GUEST BLOG / By Kevin
Revolinski, Writer, CraftBeer.com
Tennessee selection of breweries along the Great River Road perks up with you
reach the Birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll: Memphis. With plenty of blues and
barbecue to pair with your beers, you also have a bevy of attractions to
explore: Graceland, Memphis Rock’n’Soul Museum, Sun Studios, the National Civil
Rights Museum and more.
you plan to stroll Beale Street, the closest brewery is High Cotton Brewing, with up to 10 beers on tap. Ghost River Brewing is closer to the
river itself, and a 20-minute walk off of the west end of Beale. Its mainstays
are very approachable with a cream ale, golden ale and Irish-style red which
are also bottled, and the brewery brings out Oktoberfest and other seasonals.
Brewers’ Series beers go experimental. No food here but food trucks often serve
and so do other local vendors.
Memphis is not as beer-sodden as St. Louis or the Twin Cities, there are enough
breweries to easily fill two or three days if you take in some of the sights.
