3. Mantra Artisan Ales
216 Noah Drive, Franklin TN 37064
Mantra Artison Ales took over the brewery where Turtle Anarchy was located, and turned it into a gem of a lounge and working brewery. On one side of the wall is the working brewery, where the magic happens. On the other side is their taproom, which features 23 varieties that they brew there. Some, such as the Summer Salt, can only be ordered in their taproom. Others include old favorites, like the Saffron IPA and new rages like the Bhang Bhang, the Japa or the Battle Ground. Tours are available and include a free pint.
Hours: 3 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 3 to 10 p.m. Friday, 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, 12 p.m. through 8 p.m. Sunday.
