Just happened upon this place while passing through and getting a room at the Choo-Choo hotel a block away. The service was excellent and the beers good as well. Nice vegetarian options on the menu which was a nice surprise. Would definitely go back here if ever in the area again.

Had a sampler of their beers. They were all good beers. I am not a big fan of Scottish ales but theirs is not overly malty. The Maibock and Witbier were also good. My favorite was the Magnum P.A. (think Magnum P.l.). While I don't like all Cascadian Dark Ales(Black IPA), theirs is dark without being real roasty. A nice balance of hops. The Oatmeal stout is roasty for the style but very well done.

The John Deereman lunch plate was a nice combination of cheeses, fruits (strawberry, apple, grapes), meat(italian sausage, pepperoni), stuffed pepperocinis, and crackers/bread. It was all I needed for a meal.
The server (Leslie) was very friendly and helplful for a first time visitor to Chattanooga.

My daughter plays travel softball and fortunately for me Chattanooga hosts several tournaments each summer and I get to go to Terminal Brewhouse. The building has a lot of history. It was a train terminal as well as a house of ill repute. The menue is one of the best in the downtown area. We enjoy the stuffed sandwiches that are huge and well worth the below $10 price. They have a good selection of the beer that they brew. My favorite is the Magnum P.A. I always get a growler or 2 to go while I am there.

My favorite little brewpub in Chattanooga. A multistory building, with each level being a kind of balcony looking down onto the shiny brass brew kettles, it has a lot of class without being snooty. Their selection of beers changes seasonally, but I haven't found a terrible one yet. They also offer growlers now too! Their food is not to the level of gastropub yet, but still a step or two above the normal sports bar fare. Prices are about what I would expect to pay in a college town, fairly reasonable, especially for the quality. Lots of history in this building, and well worth checking out.

Last week my husband and I took a 6-day road trip through the south and visited 27 breweries. Wednesday night was 4 stops in Atlanta and Thursday night was 4 stops in Nashville. On our way up from Point A to Point N we stopped in Chattanooga for lunch. Since Terminal had the highest ranking on BA, we gave it a shot and were not disappointed in the slightest. This place stands out in a town like Chattanooga, and would hold its own in a much bigger city with some real competition. (Sorry, Big River.) Considering how many breweries we visited and how many beers we sampled, this one definitely stood out.

The odd, triangular building was laid out into a good-looking and well-functioning space. Thursday lunch was a light crowd as this isn't really in the downtown office neighborhood. Thus the service was excellent. We happened to be telling the bartender about our beer voyage, and the guy down the bar who happened to be the brewer perked up and came over and told us all about the place.

Of the 8 beers on tap, he had free reign to play around with two of them, and he made some really great stuff. "Rock Out With Your Bock Out" and "Magnum P.A." would be two of the best beer names I've heard in a while, and they were both tasty. The menu had a similar sense of humor. I was debating several appealing options for lunch until a guy at a table nearby had a cheeseburger delivered. Suddenly I needed the cheeseburger, with bacon and mushrooms. I have a good number of bacon cheeseburgers in a given year, but this one didn't disappoint.

All-in-all, I would say that our experience here made me a little sad that I only get to Chattanooga about once every decade or so. For those of you that are closer, do yourselves a favor.
