Yazoo Brewing Expands and Relocates at Nashville International Airport

HMSHost brings larger kiosk bar for travelers to enjoy local beer, pick up a 6-pack to take home

NASHVILLE, TN —Nashville International Airport’s renowned Yazoo Brewing Company beer cart operated by global restaurateur HMSHost has upgraded to a new, larger kiosk. The new Yazoo Brewing Company kiosk is still on Concourse C, but has relocated to the end of the concourse near Gate C-23.

“Yazoo beer is a southern tradition and we are proud to expand this already popular location with this pioneering Nashville brand in the airport,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Kent Vanden Oever. “We thank the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority for the opportunity to make these enhancements that convey the best of the great city of Nashville to our airport guests.”

The Yazoo Brewing kiosk offers all beers on draft, which travelers can enjoy at the bar, walking through the concourse, or at their gate. Six-packs of bottles are also available for purchase to enjoy later at your final destination.

“After five years at our location near the Concourse C food court, Yazoo is excited to celebrate 15 years of brewing in Nashville with a new, larger brewery kiosk at the end of Concourse C,” said Yazoo Brewing Founder and Brewmaster Linus Hall. “Our new location with HMSHost will feature a wide Yazoo selection, all proudly handcrafted in Nashville, and all within easy walking distance for the majority of travelers flying out on Southwest airlines.”

The kiosk is larger than the original location, now incorporating more seating for travelers, as well as a back bar mounted television, and designated seating within the boarding area.

Yazoo beers featured at Nashville International Airport include the original Pale Ale, Dos Perros, Sly Rye Porter, and the award-winning Sue and Hefeweizen. Travelers finding it difficult to pick just one beer to try can opt to take their taste buds through a whirlwind of flavors with a sampler “flight” which features 6 different brews.

“Opening in 2013 at BNA, Yazoo Brewing Company was our first local craft beer kiosk, and we’re pleased to see Yazoo expanding its operations with a new location at the end of Concourse C,” said Doug Kreulen, Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority president and CEO. “With Yazoo Brewing Company’s additional space, more passengers will have the opportunity to try one of Music City’s favorite hometown beers.”

HMSHost operates several restaurants at Nashville International Airport, providing original and regional dining experiences to travelers such as the Berry Field Bistro, Tennessee Tavern, Gibson Café, and more. A list of existing HMSHost-operated locations at Nashville International Airport is available on the HMSHost location finder map.
