MEMPHIS MADE BREWS UP SULLY FOR TJ MULLIGAN’S

Despite the snow, two local businesses are working together to make March a great beer month.

Memphis Made Brewing Co. is brewing a limited edition red ale, named Sully, for the TJ Mulligan’s family of pubs.

Sully, named after Memphis Made co-owner and Midtown businessman Richard Sullivan, will debut at six local pubs on Friday, March 6.

These pubs include Last Burger on Earth (LBOE) in Midtown, TJ Mulligan’s on Highway 64, TJ Mulligan’s at Trinity Commons, TJ Mulligan’s at Kirby and Poplar, Dan McGuinness in East Memphis and TJ’s Pub at Quince and Kirby.

“It’s been fun working with Memphis Made to develop a beer heading into Saint Patrick’s Day,” Lee Adams, owner of the TJ Mulligan’s family of pubs, said. “More and more people are drinking fresh local beer and this is another step we’re taking to make sure our customers are happy.”

Sully is a well-balanced red ale made for good session with friends.

Head brewer and Memphis Made co-owner Drew Barton developed Sully with input from Adams.

“We were looking for an accessible beer which the gamut of TJ Mulligan’s customers could enjoy,” Andy Ashby, co-founder of Memphis Made, said. “I think we got it.”

The beer goes with Memphis Made’s focus on working with local businesses, from bars to t-shirt shops.

“I’ve been drinking at TJ Mulligan’s pubs since college and to brew a beer for them is pretty surreal,” Ashby said. “It’s been fun.”

Memphis Made Brewing Co. is a production brewery located at 768 S. Cooper St. in Midtown’s historic Cooper-Young neighborhood. It currently self-distributes kegs and bottled beer to nearly 100 bars, restaurants, grocery stores and liquor stores throughout Shelby County. The public can visit the tap room, open every Friday from 4 to 9 p.m.
