The Black Abbey Brewing Company

Meet Our Nashville Brewery Partner

For the second year running, Jameson Caskmates Irish Whiskey and The Black Abbey Brewing Company are collaborating to bring a barrel-aged beer to Nashville's neighborhoods and to the Great American Beer Festival® this September. Using whiskey barrels shipped all the way from the Jameson Distillery in Midleton, Ireland, The Black Abbey Brewing Company has created a limited edition brew you won’t want to miss. Hear from Co-founder Carl Meier about the brewery, their neighborhood, and the journey to the GABF.

GREAT AMERICAN BEER FESTIVAL® BARREL AGED BEER

Lorica

“Lorica is an ancient Gaelic prayer attributed to St. Patrick, and it's recited for protection and inspiration. This Belgian-style Dubbel is named after it.”

Substantiator

"German Style Dopplebock, cold aged for 5 months in Jameson Irish Whiskey barrels. Rich and malty with balanced oak, vanilla and malt sweetness."

Try these limited edition releases at the Great American Beer Festival® this September.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

"Berry Hill is thriving! In the five years since The Black Abbey was founded, we've seen incredible growth. Vanderbilt Medical Center revitalized an old shopping mall, new bars and restaurants have opened, and the neighborhood has grown in both population and culture.

We chose Berry Hill because of its central location and easy access to the interstate and we are just about five miles from downtown Nashville. We love that we have built a group of regular customers that spend significant time with us at the brewery. We call our taproom Fellowship Hall and that name truly represents the culture of our taproom. We pride ourselves as being a place where people can congregate and share great beer, great conversation, and one another's company."

JAMESON CASKMATES FOOD PAIRING
  • Burger
  • Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition
  • The Black Abbey Lorica
"I’ve been enjoying Lorica with burgers. Lorica is a full-flavored beer, a little bit boozy, with a dry finish. It needs a meal that can stand up for itself! A hamburger, medium-rare, with pickles, onions and a sharp cheese just hits the spot! I also recommend pairing with Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition. Lorica has a gentle note of banana in the nose which pairs nicely with the chocolate/coffee notes I get in Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition. Lorica highlights the big vanilla character derived directly from the Jameson barrels."
