Stopped by here while visiting Vanderbilt. I liked it a lot! Atmosphere is good, with nice decorations and a ton of beer bottles around the walls. I also liked being able to see the whole brewing set-up as I walked in the door. Service was friendly and fast, couldn't ask for much else, I guess. As far as beers go, the selection was fine, basically offering the six house brews that they had on tap. What I loved was the sampler--six 5-oz. glasses of all of their beers for $7.50. Good deal and fun to try. Food was very good, and price was definitely reasonable. I liked it for what it is, a bit of a better Granite City. The beer was definitely better than GC's, though the atmosphere is a bit similar (not a bad thing at all--just trying to compare it to something). Check it out!

Plain looking place as far as interior except for the brewing equipment, with a limited selection, but what they have is excellent.
Some of the best beer in Nashville for sure and what food they do have is also very good. I have had many Blackstone brews: Oatmeal stout, St. Charles Porter, Picnic, Nut Brown, and Chaser Pale.
Out of those, I would say that the Nut Brown is the best, with the St. Charles at the bottom (the only one I don't really care for). The service was amazing.
It's more like a restaurant than a brewpub. But definitely give the beers a try. They know what they're doing.
