Tennessee Brew WorksTennessee Brew Works, which is coming to Nashville in the spring of 2013, finally has a home.

Founders Garr Schwartz and Christian Spears announced today that their production brewery will be located at 809 Ewing Avenue in downtown Nashville, close to Yazoo Brewing Company and Jackalope Brewing Co.

The 21,000-square-foot building was an old printing company, with 20- to 24-foot ceilings throughout. The brewery will feature a roughly 3,000-square-foot taproom.

We’re very excited about the location, which has plenty of room for production and a nice tasting room!” Schwartz and Spears wrote in an e-mail to supporters. “Lots of planning and hard work behind and ahead of us! We’re looking forward to serving you ‘Finely Tuned Craft Beers’ this Spring. We thank you for your support!”

Schwartz and Spears hope to open Tennessee Brew Works by April. The brewery will initially distribute in Nashville, but the founders plan to ultimately distribute statewide, including a presence in Memphis.
