The bar bears an uncanny resemblance to Fratello's in Oshgosh, Wisconsin. I realize that maybe that's a stupid observation to begin a review with, but, man, it was freaky. Is there, like, a catalogue from which you can buy prefab brewpubs, like a commercial version of tract housing?

So, anyhow, the insides were upscale looking. Gold track lighting, black and chrome interiors, and comfy bar stools because fancy people got fancy asses and they deserve better than plain old wood. The bar was faux marble, and the waitstaff wore black shirts. It was pretty in a very material and superficial way. Which isn't to say the people there weren't friendly--they were--it's just the atmosphere projected a little bit of stuffiness that's really not my thing. This is a great, welcoming bar for business people.

The beer selection was boilerplate: APA, IPA, porter, and a session for the ladies. The beers were a notch above average for a regularly esteemed brewpub: there was no nodes of offness, no homebrew tang, no mindless or excessive hopping.

Food was tasty pub fare. Staff knew a little bit about every beer on tap. Really, everything was pretty good but nothing was exceptional.

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.
