The Black Abbey Brewing Company to Open New Facility in South Nashville

Posted By on Thu, Mar 21, 2013 at 11:03 AM

My compatriot Sean L. Maloney may have a new reason to love The Road soon as The Black Abbey Brewing Company has announced that they are starting construction of a new 11,000-square-foot facility will include brewing equipment as well as a tasting room, which will serve as a retail outlet for beer and other merchandise at 2952 Sidco Drive in the old Southern Library Binding building. The South Nashville/Nolensville Road area has been underserved in the craft beer boom (though I've been overserved at Twin Kegs before ...), and Black Abbey founder Carl Meier is excited to be bringing his brand of Belgian-inspired ales to the neighborhood.

We have a portfolio of unique and delicious beer that we are excited to deliver to the Greater Nashville market,” says Meier. He plans to lean on 600 years of brewing tradition, starting with styles that Martin Luther himself might have enjoyed. The motto for Black Abbey's line of craft beers is, appropriately, “Created. Not Made.”

“Luther and his wife brewed beer for the community surrounding Wittenberg Germany, creating an
opportunity for fellowship around good conversation and great beer,” Meier explained. “We love the idea
of bringing people together and promoting community through common interests. We want our tasting
room to become a ‘Fellowship Hall’ — a place where people can get to know one another, and get to know us and our personable beers.”

Black Abbey has been a favorite of the craft brew festival circuit since its founding in 2011, and they hope to have the facility up and running by this fall.
