Independently owned and operated, Ghost River Brewing has made good beer for the good people of Memphis since 2007. Our ales are as much at home in a bar as they are on a riverbank. At a tailgate or around a campfire. Front porch or back nine. In short, our beers are made to wander.

598 Monroe Ave, Memphis, TN 38103

When we founded High Cotton Brewing Company, we didn’t want to just create beer whose name paid homage to our Southern Heritage, but brew it in a way that did as well. We knew that bumper crops didn’t just happen. That they were equal parts inspiration, perspiration and a little bit of luck. It’s a process that’s worked well for generations, and one that we bring to everything we do. Whether it be the meticulous selection of ingredients, the painstaking process of trial and error, or ruthlessly critiquing the fruits of our labor, the result is a collection of beers that we’re proud to brew, proud to drink and most of all, proud to share.

768 Cooper St, Memphis, TN 38104

Memphis Made Brewing Co. is a small independent production brewery located in the vibrant neighborhood of Cooper-Young. In Memphis, Tenn...duh. We produce three year-round beers and also do plenty of seasonal and limited run brews.We're dedicated to raising the bar for good beer in Memphis, both for those who live here and for those who are visiting our fair city. This early stage of the website will be very simple. No fun flash animation zipping across the screen or grains of barley morphing into a fresh looking pint of altbier (but that would be cool). We're busy brewing to provide Memphis with more fresh, local beer. So bear with us and our simplicity.
