This is a must visit beer destination if you are in Nashville. Took the tour and enjoyed some pints before and after in the tap room. The tour was a lot of fun, the service was friendly and knowledgeable and the beer was very good. Tap room was absolutely rammed (likely because it was a Saturday) but the atmosphere was great and it is a place I would definitely return to.
Had the cheese plate as well, which was excellent and also was good value.

Really cool area in Nashville. Believe the area/neighborhood is called the Gulch. Several bars and the Jackalope Brewery is just down the street. Took the tour and enjoyed it. Believe it was $7 but you got to keep the pint glass. You got to try the Hefeweizen, the Pale Ale and the Dos Perros during the tour.
Really enjoyed their Dos Perros beer.

even though we got there an hour before the 5p tour, we only got to enjoy a pint given the long line for beer. one of the bottling ops guys led our tour, or that was his story. nice guy & i appauld his effort. tried the dos perros, pale, and hefe on the tour in a yazoo sniffer (i was bummed as our friend got a pint glass during her tour). beers are OK. dos perros is by far their best. parking is a complete PITA. interior space is tight at 4p on a saturday afternoon & the hours are limited.

Stopped in this past Thursday afternoon just after their tasting room opened on a beer tour of Nashville that started at Bosco's then finished at Blackstone and Big River. This place was far and away the best of the four. The other three places had that chain pub vibe, basically restaurants that made beers of varying quality to go with the food. This place is a brewery, proper. These people get it.
This is not a pub or a restaurant, although they serve a few basic snacks (chips with locally made organic salsa- yum!) and they had a local food truck parked outside with some interesting options we didn't try. Don't go for dinner, but for what they were trying to do, provide some basic munchies while you enjoy the beer and socialize, it was above average.
Atmosphere and service were superb. A well-sized, well-laid out and well-decorated tasting room that let groups of various sizes function. Now about that: when we got there, right inside the door a table had been set up with name tags and brochures. I thought it might be a private function at first but it wasn't. About two thirds of the crowd were these super clean-cut and plastic-friendly people with these name tags, and talking in twos and threes. I thought it was either one of those speed dating things or maybe a Young Republicans happy hour, but it turned out to be something more like a cross between Scientology and a pyramid scheme. After my husband and I had been there for 20 minutes or so, having a good time but wondering what the hell was going on, some dude in this group up front by the bar raised his voice to gather the crowd's attention and introduced "the man who made this all possible", a guy who looked like a television psychologist or something, who began to speak about something about "social engineering". Anyways, the 2/3 of the crowd that were a part of this group were all in rapt attention. That's when I noticed that the bluegrass music that had been on in the background immediately got several notches louder. Across the room I saw the guy who introduced the other guy walk over and talk to the manager, who shook his head. Finally the guy talking gave up and moved the crowd to the far corner of the room where he talked to them all in a football huddle for 20 minutes.
As our helpful, knowledgeable server came by for another round, I thanked him for sticking up for the people who were there for the beer, not the marketing cult or whatever the hell it was. He said he had no idea who they were and they didn't arrange this in advance, they just showed up, set up a table and started talking. As we were paying our tab, I sought out the manager and thanked him with a handshake. The taproom is only open Thursday-Saturday, and he said he would have been more than happy to open another day for a private party if they called in advance but since they just showed up, his priority was his regulars and his beer people and he wasn't turning down his music. Like I said... they get it. This earned them their 5's in atmosphere and service.
The beer itself is definitely the best in Nashville, probably the state, possibly even the mid-to-lower South. All good and true to style, if not better than style. I'm normally a big beer guy, so the surprising gem to me was the Dos Perros, which here is listed incorrectly as a mild American Brown. It is an Alt beer and comes in in the mid 5.0% range, and was without question the best Alt I have had in years. How many places even bother with an alt, come to think of it, let alone take the time to make a great one?
This place came towards the tail end of a 6-day tour of the south that my husband and I took where we visited 27 different breweries. Yazoo ranks amongst the best of the bunch, and should not be missed if you're anywhere near Nashville on an afternoon when they're open.

My fiancé and I went to Nashville and decided to book a tour spot at Yazoo for a 6:30 on a Saturday. The tour guide was very outgoing and friendly, but lacked a little in brewery terminology, but that's fine as this tour is more about drinking and hanging out than it is about brewing. We each paid $7, got a nice pint glass we got to keep and got "samples" of a few beers. I say "samples" because the first pour I got was 3/4 a full pint, drank half of it and then got topped off and that's how it went. I think I got about 3 1/2-4 full beers and actually had to turn some down!
The taproom itself was extremely crowded, loud and long lines for beer. Parking was tough to find as well. Their beer is reasonably priced though, I think $4 a pint and it's pretty good beer. Definitely woth checking out if you're in town.

Yazoo is a great "long time" establishment in Nashville. I've lived here for 4 years and this was one of the first places I visited after moving, back when it was in Marathon Village, where Corsair Artisan Distillery is now. On any given day that Yazoo is open, expect long lines at the bar and to stand due to so many people in the tap room and on the patio. Their brewery tour is great for those wanting to dive deeper into the history and process of Yazoo. Beers are decent, but their involvement within the community is outstanding, offering excess yeast and spent grains to local bakers and farmers, as well as sponsoring events and a variety of teams.

Friendly people working the counter, and a good (not great) selection of brews. I will say that this place is nothing like the old tap room. The old location was a funky store with a coffee shop atmosphere that served beer. The new place is a blank high school cafeteria-esque space (saving grace -- it, too, serves beer).
Still, the beer is pretty good, and the people are friendly. And I feel like a sampler flight was very reasonably priced. I recommend a stop in if you're in the area and have some time to kill, or if you've never had anything from yazoo and want an opportunity for a quick sampler. It's definitely not a must-see, though, especially if you're familiar with the brews.

Great atomosphere and friendly service. The parking lot was a bit crowded but we found a spot at the back next to the dumpster where rats fled a wagon of spent grain. Not a great first impression, but inside it was very spacious. Also a nice outdoor patio. Packed full of people. We missed the tour, but we got a flight and the beer was top notch quality craft brews. Nothing that blew my socks off, but the service was informative and friendly. I think the nitro stout was my favorite. Very inexpensive as each sample was about a buck. However, when I went up after buying a flight and asked for sample glasses of other beers that wasn't on the flight they didn't charge me anything. Very friendly and comfortable atmosphere.

I've been to the Yazoo brewery and taproom maybe a half a dozen times now and have always had a good experience, either when having a pint or two after work or popping in for a growler fill.
The place is pretty spacious, but usually crowded. It'd be nice if there were more parking available, but I think that's par for the course downtown. The beer quality is always good and the service is top notch -- everyone I've spoken with was friendly and helpful. I took a tour led by one of the brewers recently and had a great time. They took time to answer all questions and show us all the facilities.

If you are visiting Nashville as I did last month definitely make a trip to the Yazoo Brewery and take the tour. It is a small place with a nice tap room. I believe they had a couple cold appetizers but no food other than that. The beer was good, not amazing, but the brewery tour was fun and they gave you LOTS of beer for only about $7. I will go back next time I am in Nashville even though I probably wouldn't buy their beer in the store if I saw it. I just liked the vibe of the place... The hop project was my favorite beer but that changes because they do new hop varieties each time they brew it.
