I wanted to give this place a fair shot but the only positive thing I can say is that they gave us plenty of water on the way out to beat the heat. Otherwise the service was so-so, the food average, and the beer subpar.
I visited as they were opening and it still took around 40 minutes for a plate of nachos to get to the table along with two pints. The place got loud with just a couple of families so I cannot imagine it during a busy evening. If Iíd known it was going to be so lackluster I might have tried Salt Creek down the road instead.

I wanted to like this place - seemed like an oasis in the Nashville trinketínítrash desert...BUT good lord this place sucked. Looks like they spent all their capital on ambiance (and the place really does look great), but the beer was honestly the worst Iíve ever had at a brewpub bar none. Just plain nasty. We wanted to order food but after a couple of pints of stuff that they sold as beer; we asked for the check from the surly waitress and got the hell out. Avoid.

I had high hopes for this place when it opened. Watched them working on it one afternoon and spoke to one of the principles while I was there for a conference at one of the area hotels. Another place in Nashville to go when the wife is shopping with my buddies wife, a great looking place tucked back behind the main drag. We were quite disappointed though.
No wine for the wives, and their beer is not very good at all. Unfortunately they only sell their beer. Iíve done much better at home-brewing and only tried it twice!
Their Red was the best of the bunch but thatís because it was basically lacking in taste. The others we tried all had distasteful finishes. Not enough of a brewer/chemist to understand why, but Iíll take the previous persons word on what caused it.
Food, not bad, basic pub fare done fine, and overpriced, but most things are in Downtown Nashville.
Iíd recommend the Pine Room Tavern if youíre in search of craft brewed beer and good food while in the area.

This is a small, but very nice brewpub right of the main drag in Nashville, IN. For those that are not familiar with Nashville, itís tourist attraction because of the collection of artist galleries and shops. This place fits the mold of this town very well. This business was the idea of a few tradesmen who collaborated with others on the building right down to the furniture. Nice cozy and local ambiance with indoor or outdoor seating. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Food is what I would describe as above average pub fare. I really enjoyed my visit and this place exemplifies a small town local brewery. However, there is one critical link missing- the beer. Itís not that great. Drinkable yes, but every beer out of 5 had some problems on the finish (acetaldehyde, diacetyl). The experience and food made of for some of it. I hope to see them succeed and perhaps refine their beers a bit. If you are in the area, check it out.

Great food and service. Beer needs a lot of impovement. Very steep price for beer that was hard to swallow.

Youíll have to look carefully to find Molly Ln, it is all but an alley off of the Main St in Nashville. Big Woods is tucked back on a corner with limited parking, but it is a small place so not a big deal. Smells like fresh cut wood still, they had 6 or 7 tap handles (each a slightly different design cut from rare woods, very cool) but only 2 beers on at the time I visited. They just opened about a month ago though and now I see on the website they are adding three more beers in the next couple weeks so expect the number to rise. Beer itself was good, brewing on a small Sabco brewmagic setup that you can see back through the window they had a bit of a homebrew sort of thing going on. Food was unique and very good, had the Rueben dip. Atmosphere was friendly and local, should do well in this small town.
