Barrel House II BBQ at Nearest Green Distillery

3125 Highway 231 N Shelbyville, TN | | (931) 343-7818

Located on highway 231 just southeast of Nashville in Shelbyville, TN, this spot offers a great place to stretch your legs (when roadtripping as we were at the time), grab a tasty bite to eat, and take in some interesting history about the origins of the Tennessee Whiskey industry all-in-one.

The Barrel House II BBQ restaurant shares a site with the Nearest Green distillery, offering a beautiful rural setting, whiskey tours, tasting room and gift shop. While here, not only can you get some great food, but also learn the amazing story of Nathan Green (Uncle Nearest), “The Best Whiskey Maker the World Never Knew.”

What to order:

The Grilled Cheese on Crack was the fan favorite on this trip, offering your choice of American or Pepper Jack cheese combined with a healthy portion of pulled pork.
