Happy New Year Clarksville! We hope you’ve had a great one so far! We’re excited to continue to showcase all the great businesses in Clarksville. For our first #FeatureFriday of 2022, we want to introduce you to Evill Nash Brewing Co. owned and operated by James Miller.
James’s brewing journey started out in San Diego. He was working at a restaurant brewery as a delivery driver and was asked to help the brewer because he was the only person available. A few years later he was given another opportunity to get into brewing and ended up falling in love with it. From there he quit his job and pursued brewing full time.
James made his way to Clarksville in 2015 after falling in love with Tennessee on a previous visit. He originally wanted to open a brewery in Nashville, but the cost made Clarksville a more desirable location. Evill Nash Brewing was officially opened in 2019. He writes his own brewing recipes and tries to stay away from the traditional methods. His beers change in and out depending on what he has to work with and his own imagination.
Some flavors are inspired by other food and drinks, whereas others are just spur of the moment. Recently he was eating beaver nuggets and was inspired to make a beer of the same flavor. He has made beers inspired by popular cocktails. He has one coming out that’s called the Dark and Stormy which is based on the cocktail of the same name. In the past, he has had Margarita IPAs and Pina Colada beers. James’s willingness to experiment with different flavors and techniques make Evil Nash different from other breweries. He doesn’t play it safe. The beers on tap are constantly rotating. However, this year he will bring four staple beers that will be available year-round.
