Nice place. Kind of a college town pub. Beers were pretty good. Food was very good. You are able to get samplers, which is great!

Cool building, we had an excellent brunch on a Sunday morning to some mellow jazz vocalist and then moved on to beer. The beer itself is fairly decent fare, nothing spectacular. They do have the occasional unlabled bottle of something that may not be on tap that my waitress was kind enough to go dig out for me.
I liked the hip vandy neighborhood where this is located, even though parking is difficult. Nice tall ceilings made this place feel more spacious than it actually was. The bartender was fast and knowledgeable. The food looked and smelled good even though I didnt actually eat there myself. But the beers range from average to downright bad. I will give them credit for always trying new recipes and creative seasonals, but they just seem to miss the mark more often than not.
Love this place. During the week you can get cask conditioned beers every night. Bottle conditioned beers as well. Regularly over 10 beers available. 7-8 beers on draft and 2-3 in bottles. The food is great, though a little pricey. I would recommend the pizza.
I heard a lot about this place while on a business trip. I’m new to the US and it’s hard to find good beer. Maybe, it’s just hard to find beer where I’m living. This place has good beer. The food’s not bad either! Service was great.
Right near the Vandy campus. Parking is tight but aviable behind the building. Food was very good. I had the beer sampler and all were at least decent. Pretty good to try 8 beers for 8 bucks. I will come back next time in town on business.
This was the first stop on Beer tour 08. Food was great. Service was great. Just the standards on tap, but after a while they were talked into ’going in the back’ to see what was conditioning in the bottle. Great place.
AMBIANCE: On the more upscale side, both in terms of the crowd and the decor. Live music was a nice touch. Copper brewkettles above well done. SERVICE: No complaints. Prompt SELECTION: They make some solid but not sensational beers. The special Rye-Not was the highlight of the day FOOD: We were there for Sunday brunch, so the menu was a bit atypical. My chicken andouille has was good, although a bit bland. My wife’s burger was okay a frozen patty cooked far above medium rare, although the parmesan garlic fries were pleasant. We were hoping for the wood oven pizzas, which were not available for Sunday brunch. OVERALL: There’s lots of good places to eat in Nashville. I’d be tempted to return simply to support the craft beer scene, but not for much else.
As far as restaurant/brewpubs, this place sits behind Blackstone for certain. I sometimes start here and then move on to Blackstone for more beer and better food. I’ve fund that Blackstone typically has better beer for this type of place, but am always happy to try thiers out. Again... this is a sampler place for me. I just love samplers.
My after work hang-out...sometimes around noon for a cheeky pint. great staff. the beer is a bit thin and malty for me but its damned better than average. Boscos is key. Good food. I like catching the cask when I can.
Stopped in to fray the expense account on a rainy spring Wednesday. Pretty easy to find, parking was a bit dicey, but I was able to park free and close. Near the Vandy campus. Got there at about 8:30, after the main dinner rush had gone and ate at the bar. The beer and the food here appear to be a notch better than at the Boscos Memphis location. Brandon, the head barkeep, picked right up on the fact that I was rating beers and really bent over backwards to assist me. Other wait staff would chime in from the waitress station at the bar to suggest their favorite brews and offer suggestions. Food came out very quickly. Duck spring rolls were ruthless. Friendly crowd, clean but not sterile-feeling. Well worth a stop. 8-9 Boscos fizzy taps and one or two cask handles.
