This is a brewpub located within a block of the Tennessee Aquarium. I did not see any brewing equipment displayed in sight, so I am not certain if they brew on the premises. The overall look is that of a converted brick warehouse (which I am quite sure it is), with tall metal ceilings and brick facade. The premises look well kempt and clean with two tap areas, a main restaurant area, and some pool tables. The atmosphere was very friendly for families with kids.

The selection of beers was underwhelming with six year around choices (Light Lager, Vienna Style Lager, Brown Ale, Pale Ale, India Pale Ale, and Stout) and a seasonal (which currently was Irish Red). You can't get much more boring than that. In addition all brews were quite watery with the light lager at 3% ABV being the weakest, and the IPA at 4.75% ABV being the strongest.

The food we ordered was a bit slow to be delivered, but the taste of the chicken flautas I ordered and the chicken salad sandwich that my wife ordered was quite good. The French fries that came with our son’s chicken tendered were just perfect.

If they got a bit more adventurous in the styles and strength of their beers, I’d recommend this place wholeheartedly to anyone. Right now it’s worth a visit if going to Chattanooga, but not much more than that.

Went to the one in Nashville

Food is basic nothing to rave about and the same goes with the beer. I had a burger with sweet potato fries and my women had shrimp pasta which was very good. We did the beer flight and brews were simple and basic. I do not think i would go back unless it was for a work party. It was very crowded and service was outstanding for how packed it was.
