We spent the weekend in Nashville, it was the first time I'd been here. So, of course, we took in the Grand Ole Opry. The show was good, and since they had their own specialty beer, I had to try it. It's called Opry Brew, and it's served in a plastic cup, looking light brown with little foam. The smell was mild, but sweet and malty, and the the flavor was pretty good. Too sweet, but pretty good. It was like a honey brown ale, and I was a little tired of it before I finished all 24 ounces. Too much sweetness wears thin with me pretty quick. Still, I was impressed. A lot of the time, big venues with their own signature beer end up letting me down with something that tastes like any other yellow lager. This beer was better than that, and I'm glad I tried it.
