Let's Head Over to the Creek
Long over due but here it is, a post about one of my favorite localish spots. Panther Creek Brews. If you're familiar with Older Murfreesboro if you're coming from the square take a right on Main, pass the old 527 club (idk what it is now) over the track and on the right is Murfreesboro's best kept secret. Our on PCB, no not Panama City Beach but Panther Creek Brews.
PCB has quickly established itself as one of Middle Tennessee's premier breweries. With staples like Porchlyfe, Creek Smoke and Fresh Pressed they have set the bar. However they are not afraid to experiment and push boundaries with series like their Soda Jerk and Two Scoops, even creating Dope Whip for National Dole Whip day ( I just found out this year that's a thing). I haven't been to Disney but I did enjoy this treat at the taproom and took some home!
The taproom itself is what I would consider medium sized but spills out back to an open area that is great in the evenings and for hosting the talented musicians and comics they have come through. Inside there is bar seating with a few tables and booths. It begs you to stay and strike up a conversation with your fellow beer nerd. Apologies to those who love craft beer but don't feel nerdy. Outside of the draft selection which features mostly PCB taps with a few guest taps there is a cooler to take home tasty PCB cans.
Outback there is a performance space with picnic tables and also connect four. Plenty of room for stretching your legs and enjoying a beautiful Tennessee evening. It's a great space to grab food from one of the rotating local food trucks and enjoy a meal, a beer (or a few) and some great entertainment. However, brutal summer days are definitely made for inside the taproom where the beer is cold and the atmosphere is warm.
The bar staff has been friendly and knowledgeable any time I have been in and are always eager to set you up with a tasty brew you will enjoy, or a frozen treat they have created. Personally the Peach Two Scoops is my favorite beer to snag any time they have it on tap there. I've yet to go wrong with a selection yet, Beer Flavored Bier is exactly as advertised and just as good as a beer flavored bier lover could hope for. They are very active on their socials so check them out if you plan to visit, their IG is @panthercreekbrews and check out their menu on untappd. The brewery scene in the Boro is growing but this one is a can't miss! Hit me back if you get and let me know what you think you can find me on IG @whatshoppinwithgro and also on Untappd also @whatshoppinwithgro
