5 To Try: Beer

Sip on some of the newest suds from our favorite local brewers this spring.

1927 IPA

In honor of the changing of the Tennessee state law that now allows local breweries to produce higher alcohol beers, this heady brew comes in at 7.5% ABV, and sports a label created by local print maker (and neighbor of the brewery) Isle of Printing.

Guru Gish

Mantra brewmaster Derrick Morse crafted this rich and decadent milk stout as a tribute to a close friend of the brewing community, Jeff Gish, who passed away after battling kidney cancer. The flavors of caramel, vanilla, and peanut mimic Gish’s favorite candy flavors.

Grapefruit IPA

Now available in cans, this refreshing IPA from TailGate Brewery offers the right balance of citrus and hops. Pick up a six-pack at the brewery’s expansive West Nashville facility or at the Midtown location on Demonbreun.

Music City Light

Owned by several local bar owners, this is a light, crisp, refreshing beer made in Nashville (and for and by Nashville)—meaning it’s the one you want to order when you’re out on Broadway. Music City Beer Co.musiccitybeerco.com

5 Points IPA

The Belgian-inspired local brewery Black Abbey started canning a few of their year-round beers last spring, so you can now tote a six-pack of their West Coast style favorite to your next cook-out. Black Abbey2952 Sidco Dr, Nashville, TN 37204; 615-755-0070; blackabbeybrewing.com
