Place is decent with a very typical restaurant feel, parking is apparently an issue as this section of town gets rather busy. The waiter was very nice and their beer comes in a variety of sizes, all the way down to 3oz for sampling purposes. I wasnít too impressed with anything I had, but we were there for the cask tapping at happy hour. That was a great ritual all in itself and definitely made my visit a little bit more interesting.

Very contemporary interior, with a nice gourmet menu. Prices are not to bad for the quality of food. I like the pizzas, pasta, and the salads. The open kitchen is pretty cool. This is a trendy venue that can get busy on the weekends and at night after work. Service in the small bar area is hit or miss, especially when its crowded. It also gets very loud. Most of the beers are good,with adequate rotation. They have a cask beer every night at five. Definitely worth a visit. Good beer and good food, how can you go wrong?

Modern looking interior that tries hard to have a funky vibe to it (it helps that itís in a cool, funky area). The sampler is 8 beers for $8 and the beers are far better than any of the other local beers. The food was very good as well.

Cool little place. Food was great but not a huge menu. 8 taps going with 5 regulars and 3 seasonals. Samplers available. They bust a cast open each day at the begining of happy hour. Check the website for the cast schedule and what seasonals are available. Parking is a problem during the busy hours.

Found this pretty easily for an out of towner, despite the fact that the picture shown on the site is not the picture of the Nashville location. If I had half a brain, I would have taken a picture of the place, but I wasnít thinking. In any case, I was there at lunch, the place is essentially one huge room, very noisy as a result, but it was good to see the place bustling at lunch time. Friendly staff. 8 beers going on tap, 5 regulars, 3 seasonals. Also had a cask beer, but the Zwickel was unavailable until 5:30 PM. Too bad. They offer a sampler where you can try all the beers at once in littlle 3 oz. mugs, which is what I selected. The beers were well made for the most part, but none were outstanding. Still worth a visit. The tamale I had for lunch was quite nice.

This place is in a great part of town and has a wonderful atmosphere that has minimal noise. The service is great and the staff friendly and helpful. An eight beer sampler was $8.00 which includes 5 brews year-round and 3 seasonal specialties. Thier webiste is a good resource for finding out what the current brew are before you go. I highly reccomnmend this brewpub when in Nashville; it was well worth my 1:45 drive!

This place was cool we arrived about 4:30 and the informed us that every beer we bought we would be entered in a draw to tap the cask that night ( they have a cask every week night) and the winner would get a beer and a glass and a to win a GABF. My only negative thing to say about this place is the know it all German brewer.

I took a cab from Big River to Boscos, which to my shock was $10 to go 2.5 miles! The cabs in Nashville are expensive. Unlike Big River, which was closing down for the night at just after 11pm on a Friday, Boscos was still happening when I arrived there at about Midnight. Perhaps this was partially due to its close proximity to Vanderbilt U. The joint is not upscale like Big River, but perhaps is more comfortable. I sat at the bar, which was noisy and smoky! The bartender, when finding out I was from Minneapolis and was rating beer, gave me my $8 sampler for free! That helped ease the pain of the $20 in cab fares it took me to get there and back. The beer was very solid. 4 regulars and 3 seasonals. By that time at night after probably 4-5 beers at dinner and another 7 samples at Big River, my palate was a little fried. Recommended.

Very Impressive. Its located near Vanderbilt, so there is a mix of student s and professional types. All of the beers on tap are their own, and the waiter gave a very detailed description of each one, even if it was aimed toward a beer novice ("its like heavier bodied Newcastle..."). They have wood fired pizza oven, and the resulting pizzas are excellent. I had the sampler, one other pint, and a pizza for under $20.00. Certainly worth the trip.
