Kevin Antoon, Jamie Lee, and Jared Welch met in the corporate world. Their weekends spent homebrewing quickly evolved when they shed their business attire and decided to go all in–opening a 430 square foot brewery in East Nashville with a modest seating area. The doors opened in February of 2016 staffed by the three founders and their wives.
The folks at Southern Grist are boundary-pushers, constantly evolving what beer is and what it can taste like. Their ingredients aren’t always Reinheitsgebot-approved but that’s okay. We like it that way and we think you will too.
The beer is small-batch and experimental, and as a result it’s usually not around for very long!
