We’re a quickly growing company and always interested in getting to know rad individuals who might be a good fit for our team. See all our open positions here.
While we don’t offer tours at this time, you’ll be able to watch your beer being brewed from the comfort of our taproom.
Our partnership with Black Dynasty makes hosting events at Sylvan Supply difficult, but we’re always open to hearing about what kind of events you have in mind! Reach out to [email protected] with an event description, date, time, and number of guests.
While we don’t offer tours, you can watch your beer being brewed and packaged from the comfort of the taproom!
We offer a number of private space/event options! Please keep in mind that production runs nearly 24/7 at our Germantown location and that means it’s going to sound and smell like, well, brewing. We offer complete taproom rentals Mon-Thursdays only. If you are wanting to bring a large group into the taproom for any type of event, please send an email that includes an event description, date, time, and number of guests to [email protected].
We’ve got all the swag to keep your fit right for sale in both taprooms and in our online Shop.
We have a smaller selection of swag on offer at Sylvan, but you can browse our full catalog in our online Shop.
Our Germantown beers are all named after specific cultivars, or unique types, of bearded iris flower, each one with its own color palette and presentation. Horticulturists can devote entire lifetimes to the pursuit of bringing forth the tiniest detail or color pattern. Our brewery name and original beer naming scheme pay homage to the relentless pursuit of improvement, of new discovery, and of innovation. A philosophy further encompassed by our company motto, “cultivate variety.”
The beers at our Sylvan Supply locations employ a unique naming scheme derived from our Germantown naming, but centered around personas that urge our guests to relax into the exciting and mysterious possibilities their experience with us might bring.
Our birthday is February 6, 2016. Please send cake.
Our Sylvan Supply taproom opened to the public June 18, 2021.
Well-behaved fur babies and small humans are welcome! However, both of our taprooms are production facilities, so we ask that you please keep an eye on your kiddos for safety and keep your fur babies on the patios.
We don’t have a kitchen on-site at Germantown, but our taproom is always BYOfood! Feel free to bring in snacks, a full meal, or have something delivered to our doorstep to satisfy those cravings.
Our Sylvan Supply location features a ramen spot from our friends at Black Dynasty Secret Ramen House which opened on October 31! Their menu changes frequently to showcase seasonal ingredients and creativity, but will always have options for ramen bowls and bar snacks. They are open at 5PM everyday!
TL; DR: we’re named after the Tennessee state flower.
A little more: while the tall bearded iris is the Tennessee state flower and we proudly hail from Nashville, Tennessee, bearded irises grow worldwide and are a unifier and shared experience for many people. Our name represents the power of accessibility and global community. The bearded iris is a symbol of boldness and elegance, of understated style and timeless appeal—something we strive to achieve in our beers and our company presence.
