Beer is only one of the items on the menu at the sprawling new Hop Springs Beer Park, located on a picturesque pasture just east of Murfreesboro. In addition to the 60-barrel brewhouse – the largest in Tennessee – Hop Springs also planse a dog park, an 18-hole disc golf course, a 5-kilometer walking trail that encircles the property (with a pond overlook), and a 5,000-seat outdoor music amphitheater. Hop Springs also promotes a health-and-wellness program that includes yoga classes every weekend.
“Hop Springs is all about quality of life and what we can offer to the community,” says Mark Jones, CEO of Life is Brewing, which owns Hop Springs. “We want to introduce people to the outdoors and music and a healthy lifestyle, with a very nice selection of beer in the background.”
