Pleasant View's Flytes Brewhouse has announced a collaboration with county music superstars The Cadillac Three. The new product, Country Buzz Beer, is a honey amber ale brewed with Cascade Hops and honey (5.5% ABV). Country Buzz is now available at Ryman concessions during TC3’s shows as well as at Flytes and select locations in Nashville and surrounding areas.


“I discovered Flytes on a motorcycle ride one day and quickly became a fan,” recounts The Cadillac Three's lap-steel guitarist Kelby Ray.


“Fast forward about a year and it turns out, owners John and Trish Nelson are actually fans of ours too so we all thought it would be pretty cool to create something. We all got together and created our own unique flavor! Country Buzz Beer is just like us – unexpected, refreshing and a little buzzed! If you’re a beer fan, you’ll love Country Buzz!”


The 2019 opening of Flytes Brewhouse was the beginning of a dream that spanned two decades. Leaving the West Coast in the rearview mirror and setting their sights on small-town life and brewery ownership, the beer-loving couple has enjoyed much success since the brewhouse opened its doors two years ago.

"We never thought after being in business for only 2 years that we would be signing a deal with a major Country band for a collaboration beer," say John and Trish Nelson.


"This wouldn't have been possible without the support of the community, our employees, family and friends. We feel truly blessed that we were able to collaborate with The Cadillac Three and have our beer at the Ryman Auditorium."


Truly a product of their raising, The Cadillac Three returned to their hometown of Nashville for a two-night stint at the Ryman Auditorium on September 1 and 2, exuding the same fervor of their youth. Singer-guitarist Jaren Johnston, drummer Neil Mason, and lap-steel guitarist Kelby Ray have been performing together since their high school days and officially celebrate a decade as TC3 with their 10th Anniversary Tour, which traverses the globe through December.
