BREWERIES & NIGHTLIFE
Craft breweries have sprung up all over the country in recent years
and their popularity has led to several opening in Bristol.
Bristol Station Brews & Taproom, also in downtown Bristol, is located in the historic Bus Station. The brewery has a 10-barrel brewing system and its goal is to be able to provide a beer for everyone, from beer aficionados to the novice.
Holston River Brewing Company, which opened in 2014 on Volunteer Parkway near Bristol Motor Speedway, was Bristol’s first microbrewery. It contains a brewery, taproom, outdoor area with picnic tables and a stage for live concerts, all encompassed on 138 acres, which also serves as the setting for outdoor concerts and camping. The taproom boasts a wall with a selection of a dozen different taps.
Studio Brew, in historic downtown Bristol, features a 15-barrel microbrewery with 14 and 30 barrel fermenters, as well as tasting rooms. The brewery, which will eventually consist of 20,000 square feet, has over 17 artisan beers in its rotation. Studio Brew’s location is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings and was built in 1907.
Along with the breweries, Bristol is home to plenty of live music and entertainment that can be found most nights. From casual venues to larger concerts and events featuring nationally known entertainers, there’s little doubt you’ll find music and nightlife to fit most tastes.
