October is here which means one thing for brew lovers- OCTOBERFEST!
Luckily, Memphis has some incredible breweries, and I was fortunate enough to visit a few of them. Ya’ll- this was SO fun! Whether you’re a beer drinker or not, there is something for everyone’s taste buds! Below you will see photos of some of the places we have recently visited when I had my camera. Hahah.
-Crosstown Brewing Co. is a must-do. The guys who started this brewery are the coolest- they turned their love of beer and backyard beer making into something incredible. Since February 2018, their brewery been one of the most successful kick starter businesses in Memphis, and it goes to show dreams really do come true. With 11 beers on tap and more to come, you’re sure to find a beer you will love!
-Recommended Beer: Trafic IPA / Siren Blond Ale. For those of you who do not like beer, the Margarita Beer is a great light and citrusy beer~
Memphians David and Kellan had a vision to open “the best brewery ever”. It seems they have achieved their goal. Wiseacare Brewery On Broad has been around since 2013. It’s location is amazing considering it’s in the art district. So much to see! Among their unique options, they use local honey in their beer from Mr. Deaton in MS.
-Recommended Beer: Tiny bomb/Gotta Get up To get Down
Ghost River has indoor and outdoor seating which in my opinion is a major plus. They host plenty of weekly events, including trivia on Wednesdays, shop small Saturdays with local vendors, food trucks, brunch and live music on Sundays.
-Recommended beer- Riverbank Red / Ghost River Gold / P.S. I Love you
Located off of Monroe Avenue by Sun Studios, High Cotton Brewing Co is a favorite for tourists since it’s near Sun Studios, and with it’s southern roots this brewery is a must to stop in to.
The taproom a full production brewery with tasting a room which is pretty neat. They also just build a patio so go grab a nice cold one and relax in the sun!
-Recommend beer- Mexican Lager / Hefeweizen

-Recommended beer- Fireside / Junt
