Sellout crowd packs AutoZone Park for 2013 Memphis Brewfest

2013 Memphis Brewfest

A crowd of 2,000 beer lovers converged Saturday on AutoZone Park for the 4th Annual Memphis Brewfest, a celebration of American craft beers and international brews.

The 2013 festival, with more than 165 different beers sampled, was a big success. It rained, and the Grizzlies were playing the Clippers in Game 3 of the playoffs a few blocks away at FedExForum, and the festival still sold out on Saturday morning. Thankfully, there was covered space for all the booths in the concourse area of AutoZone Park, so everyone could stay dry.

There was beer from local and regional breweries, including Ghost River Brewing, Boscos, High Cotton Brewing, Yazoo Brewing Company and Blackstone Brewing Company. Two homebrew clubs were there: the Bluff City Brewers & Connoisseurs and Memphis Brewer’s Association. Craft and international beers were provided by distributors A.S. Barboro and Budweiser of Memphis, and for the first time, Joe’s Wines & Liquors even had a booth, pouring high-ABV selections from its Beer Nutz Beer Club.

The festival capped off the inaugural Memphis Beer Week, with beer tastings, beer dinners, firkin nights and pint nights all across town.

High Cotton at Memphis BrewfestMemphis’ High Cotton Brewing, which has just started brewing at its new facility on Monroe, had samples of its Saison and Scottish Ale at Memphis Brewfest.

Bluf City Brewers at Memphis BrewfestThe Bluff City Brewers & Connoisseurs served up some great homebrew, including the “High C’s” IPA, Extracurricular Hoptivity IPA, Rauch Me Like a Hurricane and Strange Fruit Watermelon Wheat, just to name a few.

Yazoo at Memphis BrewfestIn addition to its year-round beers, Nashville’s Yazoo Brewing Company had two special beers on tap — a barrel-aged version of its Sly Rye Porter, as well as the New Belgium sour collaboration “Rufus.”

Yazoo Big WheelYazoo also gave away this awesome custom big wheel to this lucky guy.

Tasters at Memphis BrewfestThe mission of Memphis Brewfest is to raise awareness of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. All net proceeds from the festival benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy and the Memphis Redbirds Foundation.
