If you want a great local beer in Nashville you should defiantly make a stop at Jackalope Brewing Company. Jackalope is cool not only because they have fantastic brews, like the Bearwalker Maple Brown Ale, but because it is the only brewery in Nashville founded by women! They have cool events like yoga on Saturdays and live music! There is a limited menu available. My favorite is the delicious cheese plate from the Bloomy Rind which is located in East Nashville paired with a Lovebird Strawberry/Raspberry Hefeweizen.
They are located at: 701 Eighth Avenue South Nashville, Tennessee 37203
