Ghost River Brewing’s 1887 IPA is back

Ghost River 1887 IPA

Memphis’ Ghost River Brewing has brought back its hoppiest special beer for a second run.

The 1887 IPA commemorates the first year that the Memphis Sands Aquifer was tapped. It’s Ghost River’s most adventurous brew when it comes to hops, loaded with a mix of Columbus, Centennial and Cascade.

The 1887 was brewed last year for the first time. It’s back and is available in growlers and kegs on the brewery dock at 827 S. Main. It will also be on tap at some area restaurants.

The IPA will be available through February or until it runs out. Get some while you can.

  1. Hooray! I thought they did a really nice job with this one, and I’m glad to see it return for an encore.

  2. Cool! Any idea where in town will have on draft? (assume Saucer at least)

  3. Thanks for the kind words about Ghost River’s 1887 IPA. This beer was not put on tap by many many and restaurants last year when we brewed it. Bar and restaurant owners tend to choose beers to put on tap that they think will have a wide appeal and view IPA’s as too assertive. Last year only five restaurants put the beer on draft when it was available.

    The only location that I can say with certainty that will put the 1887 on tap is the Bayou Bar & Grill. They are one of Ghost River’s leading accounts and are willing to try anything we brew. The beer is also available at the brewery in kegs and growlers.
