The makers of Ole Shed beer, Tullahoma’s first and only microbrewery, have recently opened their own taproom adjacent to the production facility at 516 E. Carroll Street.

“We wanted to give people a nice place to come sample some Old Shed, learn about it and mingle with other folks who like craft beer,” said Mike Ramsey, who co-owns the startup with partner Mike Thornburg.

The taproom features original and seasonal varieties of the draft-only beer for $4 per pint, including tax.

Customers who wish to take some home may also purchase refillable, 64-ounce “growler” jugs for $15 each and $10 per refill.

Hours of operation are currently limited to weekends only, 4 to 8 p.m. on Fridays and 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. Saturdays.

“We’ll be offering guided tours of the brewery on Saturdays, and we’ll be posting signs about that soon,” Ramsey said.  “Those who attend will get a free souvenir Ole Shed glass.”

Hats, T-shirts and other merchandise are also for sale inside the pub.
