Clarksville is steeped in agrarian and military tradition. Wilma Rudolph, Jimi Hendrix and Pat Summit are just a few iconic Clarksville connections in history. Now, the likes of LG and Hankook are calling the Queen City home, bringing their food ways along with them. It’s no wonder why this northern Middle Tennessee town’s culinary scene is just as diverse as its communities. From classic favorites to budding trendsetters, you’ll want to salute these tastemakers opening the kitchen door of the “Gateway to the New South.”
In only two years, Clarksville has matured from a one-brewery town to a true libation destination with a new craft distillery, three new breweries and a fourth slated to open in 2019. The city's breweries are all distinctly different but share a passion for the nationwide craft movement and the goal to foster an appreciation for micro brewing’s meticulous process and countless flavors.
Clarksville makers churn out wine, artisan brews and spirits with craft precision. Check out the variety of libations at these six spots -- all made right here in Clarksville.
