Look who’s turning five… Cool Springs Brewery!

csb newYou know we love a good birthday party, especially when it’s for a brewery. And what is it about this time of year that makes it a good time to open a brewery? In the last few months Nashville has seen birthday parties for many of its breweries. Cool Springs Brewery has a very special birthday coming up as they celebrate five years of making great beer in Franklin, TN. There’s just something special about the birthdays and anniversaries that come every five years. Half a decade is a big deal.

Cool Springs Brewery and Brewmaster Derek Morse are pulling out all the stops with 45 beers, including some sours and big IPAs, like Hoppy Balboa. There will be several beers debuting that have never been served at the taproom. Here’s the list…
