Housed in the triangular, three-story building situated on the corner of Market and 14th Street, the Terminal BrewHouse is a very welcome addition to Chattanooga beer scene and seemed to be well-received by the locals, as the brewpub was nearly full capacity by 5:00 p.m. Sporting six beers and a reasonably diverse menu featuring everything from stuffed sandwiches to sweet potato cheesecake to even a 3-mushroom soup, there's a little something for everyone.

The owners make fine use of the limited interior space by housing the the brewing equipment in the basement, but made sure to leave open spaces in the main floors and upper levels so patrons can peer down at the shiny, new steel tanks. Heck, it even still has that "new brewpub smell" from the recent renovation. However, the rear parking area is still in under construction, and is little more than a gravel lot at this point.

The serving staff seemed friendly and more than eager to please. Even the chipper brewmaster stopped by for a quick chat before heading upstairs to attend a beer dinner.

All in all, I feel Terminal BrewHouse is off to a very fine start and I look forward to swinging by on my next visit to Chattanooga. Best of luck to'm!

While at Chattanooga Brewing (another awesome place), I asked for a certain stout I had seen at our hotel, and one of the friendly local regulars (yo Greg!) told me where to go, and it wasn't hell this time.

A side note - (Our hotel bar had a colorful Southsidenstein Stout tap handle on it, with a funny cool monster cartoon logo, so I had to find it. In town to see Here Come The Mummies/Flaming Lips, so a monster brew was very appropriate.)

Fire Bad - Beer Good!

Immediately I could tell this place was gonna be great. It was Saturday afternoon/Riverbend fest's final day, and Terminal was jumpin and vibrant. Friendly fun atmosphere for all.

They have some great, talented tappers (BIG shout out to Jeremy and Mariah) and servers, with many excellent choices of their quality brews and some fine looking pub fare in a hip yet traditional layout. Great location in the midst of a bustling area by the Choo Choo, makes for a fun environment.

First up - the Southsidenstein Stout: an absolutely perfectly tapped pint, top quality fresh, aromatic oatmeal stout with classic dark roast malt, and the black coffee and cocoa undertones. An all around great classic style session-able stout at 5.7%abv.
We could see down into the brewing area from the bar. Nice, spacious but cozy feel to it. This place was rockin' busy and running smooth like a track.

Next, we got their "Rock Out With Your Bock Out"- a Maibock Amber and their Malachi Irish Red. Both are beautifully done. And again, these tappers were so smooth and fast, constantly filling flights and pints perfectly.
The Amber had a nice tart bite to balance its malty richness. Killer good. At 5.8% abv, it's punched up a bit. Aye.

Malachi Irish Red may have stolen the show. At 6.3% abv, it's punched up a bit, and just gorgeous in the pint, with that red fiery orange color, and a clarity that I love. Bright, juicy -but not too fruity, crisp, balanced clean and kicking finish. Superb for a hot summer day, or whenever...Top hats tipped, friends.

I will happily drive the three hours through the whitewater region of southern mountains(Ocoee/Nantahala/Cherokee) to reurn to Chattanooga and the emerging brew scene, with it's really hospitable vibe. Just go.

Visited in March 2017. Nice atmosphere with a d├ęcor heavy on wood and brass in a cool, historic building in downtown Chattanooga, a block from the Chattanooga Choo Choo. Service was friendly and pretty efficient, considering the large size of my group (7). Food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Beers I had were all competent, if not overly inspiring. The house tap list had a decent variety, along with a few guest taps. The beer sampler was a good deal and had generous tasting sizes. For me the highlight was Southsidenstein Stout. This taproom is worth a stop when you are in Chattanooga.

Located in a renovated hotel building in Chattanooga, TN. The atmosphere, beer, food, and service were excellent.

Based largely on a June 2015 visit, I have been here a couple of times before.

A 2-story renovated bldg. adds to the nice brewpub atmosphere. Their beer list is restricted to 6 house beers and, being in TN, these are all restricted to 6.% ABV or less. Terminal manages to produce some fine beers (an no losers in my experience) and good variety within these constraints. Flights of all house beers are available, as are pints, half=pints and growler fills (to go).

Very good to excellent food, including the salmon sandwich and the lamb burger.

Good location, but hard to park. Place is very cool and has several floors. Service was awesome and the food was top notch. They have about 6 beer choices, several of which were solid 4 out of 5. The IPA is very good as is the Stout. I would recommend this place when in Chattanooga
