Full Disclosure: Yazoo is my first true love in beer. At one point, I legitimately wasn't a fan at all. Then I did a little European travel with my best friend and he convinced me to try various odds and ends in London and Brussels, making me realize there was more in the world than Yeungling. The transformation was complete when we got home and I tried a Yazoo Dos Peros and realized there was great beer in America, too.
That being said, this place is amazing. Go, take the tour, eat and drink at the bar, and go again. The tour guides are very friendly and usually a little tipsy which means a more fun tour and more beer for everyone (they pour it in stages of the tour from growlers in a much less regimented way than I've seen at say Terrapin or Cantillon). You can tell everyone really loves what they do and the product they produce. The brewery has an adorable story, too, so be sure to ask if they don't bring it up.
Sad side note, they can't serve their "Sue" there because of TN's draconian liquor laws. I'm out of the state now, so I don't follow it as closely as I used to but I believe legislation is in the works to change that.
It can get a bit crowded, so go early or be patient. Fun area of town with some nicer restaurants and shopping.
Pro Tip: Great date night consists of this and a walk over to Urban Flats for dinner afterwards.
All in all, great place to visit and try some great local beer.

I went on a Wednesday night and it was packed. Very cool building and the space was nicely done. The service was slow, lots of standing in line. They do growler fills at the taproom as well, but no food. I would recommend, good place for happy hour if you are in town.
