Last week’s Friday Drankin’, unlike the game itself, was a success. One of our readers was looking for a spot before the game and stopped by the Depot Brewing in Reno and said the offerings were excellent. Purdue is at home this week, but we’re still going to look at a brewery in our opponent’s home town. This week I picked Blackstone Brewing, which is 1.3 miles from Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville.

Blackstone Brewing

2312 Clifton Avenue

Nashville, TN

Blackstone Brewing is celebrating its 25th year this year after opening in 1994. They have won multiple medals at the Great American Beer Festival and is Nashville’s oldest brewery:

Our 30 barrel brewhouse was manufactured by ROLEC Prozess- und Brautechnik GmbH in Chieming, Germany. Rolec provided all of the equipment from the silo to the cellar. The star is their fully automated 4 vessel brewhouse. It is just as functional as it is beautiful; producing quality and consistent beer.

Blackstone bottles many of its offerings and they are available in the Nashville area. Here are some of their award winning choices:

St. Charles Porter – Category: Brown Porter

2013 Silver – Great American Beer Festival

2010 Silver – Great American Beer Festival

2009 Gold – Great American Beer Festival

2008 Bronze – World Beer Cup

2007 Bronze – Great American Beer Festival

2006 Silver – Great American Beer Festival

2004 Silver – Great American Beer Festival

1999 Bronze – Great American Beer Festival

1996 Bronze – Great American Beer Festival

1996 Gold – World Beer Cup

Nut Brown Ale – Category: English-Style Brown Ale

2007 Silver – Great American Beer Festival

2001 Silver – Great American Beer Festival

2000 Gold – World Beer Cup

1998 Bronze – World Beer Cup

Chaser Pale - German-Style Kölsch/Köln-Style Kölsch

2010 Bronze – World Beer Cup

They have several other choices available at their taproom, which replaced their Brewpub. The Brewpub part closed in 2016. They have a seasonal pumpkin ale, several stouts, and multiple IPAs.

I know there is a large Purdue contingent in Nashville, so check out Blackstone if you have the chance.
