A modern, multi-level brewery with hi-tech capabilities, Tennessee Brew Works was one of the first breweries to make the jump over 8th Avenue east into this now-booming area. Grab a creative brew in their huge, sculptural taproom. Try one of my all-time favorites: Walk the Lime—it’s tart, tropical, and lightly bittered. Tennessee Brew makes seasonal beer with local flair; the results are interesting, accessible, and drinkable. Their food is better than any brewery’s needs to be—think frog legs, house-made charcuterie, and pâté that is so creamy and luscious that it made me a believer in chicken liver. Tours are available as are spaces for private events.
