Among a row of loud venues with live music, this place is strangely quiet and boring. Perhaps that’s what they are going for. They have a lot of taps here, but not a lot that are interesting. Some local stuff though. No flights, only pints, so it seems pointless to have so many taps. A beer venue to hide out in if your friends are off listening to country music somewhere, or a good break from the madness.
Nice area, lots of room inside. We tried a couple of the multi taps they had, all were decent. We stopped in the late afternoon before the dinner rush, so not real crowded. Worth a stop for a few ticks.
Visited on Sunday night 15/02/15.
Located on the main drag in town I think we chose a good time to visit around mmidnight as the place wasn’t too packed so service was prompt. Lots of taps but not a whole load of interesting offerings ... that said I picked up a few local TN ticks. Decor wise nothing special .... large windows at the front onto the street ... rectangualr room with low table seating. Place allows smoking - gross ! First time I’d experienced this in a long time and would certainly put me off a future visit.
Overall fine ... The seasoned ticker won’t find much comfort in then large tap list bit of you’re from out of town you’re bound to get some new scopes.
On the main drag in downtown Nashville, so it’s a shit show on a weekend night in the area. This place was a little less crowded than pretty much every bar. Still kind of loud and full, but better. You’ll definitely feel like a tourist anywhere in this part of town.
Lots of taps, lots of TVs, and some table games and what not. The prices on the beers are pretty good. They have a number of local Nashville and Tennessee beers as well as some more national/well known options. Kind of dark and your typical sports bar sort of decor, I guess is how I would describe it.
Pretty decent service despite being rather crowded on a weekend evening. Definitely the least annoying of all the tourist traps in the area.
This is a pretty typical night spot. There are a couple flat screen TV’s, long bar, lots of alcohol related decor. Beer selection is pretty decent, not crazy good. You will probably find a good beer and it will be served to you in a chilled shaker. Pretty average place.
(Visited 09/2010): Broadway Brewhouse is located right in the thick of the Broadway tourist area, a few blocks from the riverfront and in walking distance to all the hotels. Parking seems like it would be difficult.
The inside has a small seating area right inside that allows for people watching, then opens up to the bar(s) and more table seating. The place is loud with a high turnover, and we had to wait a bit for a table to open up.
The bar has around 70 taps with maybe half comprising non macros. A few of the more local/regional brewers on draught include Yazoo and Sweetwater. Aside from that there is a smattering of Sierra Nevada, Stone, Rogue and a few more. Similar story with bottles, although there were less choices in bottles than on tap. A few imports were present too but nothing out of the ordinary.
Service was alright on a busy night. Our server was friendly but we felt like we were taking up valuable real estate at times by sitting at her table with a couple beers and not getting food.
As I mentioned, we did not have any food on this visit.
Overall this place is worth a stop to maybe try a beer or two from TN and maybe catch a game but this is definitely not at the top of the list of places I would visit on my next trip.
Great selection, great ambiance. Had a couple of Bocks, one that was very good. Wife had a wheat beer that she said was very good. Didn’t eat, but suppose the food is probably average at best, but we will be back for sure.
I visited this place almost a year ago. Large beer selection... I had a Chimay Blue ($8.00). Food was not bad. I liked that I could enjoy a smoke at my table after my meal... have not been able to do that since my last trip to Europe.
