After one sip, I knew FBB lived up to their claims.
The beers are bold in flavor and there was a prominent range of style throughout the drafts I tasted. I, of course, tried a flight (sampler) of all six beers on tap because there was no way I could stick with just one.
They renovated the building a few years back. It used to be the home of Fluffo Mattress and is located in East Nashville. Since I’m not from the area, I’m not sure if it’s considered a part of the Five Points neighborhood, but it is within walking distance to that neighborhood and it’s selection of other bars and restaurants.
During our visit, we were able to enjoy some live music. From what I could tell they regularly host musical acts. Since it was a super hot day during our visit we stayed in the bar area to enjoy the music, but there is seating in the outdoor beer garden and a deck overlooking the brewery itself.
Compared to the buildings and busy streets outside, this place is like a little sanctuary.
Unlike a lot of the breweries here in Cincinnati, Fat Bottom does offer a small in-house menu with seasonal dishes. Everything I saw come out of the kitchen looked mouthwatering, but we had dinner plans elsewhere. Seriously, check out this charcuterie board below – YUM!
If you’re interested in learning more about the beer and getting a behind-the-scenes tour the offer a Brewery tour and beer tasting every Saturday at 5:00pm for $5. I’ll be adding both the tour and menu to my to-do list on my return trip to Nashville!
All things said, Fat Bottom Brewing was one of my favorite stops during my trip to Nashville and I’m so glad we stumbled upon it during our first night. According to their website, it looks like FBB will be moving to a new, larger location at The Nations around the end of summer.
