Kevin Antoon, Jamie Lee, and Jared Welch met in the corporate world. Their weekends spent homebrewing quickly evolved when they shed their business attire and decided to go all in–opening a 430 square foot brewery in East Nashville with a modest seating area. The doors opened in February of 2016 staffed by the three founders and their wives.

Year one was a roller coaster as we dialed in the brewing system, built out our taproom, and simply tried to keep up with growing demand. Within a year, we started looking for a larger space to brew and serve our beer.

On our Two Year Anniversary, we opened our second taproom and 9,900 square foot production space in The Nations neighborhood, allowing for a massive production increase in just two years.

Today, with over 20 employees on our team, and over 600 unique beers in our portfolio, the future is bound to be just as exciting as the past. Buckle up!

Our original location is in the heart of East Nashville and opened February 2016. Our East Nashville taproom has become a staple of one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Nashville, welcoming families, neighbors, and tourists alike into our cozy space.
Kids are encouraged to come play board games while their parents sip. Dogs are allowed on the porch and service animals can roam without boundaries. Our former brew space has now been transformed into a lounge with comfortable seating, a large tv, and greenery.

Our second taproom opened in February 2018 and stands directly in front of our production facility. The Nations neighborhood is modern, growing, and creative which is exactly how we modeled the design of our space. With more seating, a bigger bar, and a few modern touches, this is a place to relax, work, or chill with your neighbors. Our fenced patio seats 45+ including an outdoor couch area, barrels for standing room, and string lighting to complement those beautiful Nashville evenings.

We opened our doors in February 2016 and have been making out-of-the-box flavors and styles of craft beer ever since. We focus on creating unique beers with the utmost quality and we look forward to welcoming you into our taprooms!
