I visited Jackalope while in Nashville a couple of weeks ago. It's got a clean, sparse build-out but is still pretty welcoming. There were 8 taps available when I visited; of the beers I had, the tropical pale ale was my favorite. Service is bar-only but friendly and efficient; I would totally return to Jackalope if I found myself in Nashville again.

A very cool neighborhood vibe. They had a trivia night in which many people were playing and drinking. Great idea. Beer was pretty good. This was much better than Yazo.

NIce place. Full when my party went. The downer on a personal level: They had a dude playng a whole-bar trivia game. For a Thursday though, whatever it takes to get people in the door is a good thing.

Number and quality of selections was decent. Definitely worth a visit if you are brewery hopping Nashville.

I visited this brewery while in Nashville on a brewery tour with my bachelorette. We had a fantastic time and loved all of the outdoor space! The decor in the brewery is fun and upbeat and the bar snacks were a perfect addition to our flights!

Nice little place. A little awkwardly open and spacious, but perhaps we were just there on an off hour/day and it feels more energetic when it is filled up. The staff was really unfriendly and passive aggressive, and made some snide comment to my friend who doesn't really know beer and asked a question that was clearly sincere. Beer was ok. Better to walk to Third Man Records down the street.

A fun and quirky taproom. Beer styles were solid and well done. This is a one of the few places that isn't IPA all the time. You can get browns and ambers as well as their solid selections. Worth a stop when you're in the Gultch neighborhood.

One of the best things about this brewery was that each of the tables had a different quotation engraved into it. I thought that was an interesting touch. I also liked the different art work they had hanging on the walls. Very interesting pictures and portraits that stood out.

Unfortunately, the beer itself didn't really stand out. The best thing I had on draft was their Direwolf IPA, best hop profile, and overall most interesting beer. They had a barrel aged brown ale that was just dominated by the barrel and not blended very well in my opinion.

I did like the quaintness of the place and the fact that they had a stage and live music. I did enjoy my visit there.

Small narrow tap room with counter service. Kinda brightly lit with a lot of natural light. A bluegrass band was playing in the front corner, which was nice. Servers were cool and talkative, knew the beers. Beers were solid. Six taps available, mostly stuff I'd seen in cans or at other bars around town, but nice to be able to try them on tap at the tap room. Easy to find, walkable from The Gulch.

I stopped in to Jackalope on a late Friday afternoon to find a good after-work crowd forming. There was even a line out the door. Fortunately it went pretty fast, and then once the initial surge had subsided it was fairly easy to get another beer.

It's got a very relaxed, easy going vibe, and it seems that the outside area is really the place to be to just chill with friends and enjoy a few good beers. Inside there's a kind of industrial-chic / vintage look with a dark grey stained concrete floor, reclaimed wood, industrial stools and Edison bulbs. Some interesting art on the walls give it flourishes of color and culture.

The crowd was quite diverse, at least in age, and seemed like a blend of locals, transplants, and tourists. There's also a coffee shop attached, Zolli Koffee, and I was surprised to find some of their customers blending with the beer crowd.

There's no food, but the beers are good and they keep more on tap than just their 4 regulars. I enjoyed their "7 Cities Pils" and my wife had a "hefeweizen" and it's fruited sister, the strawberry-raspberry "Lovebird".

It's not hard to find their beers on tap at other locations throughout town but if you've got the time I'd suggest a visit. Additionally, it's not far from Yazoo Brewing, Peg Leg Porker BBQ, and Tennessee Brew Works.
