Cool Springs is located in a strip mall near Franklin TN. The inside is very open and has a sports pub feel. They have a smaller bar near the TV's.
I was there on a Tuesday night and the service was poor. While I was greeted at the door, the bartender took forever to get me a beer. Again, could have been a bad night.
The beer itself was okay. I liked the fact that they were doing Alt's and Kolsch's. However, they were average. Since it was TN, I know they have to cater to the Macro crowd. However, having several Macro's on tap was oof putting.
Overall, I would not reccomend this place. If lived in Franklin, I'm sure I would visit this place. However, for an out of town business traveler I think you can find better choices in downtown Franklin or Nashville.

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.
