Magdeburg is located along the Elbe River in northern Germany about 90 miles west of Berlin. The importance of the city extends from the middle ages through the Reformation to the present. Just to the east of the former inner-German border, Magdeburg is now the capital of Saxony-Anhalt. It has maintained a very active partnership with Nashville for several years and became its official sister city in 2003.
About Nashville Brewing Company
The Nashville Brewery began operating in 1859; opening its doors to a blossoming city. Located just outside the city center on High Street (now 6th Avenue), the hand-crafted local beer quickly satisfied the thirst of the hard-working citizens. Though operations halted briefly during the Civil War, the brewery overcame the disruptions and re-opened in 1865. With a focus on German style lagers, the then named Nashville Brewing Company continued to brew quality beer through the end of the 19th century. A historical marker now marks the spot where the brewery once operated in Nashville’s famous “Gulch” district. Nashville Brewing Company is proud to continue this brewing tradition and create the next chapter in this brewery’s history. We hope you enjoy this wonderful beer made by Nashville’s oldest brewery. Cheers!
