Nashville doesn’t have many options when it comes to finding a fresh beer brewed on-premises. Of course, neither does Atlanta. I’ve been to Boscos in Hillsboro Village before, but last night was the first time I ordered their beer sampler ? 8 draft brews, including 4 seasonals. Last time I was at Boscos, I was a bit harsh on them.
Having tasted their full lineup in one sitting, I may have jumped the gun. Granted, they brew a few unexceptional beers:
- Their hefeweizen (which was interestingly one of their seasonal selections) had an acidic aftertaste
- Their Scottish Ale was simply atrocious. Git yoself a Drafty Kilt, fool.
- Their German Alt beer was a bit one-dimensional
However, Boscos also boasted some very good brews:
- A strong IPA brewed with Cascade and Centennial hops
- A seasonal pale ale ? both hoppy and biscuity
- A passable milk stout (though not up to Duck-Rabbit standards)
- A dern good doppelbock
Will I go back to Boscos? Obviously. With one micro and three or so brewpubs, Nashville makes my local beer choices easy. Will I look forward to it? This time, yes. Their food has always been good, and now I’m looking forward to a full glass of that IPA paired with… something… good.
