    Dog & Vegetarian friendly!

    Lovely location, beautiful outdoor (socially distanced) space. Super dog friendly, and loads of vegetarian/vegan food options. Wonderful find.

    Great place

    I didn’t get to bring my dog along for the ride but still went to check it out anyway. The food and beer selection was great. My enclosed patio was large and dog friendly and there was uncovered patio as well for her to go, if I had taken her with us.

    Lovely Spot for Family Friendly Pups

    The table service wasn’t there at all, but they may have been understaffed. Luckily I can with someone so we tag teamed going inside to order and watching the dogs. The outdoor area is really open and great on a warm day. The pizza and beer is really good and you can generally find a dog bowl with minimal hunting. Lots of kids though so if your pup isn’t kid-friendly try to snag one of the further away tables outside. My beagles loved it though.

    Quick But Successful Visit

    We visited to try their beers so we didn’t have any of the food. However, the beers were great, service was amazing and they were very welcoming to our dog. It was raining and they didn’t make us go all the way around to the covered patio in the back, they let us cut through inside so we wouldn’t get wet. Definitely returning.

    Hot Night Out With Brady

    We are visiting Nashville from Lawrence, Kansas and decided to bring our two dogs on the road trip. My Atlanta-based parents met us and were game to try some dog friendly spots. I was so pleased to find Tailgate. The beer list is long and full of variety. The pizza smelled delicious and seemed popular (we had just eaten before we came unfortunately) and the dog-friendly outdoor seating was plentiful. They even had a movie night on the lawn facing the building. The only downside is that it is July and it’s incredibly hot and humid. It would have been nice if the semi-enclosed screened-in patio had fans. Service was great and they brought ice water for the pups.

    Perfect For Pups

    Allow dogs on their large outdoor patio which is half shaved and half not. Staff will give your puppers bowls of water with ice and lots of love! Really awesome pizza and beer too!!! Will be back!!

    Lots Of Space

    The back of the brewery to the left side of the building is where the barn and open field with picnic tables and some lawn chairs are. Very dog friendly but dogs have to be leashed. Difficult to go alone since they don’t serve you, rather you have to go inside and place your drink

    Love Yappy Hour

    They have monthly meet ups for dogs and dog lovers. It usually has a large crowd. The pizza is delicious and during these events they do have staff outside to take drink orders. You do still have to go in for food.

    Fun, casual place with lots of room

    Dogs allowed outside and in the "barn" area, which is a semi-screened, covered pavilion that's separate from the taproom and cafe. You can get there from the parking lot without walking through the building. But there was no tableside service (at least when we went for lunch) so someone from the group must go inside to get food and drinks.
