Great place for better than domestics in Nashville. Always go there when we visit the Honky Tonks. Food is pretty good. Like to collect pint glasses when we travel but they only had generic glasses. Would have bought the Brown glass if they made them. The covered patio is a great place to eat or just sit and people watch. The inside is very nice and cool when it gets hot outside. The place is clean. The staff is friendly.

Stopped in while visiting Nashville. The inside is pretty nice with tables and a wrap around bar. There were pool tables to one side and plenty of TVs. Looked like during the summer there was some outdoor seating, which would be nice considering you over look the river and the street scene all around you.

I had the sampler and my favorite was the 16th Avenue Pilsner. I liked it so much I ordered a second. Straight up true Pilsner that kind of reminded me of a Stella.

Ok, this is by far the worst brewpub i nashville. The only time I was in there, all of the beers had a really bad DMS thing going on. This is not as good as the big river in Chatanooga or the rock bottom in Atlanta that have basically the same menu/beers. I'm pretty sure this place would not be in business if it wasn't for the location.

I have heard that a new brewer has taken over and much of the equipment has been replaced, so it might warrant another trip

We visited Big River on a trip through Nashville earlier this year. It was a nice place to drop in after seeing the Country Music Hall of Fame (just a short walk). A good size bar area is surrounded by a much larger dining area with both tables and booths. There is also seating in a street-side patio area.
The taps included 6 standards plus several seasonal/guest brews. Since it was my first visit to a Big River, I tried a couple standards. Both the Sweet Magnolia Brown and the Thick Brick Red were excellent.
The menu includes a very good selection of appetizers, salads, pizzas, sandwiches and interesting main dishes. We parked on the street but it's a popular tourist area so there are also several pay lots close by. Broadway is the street for Honky-Tonkin so an evening visit is a must.
