The Space

Fat Bottom Brewing started with a man and a dream. Starting with a hobby and passion for brewing Ben Bredesen honed his expertise in the skill and science of beer-making through countless hours slaving over vats of steaming grains. Although Ben had a successful career in software, his ultimate goal was to own and operate his own business. After some serious evaluation, he knew he wouldn’t be happy unless he turned his home-brewing hobby into a full-time career. In 2011, he leased a space in East Nashville and started Fat Bottom Brewing.

Opening its doors in August of 2012, and as East Nashville’s first brewery, Fat Bottom Brewing quickly became a neighborhood favorite. The recipes were developed from Ben ’s time as a home brewer, and scaled up to fit the newly installed 15 barrel brewhouse.
