a reason; musical talent is abundant here. While Nashville is synonymous with country music, you can frequently hear rock, gospel, and other genres as well. You can find fantastic live music throughout the city on a daily basis, and in many cases, it’s free at the local honky-tonks.
Nashville’s most famous music venue is the Grand Ole Opry, which is nearing 100 years old. The Grand Ole Opry is the premier destination for country music fans; countless legends have graced the stage over the years. You can typically find a rocking concert at the Grand Ole Opry from Tuesday through Sunday.
Attend a Game
All of Nashville looks forward to the fall when the local football and hockey teams begin to play, and you can get in on the fun by attending a game. The Tennessee Titans, the city’s NFL team, play at Nissan Stadium. The open-air stadium allows attendees to enjoy the crisp fall weather while also cheering on the home team with nearly 70,000 other fans.
For hockey fanatics, checking out a Nashville Predators game is a must. The atmosphere at Bridgestone Arena is phenomenal and features quirky fan traditions like throwing catfish on the ice. Even if you aren’t a fan of the Titans or Predators, attending a game is still a blast.
Indulge in Nashville’s Signature Dish
If you’re feeling a little cool from Nashville’s fall climate, there’s an easy way to warm up: Nashville hot chicken. Today, you can find Nashville hot chicken throughout the U.S., but nowhere does it better than Nashville. Nashville hot chicken originated nearly 100 years ago in Nashville at Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, but you can find it in countless restaurants around the city. Be warned; this dish can be quite spicy, so be prepared to deal with some heat.
