I stopped in at Ghost River Brewing Company in Memphis, Tennessee. Let me just say this up front. I have failed – failed to record specific beer names that is. The toasted marshmallow stout (made with peeps?) Oh My Goodness. This beer is so delicious who needs dessert. And then, on top of that the P. S. I Love You Imperial Brown on Palo Santo Wood. Let’s talk. I’ve enjoyed the Dogfish beer made in Palo Santo barrels. It’s darker and richer and stronger. This beer is sweeter and coconutty – is that a word? Well, it’s also delicious. I enjoyed the other beers but these stood out to me.
I stopped in at High Cotton Brewing Company in Memphis, Tennessee and enjoyed the Scottish Ale. This beer was malty but not too sweet, nor was it too bitter, it was just right! The bartender was really helpful and we chatted quite a bit about the beer scene in Memphis and High Cotton’s beers. I went on to try several others which were also very good, Doppelbock, Mexican Lager, and Czar IPA.
I stopped in at Wiseacre Brewing Company in Memphis, Tennessee. Admiral Benbow Extra Special Strong Bitter was my favorite beer i enjoyed there. Philbert Baltic Porter with Hazelnuts and Gotta Get Up To Get Down Sweet Milk Stout were also delicious. The tap room is very cool inside and outside. Also loved the great swag; picked up a pair of cool brewery socks.
I stopped in at Crosstown Brewing Company in Memphis, Tennessee. Unfortunately, I got there right after the bar had closed. Fortunately, the bartender was able to sell me a four-pack of Tator Doppelbock Lager. Unfortunately, while I was enjoying one in the picnic area the brewery staff informed me that I could not consume take-away beer on premises. Fortunately, I was able to bring the remaining cans to my hotel for later consumption – like now.
I stopped in at Meddlesome Brewing Company in Cordova, Tennessee (near Memphis). I decided to go with the Dirty Dova New England Style Double IPA. This was the bartender’s recommendation. Solid. Strong beer. Great hop taste and aroma. Delightful to drink. Glad I stopped in.
