Little Seed Farm Jackalope Soap
In 2012, Eileen & James Ray moved from New York City to rural Lebanon, Tennessee to start a goat farm.  They've since partnered with Nashville's own Jackalope Brewing Company to make fresh-and-so-clean smelling beer soap.  That's right... Beer soap.  Their creations are available with features from Jackalope's Rompo, Bearwalker, or Thunder Ann!

Brooklyn Brine Company Hop-Pickle
We're big fans of pickles, and let us just tell you - These are good pickles.  With a little help from Dogfish Head's 60 Minute IPA, onions, and cascade hops, these pickles have a distinctly delicious taste that goes well on sandwiches or are great their own!

Getting a growler filled in this town isn't a hard task these days - Though getting a growler filled that you can take to the pool, hiking, tailgating, or camping might be a different story... Until now.  Thanks to the clever design of the EcoGrowler, you can now have your favorite craft beer ready for any outdoor occasion.  EcoGrowler is currently available locally at Mr. Whiskers and Rock Bottom, though you may order them online as well!

Sean Brock's Heritage
Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you're well aware of the buzz that Sean Brock's restaurant Husk has received in both Nashville and Charleston, SC.  Brock now shares recipes to some of his signature southern eats in his new cookbook, Heritage.

Olive & Sinclair Chocolate
Who doesn't like chocolate?  Seriously... And no one does it better than Nashville's own Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Company.  You may have tasted their chocolate in Terrapin's Moo-Hoo or Reunion Ale, though their variety of chocolate bars are definitely worth a try.  We recommend the Mexican Style Chocolate bar, though they're all great!

B-Hoppy Hop Candy
Ever wondered what beer candy would taste like?  B-Hoppy's hop candy creations are probably the closest that you'll get - And they are actually great.  Made with real hops, these candies taste a bit like an IPA hard candy.  Not too shabby, right?

Blis Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup
As if maple syrup wasn't delicious enough, Blis goes the extra mile by aging theirs in 20+ year old bourbon barrels.  In fact, if you've ever had Founders' Canadian Breakfast Stout, Better Half, or Sweet Repute, you've tasted beers that have been aged in used Blis barrels.

Blis Blast Hot Pepper Sauce
While you're at it, you might want to pick up Blis' Blast Hot Pepper Sauce which was aged in spent Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout barrels which once aged Blis Maple Syrup, which once aged 20+ year old bourbon.  The flavor is rich, slightly smoky, and not overly hot.
