In the 12th South neighborhood, right next door to Mafiaozas. We were on the outdoor patio on a Friday evening. Good crowd, but certainly not packed to the gills. Service was somewhat spotty and we never had a real good idea of who are waiter actually was.

Beer list is rather impressive, especially by Nashville standards. Lots of newer releases to the area including Gubna. Excellent mix of import and domestic craft. They also have special beer events every now and again. One of the most "beer-centric" spots in Nashville, though that isnt really saying much.

Nice hang. Relaxed out on the deck. Pretty good selection of beers, not the best, but pretty good - almost everywhere in Nashville has a pretty good selection. For me the bonus is that it's right up the street from Edley's (and a whole bunch of other places). Decent food, and I think pretty good service (but you have to keep in mind to a certain extent you bring the service to you, so if you're nice and friendly you'll probably be treated nice and friendly). Hmmm, perhaps even more important is the crowd, they're just nice normal people without prejudice. It's easy to strike up a conversation because everyone seems to be just hanging out and relaxing. I wouldn't put it at the top of my list to visit during a trip to Nashville because there are so many other specific places like Jackalope, but I'd recommend it after you've done your list.

Found this place through Beer Advocate. On an 82 degree day in the early spring the patio was jammed and would have been worth the wait if we weren't famished. Sat inside where the vibe is really cool. As was mentioned, lots of beer signs and concert posters on the walls. Ordered a Duck Rabbit Milk Stout and it didn't disappoint. Ordered up the smoked chicken nachos as an app and these were incredible too. Draft menu was good and had some variety but lots of stuff that I can get all over the country. Only a few regional selections but maybe thats just how it is. Loved the smoked chicken so much I got the smoked chicken tacos and a few more Milk Stouts. Our server, Haley, didn't seem all that interested in us and actually appeared rude at times. I get the hipster attitude but she played it on a little thick and that was the only thing taking away from the experience. Also, the tall dude who brought our first round to the table could handle a retake of friendliness 101 class. Next time in Nashville, I will try to return and hope for a smile or two and some kind words from my server.

We had lunch here while visiting Nashville. This place is in a cute little neighborhood that reminded us a lot of places we've been to in Portland, OR. Small with a large patio, decor is rustic with stickers on walls and weird art posters. Comfortable and casual. Service was friendly but reserved. Seat yourself. I had the BLT and it was really good. Others had the pulled pork burrito which was great and the Pork Bon Mei sandwich which was ok. Veggies weren't pickled. Beer selection was a strong 3.5 but could use some improvment. Value was very reasonable. I liked this place and would return.
