HMSHost this week brings local craft beer brand Fat Bottom Brewing to the new Concourse D at Nashville International Airport (BNA) so travelers can sip flagship drafts while watching planes come and go on the tarmac.

Fat Bottom tapped its first beer back in 2012 in East Nashville and has continued to grow alongside the city. It opened a kiosk in 2018 in BNA Concourse C and this new location provides even more opportunities for passenger to get a taste of the Nashville beer scene.

The opening is in partnership with the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA), global restaurateur HMSHost and Fraport USA, the developer and manager of the retail, food and beverage operations at BNA.

“Nothing says Nashville like a cold Fat Bottom draft,” said Bryan Loden, HMSHost vice president of business development. “We are thankful to the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority and Fraport USA for their partnership to bring Nashville’s craft beer scene into the airport.”
