About Nashville Brewing Company

The Nashville Brewery began operating in 1859; opening its doors to a blossoming city. Located just outside the city center on High Street (now 6th Avenue), the hand-crafted local beer quickly satisfied the thirst of the hard-working citizens.

Though operations halted briefly during the Civil War, the brewery overcame the disruptions and re-opened in 1865. With a focus on German style lagers, the then named Nashville Brewing Company continued to brew quality beer through the end of the 19th century. A historical marker now marks the spot where the brewery once operated in Nashville’s famous “Gulch” district.

We are proud to continue this brewing tradition and create the next chapter in this brewery’s history. We hope you enjoy this wonderful beer made by Nashville’s oldest brewery. Cheers!
