|Memphis at Night!|
GUEST BLOG / By Kevin Revolinski, Writer, CraftBeer.com
The 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.
If 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.
While 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.
