NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - A brewery in East Nashville continues rebuilding after tornadoes damaged their building.

At Crazy Gnome Brewery, science also comes from the sky. Mother nature crashed the party.

“Yeah, we had a big tornado. It tore the building apart, tore it all apart,” Owner Grayson Miller said. “It was pretty surreal. It knocked out the interior walls.”

Miller just wanted to make beer, a hobby he picked up in college.

It’s a lot more fun than his day job. Even with a tornado hangover and a full-time accounting job, pints in a pub are still possible.

“We had to find a way to get it done,” Miller said.

All of this is crazy as the name in beer form.

“I think I am hairy and crazy,” Miller said.
