Nashville Craft Distillery Joins The Vibrant And Growing Wedgewood Houston Food And Drink Scene

Tuesday, May 24 brings the official introduction of a new face on the Nashville distillery scene: Nashville Craft, a craft spirits company that focuses on local and regional ingredients and makes its debut with a fittingly Southern first offering.


Their Craft distillery at 514 Hagan Street in Wedgewood-Houston has been chugging along behind closed doors since March, creating Naked Biscuit — a spirit made with 100 percent pure sorghum syrup from the Tennessee hills — among other in-process products. But the doors are officially open to the public now, and that includes the new tasting room, which’ll be giving us the chance to sample and purchase Naked Biscuit. (Lots of other spirits are on the way, including gin, brandy and whiskey — though the latter, at least, requires years of aging before we’ll be able to catch the first pours.)

Along with a unique first release, Nashville Craft has a unique back story, too: It was launched by former DNA laboratory director Bruce Boeko (below, right). So — just an assumption — we can probably expect the exacting quality control that comes with earning the right to wear a lab coat. Even if these days he’s probably looking at fewer beakers and Bunsen burners, more copper stills and oak barrels.

The doors’ll be open for tastings/purchases on Hagan Street Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and there’s more info and more peeks into the distillery at NashvilleCraft.com.


Nashville Craft joins a growing drinking/eating scene in Wedgewood-Houston that mirrors the neighborhood’s overall growth. Other noteworthy Wedgewood-Houston names: Dozen Bakery operates right next to Nashville Craft, at 516 Hagan; Bastion bar and restaurant (the latter part just opened this month), led by former Catbird Seat chef Josh Habiger, is at 434 Houston; Corsair Artisan Distillery opened its third distillery at 601 Merritt; and food truck-turned-restaurant Smokin Thighs slings chicken and lots of moonshine at 611 Wedgwood Avenue. 


Reportedly coming soon:


Middle Tennessee’s first commercial craft cidery, Diskin Cider, is expected to join in come the middle of next year.


Eater Nashville says the owners of the St. Roch Market in New Orleans are looking to create a similar food hall concept in the old May Hosiery Mill.


Another Bongo Java coffee shop and a market are expected in the new mixed-use Six10 Merritt development.


People around Nashville have been calling Wedgewood-Houston an up-and-coming neighborhood for a while now. I’d say it’s pretty much up and come.


Is all this making you think about settling down in the neighborhood? Check out some homes on the market now in Wedgewood-Houston.
