Starting later this this month, Memphis Made Brewing Co.’s taproom will be open on Saturdays — one extra day per week to enjoy their beers right from the source.
The expanded taproom hours will be celebrated with a beer party, of course.
Hopped, a spring beer release party, will be held on Saturday, April 26, from noon to 6 p.m., in the brewery’s parking lot near the I Love Memphis mural. The all-ages event is free.
Memphis Made, which is located at 768 Cooper, opened its taproom to the public in November, but it’s only been open one day per week.
“People have been asking us to open the taproom on other days besides Friday for some time,” Andy Ashby, co-owner of Memphis Made, told FuzzyBrew. “We decided the best way to launch Saturdays was with a big party with a bunch of limited release beers, great music, bikes and food.”
In addition to an array of spring beers on tap, there will be music from Mighty Souls Brass Band and Goner Records. Food will be available from Fresh Gulf Shrimp food truck, Food Geek food truck and Aldo’s Pizza.
Bikesmith, the mobile bike shop, will also be parked at the brewery. Any attendees that ride their bike to the event will be entered in a raffle to win prizes such as a growler of Memphis Made Brewing beer each month for a year, as well as other prizes.
The first 100 customers will received a Hopped pint glass.
Along with Memphis Made’s regular line-up, a few of the new beers on tap will be:
- Waka Waka Too, an IPA brewed with lime peel
- Rockbone Wood, a barrel-aged IPA
- McFuggle, a Scottish IPA
- All Sewn Up, an English Pale Ale only available at the Lucero Family Picnic and Hopped
