Nashville, TN Edition: Jackalope Brewing Company
Jackalope Brewing Company was founded by two women: Bailey Spaulding and Robyn Virball. That alone made me excited to check out this brewery. Badass women showing that the beer world isn't just for guys? Count me in. Plus, what a weird/cool name.
There is parking here, which was a huge plus. And, as soon as we walked in, we waited our turn at the bar before placing our order. I got a sampler with Thunder Ann, Bear Walker, The Great Horned Owl, and Leghorn, and then walked it over to the casual, comfy open area. It was clear this was a real community spot, with a room full of people hanging out with a delicious, creative craft beer having conversations and reading the paper.
I liked the Thunder Ann, which was a bit hoppy, but it was also a tad citrusy. It is also named after Davy Crockett's fictional wife. Cool.
Bear Walker is a good, malty beer. Heavier for a hot day, but tasty. Leghorn was a bit too hoppy for my tastes, and The Great Horned Owl is a wheat that has a nice body.
I think this place has a super cool vibe with some tasty beer. If I had more time, I could see myself hanging out here and leisurely enjoying my beer. But, we have many, many more places to see.
