The Picnic Tap

Germantown

This Southern gem is tucked inside the Nashville Farmer’s Market and specializes in local suds and grub. Their rotating selection of craft beers is especially tasty when paired with their locally-sourced meats, cheeses, and picnic foods. Pack a blanket and prepare yourself for an authentic taste of Nashville in more ways than one.

The Filling Station

East Nashville & South Nashville

We’re kind of obsessed with the fact that Nashville has its very own beer-to-go spot, The Filling Station. Depending on your mood, grab a six pack or fill up a half-gallon Growler with your beer of choice, and then go drink it at your leisure, anywhere you please. The Filling Station owners feel strongly that you should enjoy your favorite brews in your favorite places, from your backyard to a BYOB restaurant.
