Each drink at the newly opened and much-anticipated Husk Nashville attempts to tell a story—start with setting, add a dash of history, build on character, and let the experience unfold.
Heading back to the bar on Sunday afternoon might not be your first, most obvious choice for a cure. Unless of course that bar is Nashville's No. 308. With its spacey vibe and its stoner-food plates piled high, the brunch here is designed with heavy-hitters at heart.
With outmoded state laws, like the legal split between high- and low-gravity beers (a demarcation at 5% alcohol by weight, or 6.3% by volume) and the "franchise laws" of the wholesale distribution system, Nashville once seemed destined to remain a craft beer backwater. But luckily for the locals, breweries have been popping up everywhere, and Nashville is positioning itself as a bona fide beer destination.
A cocktail crawl through the French Quarter, to the ambitious but uninitiated, is a game of chance. Beating the odds and finding great drinks requires talking up the bar staff, asking lots of questions, and being open to some of the chattiest, most genuinely friendly people on earth. Along the way, make sure to find yourself bellied up to at least one of these five local favorites.
