The second brewpub we visited on our brief Nashville brewpub crawl was Jackalope Brewing Company, conveniently located just a few minutes’ walk from our first stop at Yazoo. I wasn’t expecting much, but the place turned out to be quite solid.

First and foremost, I love the logo. The design is brilliant, and the decorations throughout the pub are delightfully odd, playing off the jackalope theme. Some of the pieces I wanted to take home. A taxidermied rabbit with antlers sticking out of its head? Yes please. The tables were cozy, the atmosphere was relaxed, and the coffee shop next door shared space, grub and libations.

The beer was also solid. They had five beers on tap when I visited, and we took a sampler of four, ignoring the fruited wheat beer seasonal selection for obvious reasons. While none of the offerings were all that unique – a pale, red rye, maple brown and IPA – they were all very well crafted and quite tasty.

Together with the decorations, the vibe and the friendly bartenders, this is a must-stop while in Nashville.

I think that this young brewery has a lot of potential. The beer selection isn't that vast because they have only been around for about 6 years or so. It helps when you have a bigger brewery like Yazoo literally just a block down the street. Jackalope Brewing Company has bought a lot of Yazoo's equipment second hand because Yazoo has outgrown it and it Jackalope has been expanding pretty rapidly as well. They had about 12-18 different beers to choose from. They definitely have a unique style in Nashville and fill a niche. The brewery tour was pretty cool as the owner of the brewery had a lot to share. She really knows her beer. The only beer that is available to buy for carryout is Thunder Ann. I would recommend that you try it if you like a pseudo-hoppy ale. I can't wait for them to grow and start offering more beers for carry out/distributing. They will be a brewery to look out for down the road.

Cheers,

Tony

Love the atmosphere here. If you're looking for a sports bar...go somewhere else. However, if you and some friends are looking for a place to drink fresh, craft beer, possibly hear a live band or want to play Jenga, Checkers, Risk, Monopoly etc ....this is the place. Bearwalker is one of my all time favorites. My only complaint is that they do not bottle yet.

First trip time in Nashville. Small beer scene with some good offerings. Jackalope seemed to sit low on the radar compared to older breweries in the region. However their vibe, and general quality make for a fun visit and good brews.

Small operation, laid back, fringe and friendly attitude that was very pleasant. About seven offerings in the tasting room. 4 regular brews, plus 3 specials? Nothing earth-shattering but all felt rather tasty with a pretty nice terroir throughout. If I had to highlight any... The Black IPA was pretty tasty (Spruce Beerstein?) , and caught my attention far more than the harvest ale. The Gose (Casper?) was also playfully nice.

Good hideout close to downtown. I should be back if I return to Nashville.
