TailGate Brewery Opens Thursday At Former Terminal Brewhouse Site

Wednesday, June 1, 2022

TailGate Brewery is set to open its first taproom outside the Nashville area, and fourth overall, on Thursday. TailGate Brewery Chattanooga will open to the public at 3 p.m., and the brewery invites all lovers of craft beer and craft pizza to enjoy a pint over opening weekend. It will open in the former Terminal Brewhouse at 1464 Market St.  

TailGate Brewery Chattanooga will open with 30 taps from TailGate’s diverse list of beers, ciders, and seltzers. The taproom itself will serve as the brewer’s farmhouse and Belgian-style ale production facility, with a seven barrel brewhouse on site. Six beers are in the works to be rolled out at different stages of opening weekend.

“We’re known for moving quickly,” said Marketing Manager Liz Tarry. “We have one owner and no investors, so that’s something we’re able to do. In this case, folks have been asking us to open a taproom in Chattanooga for years, so we’re going to get open as soon as possible to serve our friends. It may not be perfect, but it will be fun.”

Reggie Small is set to helm the operation as general manager. Promoted from within, Mr. Small previously led TailGate’s Headquarters taproom. “I’m super excited to open,” he said. ‘Bringing the full TailGate experience to Chattanooga has been a dream of ours for years, and we can’t wait to make it happen this Thursday.”
