Ghost River Brewing has started bottling Riverbank Red, the Memphis brewery’s Irish-Style Red Ale.
Riverbank Red joins Golden Ale as Ghost River’s two year-round beers in bottles.
Riverbank Red was formerly called Copperhead Red and was the winner of the 2011 Great American Beer Festival silver medal in the Irish-Style Red Ale category — Ghost River’s first and only medal to date. The beer was originally brewed for the Memphis Redbirds.
The 1887 IPA is Ghost River’s third year-round beer, but it’s only available on draft. Ghost River has been bottling Golden Ale since 2011, when a bottling line was added as part of an expansion.
While it may be a few more weeks until Riverbank Red is widely distributed, the Midtown Cash Saver tweeted Friday that the beer was available at the store’s Madison Growler & Bottle Shop.
