Going to Nashville for a couple of days and was wondering where to stop by for a couple of pints.

Yazoo, Blackstones and Boscos are always good choices for solid brews.

Now for consumption you may want to eye Flying Saucer, Broadway Brewhouse (have never been there), or Mellow Mushroom (there either).

Blackstone had the best lineup when I was there.  Well-crafted, normal beers that you would like to drink.  Nothing goofy.  No hipsters.  Bosco's had good beer and food, but was really loud.

FWIW - Dave Miller (yes that Dave Miller) was at Blackstones and I heard he retired, but has since returned.

Is that recent?  I was there in March and they said he had been out for 3 years.

Ahh, found it, must have been in the last few months...our deadlines for June are May 1 so sometime before then:
