Cool Springs Brewery, Franklin, TN

I stopped in at Cool Springs Brewery in Franklin, Tennessee for dinner and a beer.  Their fish and chips was wonderful.  I’m glad I went with the small portion.  It was plenty of food.  The chips were great plank fries and the fish was expertly fried.  I tried two beers.  Their Pecker Wrecker IPA was tasty, a bit resiny for my palate but good nevertheless.  Their Fatback Amber was very tasty and perfectly paired with the fish and chips.  This made for an ideal dinner.  I highly recommend this place for dinner and beer.

Tailgate Beer, Nashville, TN

I stopped in at Tailgate Beer in Nashville, Tennessee and enjoyed a flight of beers.  Their Watermelon Wheat was tasty but I was hoping for more watermelon flavor.  Their Fall Wit was an enjoyable beer – mild in flavor.  Grapefruit IPA was also good but again I wanted more grapefruit flavor.  The Peanut Butter Milk Stout was smooth and delicious.  Just the right amount of peanut butter.  This was the last beer I tasted and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I also enjoyed the large hosue salad from their kitchen.  Their pizzas looked tasty but that would have been too heavy for me at that time.  The brewery is a great place and well worth a visit!
