Stopped at the brewery on our way back from Cincinnati. A bit hard to find but definitely worth the effort. The service was outstanding, friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the vibe very much. Great beer people.

The beers I had were great, very high quality. Will go back when I can.

Visited for their three anniversary party/release. The staff rocks and were super chill and friendly. They actually bought doughnuts, coffee, and brought out heaters for everyone who waited in line in the elements. They controlled the line and accommodated as best they could. The draft selection was on point and the ambiance was something I really enjoyed. I will absolutely visit again when in Nashville.

Chill vibe, with help and advice at the bar (no table service when I was there). Cozy atmosphere, with tables, couches and a pool table. Ten or so beers available for tasting, half and full pours. Growlers, 4-packs and march for takeaway.

Large warehouse production facility with back section set up as tasting room. Small bar seat 10, 4 or 5 tables inside - along with a pool table, and about 20 picnic tables outside. 8 beers on tap, all solid... friendly service. Rainy day when I was there; looking forward to returning.

A quirky little place, a production brewery first with a small tap room area it seems to me. There is a pool table inside, and a more extensive beer garden; it was a tad warm on a Saturday mid-afternoon when we were there, but there was hardly anyone outside. A handful of tables and at most a dozen seat bar.

Admitted, they are an IPA-driven brewery, but selection-wise, there were under but around ten offerings - all but one pastry stout was an IPA or APA. All the IPAs were fairly similar and all but I think one was in the NE vein. Now, they do the style decently enough (though I found most of them had a oat/flour/malt aspect to them that dull the hops more than I'd wish).

Service was decent - helpful and friendly, fairly attentive. being a production brewery without much going on outside on our visit, the vibe was a more subdued "come and try our wares" kind of vibe. This is fine enough, but I wonder if there's other, more interesting times when the outside is more happening.

Small craft brewery hidden in a largely industrial area in Nashville. Neat artwork, cool people and great beer. Many delicious hazy IPAs that looked like carbonated juice and a very good kolsch that I highly recommend

this place is righteous! a little off the beaten path off in some old industrial feeling area like so many breweries are these days. a big gravel parking lot leads up to a spacious, minimalist, and newish paito, concrete with picnic tables and string lights, not much to it, but less is more sometimes, and the vibe here is great in the evening with a setting sun casting mellow low light. inside is soft of victorian feeling at the bar area, no need for the dj playing music too loud to talk on a friday night, but aside from that, the energy is good, mellow and comfortable, the taproom area opening right up to the brewery with fermenters all over the place and what appears to be plenty of space to grow, cool vibe here, everyone is here for the beer in an area that would get no foot traffic otherwise. the beer is amazing, they have at least ten on tap, lots of hazy pales and ipas, with some darker stuff in the mix too. they had a peach and strawberry hoppy brew that was next level, a gnarly cookie stout, and an oat and mosaic one that was killer too, but for me the chief of chiefs double dry hopped was my favorite. service was fine, leaning pretentious but plenty tolerable, and the dude gave us some good recommendations around town. all of us were really impressed by this place, their beer is fabulous and the vibe on the patio is excellent, mellow as can be, time just flew by, and their beer is some of the best i have had anywhere in nashville. ill be back here for sure!

My wife, daughter, and I spent a great couple hours on a Sunday afternoon at Bearded Iris. A big, industrial, high-ceilinged place. The brewing equipment takes up most of the room, but there is a nice pub feel to the bar area. There's even a pool table. A big outdoor deck.
Six beers on tap at our visit. APA, IPA, 3 DIPA, and a stout. Homestyle was excellent.
Two people tending the bar on what looked like a busy day, and they kept things moving quite well.
Would recommend this to anyone visiting Nashville.

Strange vibe. Service was actually pretty decent, and the beers I had were decent too. Selection was poor though. All the beers were pretty much variations of the same style, hazy IPA. They had one stout, but I was warned that was not their forte, so I stuck to the IPAs. Not sure I'd return unless somebody was begging for only IPAs.

Bearded Iris has a large bar with about a dozen bar stools, black and white checkered flooring, extravagant chandeliers, and lots of comfortable seating. The quality of the beer is top notch. There were only two servers working the day we visited, but they were both friendly and helpful. They currently have eight beers on tap.
