Schulz Brau

Not too long ago I finally got the opportunity to visit Schulz Brau take a look around, hangout and have a few beers.  Schulz Brau sits on Bernard Ave. just off a Central a little ways up from downtown, but not quite to Happy Holler.  It's kind of between Magpies and Hops and Hollers.  The outside looks like a cinder block castle and frankly looks pretty odd.  But don't ever let the outside scare you away, inside is where it starts to impress.  The place is gorgeous inside.  Nice tables, beautiful bar and video board menus hanging above the bar.  No expense looks to have been spared inside and just out the back door is a quite roomy biergarten for enjoying beverages and hanging with friends.  The beers are good too.  I was partial to their Schwartzbier myself, but also enjoyed their dunkel.  They rotate a good selection of their own beers mixed with a lot of regional craft brews and some national ones as well.  When I was in all were served in various sizes, so choose a smaller size and sample a few if you like....or if you know what you like get the big stein.

 Ala in all this place is worth a visit and could see them getting busy as the Vols football schedule gets ramped up to bigger games this fall.  Their outdoor area could be a huge draw once the temperature outside dips just a little and fall is here.  Spots at one of their many outdoor tables shipped over from Germany could be rare, so get there early and enjoy what they have to offer.
