Stopped in for beers on a Tuesday when they opened at 11.
Stop #395 on my world brewery tour.
Important to note the their head brewer (recently?) came from Twisted Pine Brewery in Boulder. The owner of Cool Springs recruited him and has given him creative license to do what he wants. Very adventurous for the mid south. He's doing some very nice hopped pale and IPA's. He's also a big Saison fan and had a black Saison which was pretty good (not a huge fan of roaster malt Saison's). My favorite was the American Pale hopped with Cascade, Centennial, and Citra. The IPA had Falconer's Flight which I'm less of a fan of.
Had a flight with Kolsch, Berliner Weiss (with raspberry and watermelon syrups), Amber, Pale, IPA, Stout, and Black Saison.
Bartender was super nice and did her best to describe the beers. Brewery is right next to the bar and I spent 20 minutes during my visit chatting with him.
Well worth the short drive down from Nashville to Franklin.

This place needs new reviews given they have a new brewmaster. Liked the atmosphere, up to date furnishings with a small stage with a Simon and Garfunkel type playing. Staff seemed very attentive and enthusiastic and the pizza was above average.
Now to the good part. The brewer seems to be very experimental with a ginger hop bomb available with 152 IBUs. I showed up too late for their amber that was running through a Randal filled with bacon and cocoa nibs. Had their espresso stout and everything seems solid.
