The craft beer scene is growing rapidly nationwide and Nashville is no exception. The number of Nashville breweries will nearly double in 2013. Yeah, double! Earlier this year Czann’s went online, Black Abbey and Tennessee Brew Works have brewed their first batches and Honky Tonk and Little Harpeth are hard at work building out their breweries. We’ve told you about most of those breweries already, but there’s one left. Let’s welcome Honky Tonk Brewing to town!
Honkey Tonk Brewing will open a production brewery and taproom at 240 Cumberland Bend in MetroCenter. It’s conveniently located off Rosa Parks & I-65, and it’s especially easy to get to for the 6,000 people who work in MetroCenter. The taproom will have a small kitchen area and serve BBQ to hungry beer lovers. There will be about 20 seats at the L-shaped bar, as well as tables around the floor.
When Honky Tonk fires up the brew kettle, they plan to offer an IPA, Maibock, Amber Ale and an American Wheat Beer. The beers will be brewed on a 20 Bbl (barrel) brew system. Beside kegging their beer, they plan to can for packages sales. We really like canned craft beer,we think it stays fresher longer. I hope more locals starting canning too. Follow Honkey Tonk on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with their progress.
