Soft openings at the Tennessee TapRoom start this evening, 4 to 8 p.m., followed by Friday, 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturday 2 to 6 p.m.
I haven't seen the new joint, which is located at 809 Ewing Ave., not far from Jackalope and Yazoo, creating what is being touted as a new Brewers Row in SoBro.
Tennessee Brew Works co-owner Christian Spears tells me the new taproom is roomy, some 3,600 square feet, with "multiple enviroments" for relaxing and enjoying your beer and the company of friends.
Not only does the taproom have a big glass wall overlooking the brewing operations, but there are even a few seats actually in the brewery if that interests you, where you can "see it, hear it, smell it," Spears says with a laugh.
If you prefer to sit outdoors (and more warm days are not inconceivable this fall), there are around 100 seats on the patio. They're also booking live music.
