    I lived in Nashville las year and my answer unfortunately is nowhere... Nashville's beer scene is pretty subpar compared with the rest of the country...

    Not everyone lives in Colorado, so here goes a couple suggestions:

    • Yazoo taproom is open Wednesday and Thursday from 4-8pm.
    • Yazoo, Tennessee Brew Works and Jackalope are pretty close to each other. TN Brew Works is newest of all 3, but has good beer on tap. These are all near 8th and Division. Jackalope has weird hours.
    • Flying Saucer has a decent selection of taps, plus its a cool place. Behind Union Station hotel, off Broadway.
    • ML Rose West for 2-for-1's on Wednesday.
    • Thursday is 2-for-1 at 3 Crow in East Nashville.
    • Drop by Midtown Wine & Spirits if you want a good selection of beer to take home.

    Also 12 South Taproom and Brewhouse Midtown as well. As far as Nashville being "subpar", it's time to get over that. For a visitor from out of town, especially out of the south, there is plenty of beer here for them to get excited about. Yazoo, Blackstone, Black Abbey, TN Brewworks, Cool Springs Brewery, Turtle Anarchy, etc. Like Cash said above, not everyone lives in Colorado...but I know in Colorado they can't get any of the above beers. A beer like Sue to us might not be "exciting", but take it out of state and see. I've been amazed what I've traded it for when I go to Michigan

    1. This isn't a helpful post and doesn't help the OP.

    2. Most states' beer scene pales in comparison to Colorado's. That is why we trade and travel, so what?

    3. The scene in Nashville (And Tennessee as a whole) has changed drastically in the last year. Do a Google search.

    OP, @Volntitan and @ColonelCash made some good recommendations. The only additional place I'd suggest is Craft Brewed, as it's a bar and a bottle shop under one roof. Their website is: http://craftbrewednashville.com/

    I am travelling from CT in June to Nashville and appreciate the useful feedback and look forward to trying out what is offered locally in Nashville. Thanks to the replies with suggestions!

    I agree completely and apologize for the worthless post. I do hope that the TN beer scene has improved recently and please help the op out if you can. I'm just rehashing memories from last year of having to walk in one door to get some Ommegang Three Philosophers , pay, walk out , and then walk in another door to get a six pack of Sierra Nevada stout , and pay again at Midtown wine & spirits. Crazy TN laws.

    But in all seriousness, I do apologize for that previous worthless post and if anyone needs advice on the beer scene when they're headed to Denver next time or want to crack open a bottle from my cellar with me , send me a BM. Sorry again Op. Good luck!

    Yes, you should find it on tap at most of the places mentioned previously (3 Crow, 12South Taproom, Craft Brewed, Broadway Brewhouse, Flying Saucer, etc.).
