Went as part of a walking brunch food tour today. The huge draught offerings of all TN craft beers is very impressive to me. Others may like the sweets offerings. Parking could be an issue.

Came by looking for Waldo- bartender gave us 2 free beer tokens. Came back the next week and had some drinks and snacks with the kids. Great selection of beer- small patio area if you have kids and a stroller.
