Craft Beer in the Memphis area


Got a bunch of friends and family coming down here for the UT/MSU game. I'm putting in a request for some good beers in exchange for the room and board. Seems fair to me. Anyway, I haven't been up there in awhile. What's available and where is the best place to get it? Cordova area preferably. TIA

re: Craft Beer in the Memphis area


Are you talking about craft beers produced in the Memphis area (I'm including Mississippi)? The only ones I can think of are Ghost River and Yazoo. The Ghost River pale ale was excellent from what I remember, but I'm pretty sure they only sell them on draft. Yazoo is in bottles and pretty widely available, but I don't know shite about Cordova, only actual Memphis

Also, I used to pick up Dogfish head stuff from the local liquor store when I was in college. Flying Dog beers are also widely available and pretty good.

ETA: you CAN get Ghost River in bottles but I cant tell you where, sorry

I'm talking about distributed in Memphis. My dad lives in Cordova and I don't want to put him through too much trouble. He doesn't know shite about craft beer. Google says a place called Natalie's Liquor has a good selection, including Dogfish Head. I've yet to have it and it's been on my list for awhile. Will probably call them in a bit to see if they can confirm that they have it. Was hoping someone had some local knowledge. I haven't lived there in 7 years.

Thanks for your help. Dont Recall seeing Flying Dog or Ghost River discussed on here. You recommend?

I was a big fan of both, but keep in mind this was in college (all of 4 years ago) so my tastes may have changed since. Only had Ghost River on draft but it always found it excellent

Joe's Liquor on Poplar has a pretty good selection. Most of the beers are priced as singles, so you can get a good variety.
