Historic Goldcrest 51 label

Goldcrest 51, the flagship beer of the historic Tennessee Brewing Company, is coming back to Memphis.

The new Goldcrest Brewing Company has resurrected the original Goldcrest 51 recipe and will release the beer this spring to bars and restaurants in the Memphis area, according to the company’s website.

Goldcrest, a golden lager, was brewed by the Tennessee Brewing Company in Memphis until its closing in 1955. It was the best known and leading beer sold in Memphis for decades.

Little Rock author Kenn Flemmons, who wrote the Finest Beer you ever Tasted about Goldcrest and the old Tennessee Brewery, is general manager of the Goldcrest Brewing Company.
