Any idea if they have it at Memphis BBQ Co. in Horn Lake?


Looks like you're in luck. There and Applebee's in Horn Lake serve it. According to their locations page

Awesome. Thanks.

What is it similar too? Don't have an incredible amount of knowledge about different beers but I enjoy trying new ones.

Hijack --

I will be in Memphis in early May, mostly in the downtown area. I'm enjoying the food recs and will be referring back to this thread before heading out myself. What are some good/fun drinking spots? I'll be looking to relax with a delicious beer and/or cocktail in the evenings and I'll be there for at least 3 days. I'll also probably check out a playoff game if the Grizzlies can make it out of round 1, which isn't looking likely. Any more great sugestions are very much appreciated.

In downtown proper - some good bars are flying saucer, bardog, the brass door and the peabody lobby bar.

You can take the 5 minute trolley to south main and hit up some places like earnestine and hazel's (mostly late night, though), green beetle, and spindini.

I'm just going to name a bunch and you can decide what you're looking for.

Blind Bear (replaced Bar None on South Main mall) - it's a speakeasy. Like them on FB to get the password to avoid cover. It's laid back.

Silly Goose (used to be where we went before they opened Blind Bear, they are kind of similar).

Flying Saucer - waitresses wear short skirts. Best beer selection. Live bands most weekends.

Tap Room - this is on Beale, but it's a little hole in the wall. If you're there on a Thursday night, check out the blues band that plays there starting at 10 p.m.

Earnestine & Hazel's is definitely a late night place. Supposedly haunted. Also used to be a brothel.

Raiford's - if you get really shitfaced by midnight and want to dance at a disco with light up floors (and pay $15 to get in) go here.

You had me at light up floors.

Is the Downtown area the only good spot for socializing in Memphis or are other areas worth checking out too?

Overton Square in Midtown has gotten better. Bar called Local is pretty good, and a place opened up across the street I haven't been to but looks nice. There's also just about any kind of food you would want within walking distance. Molly's La Casita (half & half margarita is good), Blue Monkey bar, Memphis Pizza Cafe, Bosco's (they make their own beer), new place called Ochiwalla's and there's a Yolo.

I'm hearing good things about Bar Louie in Overton Square. The biggest drawback is that you have to drive there and drive home, whereas if you're staying downtown you can easily walk to any of the places listed.

Cooper Young is walkable IN Cooper Young, but it's another place you need to drive to. If you walk too far in the wrong direction you'll die.

ETA: CadesCove where are you now?

Germantown, but the Commissary is about as good as it gets for bbq IMO. I dont think I need to read the thread to know it has been mentioned a bunch.

Gus's Fried Chicken was really awesome too. Very close to downtown, but both are worth going out of your way for if you ask me.

Gus's is one of my Top 5 restaurants of any type, anywhere. I truly believe that yes, it is that good.
