This place was suggested to me by several people while I was in Nashville and on Beer Advocate as well and I can't seem to figure out why. There was nothing about this place but average food and a below average selection.

The restaurant was dimly lit with hundreds of beer bottles on double decker shelves all the way around the restaurant. They also have an all glass wall where you can look into their brewery, which was pretty cool. Outside of that, there were a few tv's and a bar in the middle. Very casual.

The quality was alright. Nothing that would make me want to suggest this place to anyone with all of the other restaurants Nashville has to offer.

Service was good but not great. If you aren't a craft beer enthusiast the waitstaff will be helpful as they like to compare their beers to BMC and the like. "Our Kolsch is like Budweiser" for example...

The beer selection was the most disappointing part of the entire experience. Six beers to choose from and out of the 4 that I sampled I can honestly say that they were all average at best.

The food was good, but like I had mentioned before there was nothing about it that would make me want to suggest this place to anyone.

If you are visiting Nashville and you like average food and beer then this is your place. I would highly suggest that you look into all of the other excellent restaurants the city has to offer before wasting one of your nights here.

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.
