“Great beer and music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

We really enjoyed the beer tasting and music, but wish there had been some food. We noticed, however, that the locals bring their own and it's not a problem! Friendly people, fun atmosphere, great beer and music. The music was early (8-10), which was perfect for a relaxing weekend.

“Hooterville has a brewery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

The beer is always cold and varied. It's nice not to have to drive too far to get different beers. The brewery has great music and I love that you can sit outside.

“Great,local beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

This a great place to unwind or wind up. Owners are super nice and friendly. Only drawback is no snacks or food is served, other than "brezels" made at a local bakery, and they are wonderful. However, you can bring in any food you want and eat it on the premises, washing it down with one of their great,craft beers. Also, serving locally produced wine and some sodas. If you are in Hendersonville, and looking for a good beer and a quiet, friendly place-go no further!

“Excellent Beer....Fun Music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

I'm normally a wine guy but my wife insisted we take my cousins (who are brewery aficionados) to "The Southern" when they came to visit last month. And what an excellent choice that turned out to be!

I ordered the taster which allows you to sample four different beers before you settle in on one you like. All four were different and when reordering I stuck with the "blond". The relatives all went with the darker brews and were VERY happy with their selections.

This really isn't a "restaurant" so don't go expecting to have a dining "experience"! They do have terrific local gourmet pretzels and, when the truck pulls up outside, you can get a pretty good polish sausage, mushrooms, and sauteed onion sandwich. Just don't go expecting menu selections.

To top off the evening, this little brewery has local musicians who come in Friday and Saturday nights to make it a lively place to be. The result is a wonderful, casual, and friendly mountain evening! With the stainless steel tanks shining behind the guitarist and the high ceilings making for pretty good acoustics, what more could you ask for?

(BTW, my wife and I went back the next weekend without the relatives....maybe she will convert me to being a beer guy yet!)
