Memphis Made Releasing High-Gravity Beer, Opening Mondays and Thursdays

Memphis Made Releasing High-Gravity Beer, Opening Mondays and Thursdays


Memphis Made Brewing Co. will soon have bigger beers and longer hours at its Cooper-Young tap room.


This past Friday, the brewery  released Slumber Party, an Imperial Stout clocking in at 9 percent alcohol by volume. This beer will be served in the tap room initially with a limited amount of kegs being released this week.


A Tennessee law went into effect Jan. 1, raising the level of high-gravity beer in the state from 6.2 percent to 10.1 percent.



This opened up new styles of beer for local breweries  to start brewing for beer lovers in Tennessee. Slumber Party will be the first of several higher-gravity beers Memphis Made will release throughout the year. Most of these beers will be sold in the tap room, with a handful being released to select retailers.


“The old alcohol levels limited what we could brew, but now we’re looking forward to a bunch of new styles, like Double IPAs and Imperial Stouts, which you can’t do below 6.2 percent,” Andy Ashby, co-owner of Memphis Made, said.


In February, local beer drinkers will have more chances to visit the brewery, as it will start to open up its back bar Mondays 4-10 p.m. and Thursdays 1-10 p.m.


The tap room is currently open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. “Mondays and Thursdays will have a more intimate setting, with only the back bar open for service,” Ashby said.


Memphis Made Brewing Co. is a production brewery and tap room located at 768 S. Cooper St. in Midtown’s historic Cooper-Young neighborhood. It currently self-distributes kegs to more than 140 bars, restaurants, grocery stores and liquor stores throughout Shelby County. For more information, go to


Terrapin and The Walking Dead to release Lucille Blackstrap Molasses Stout

Terrapin and The Walking Dead to release Lucille Blackstrap Molasses Stout



When Terrapin Beer Co and Skybound collaborated to re-release The Walking Dead Blood Orange IPA in 6-pack cans this year, one beer wasn’t enough to satisfy. Raising the stakes they have added a second more limited edition brew to the project.

Inspired by Negan and Lucille, his weapon of choice, Terrapin Beer Co and Skybound’s super limited release is sure to be a hit. Lucille, a Blackstrap Molasses Stout will be released in 500 ml bottles with a label that does the barbed wire wrapped bat justice.


You don’t have to live in The Sanctuary to get a hold of Terrapin Beer Co and Skybound’s second collaboration beer, but this one won’t stick around long. The limited release will be available in late February.

Founded in 2010, Skybound Entertainment is a multiplatform entertainment company that houses projects ranging from television, film, digital content, comics, interactive, live events, and gaming.
Skybound Entertainment is responsible for such television hits including The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead and Outcast. Moving into the digital content space, Skybound has also produced the first-ever narrative VR series, GONE, for Samsung’s Milk VR platform and the YouTube Red original series, Scare PewDiePie, which is currently in production in its second season.

Newly announced Skybound projects include Five Year, Mastermind and Heroes and Villains: The History of Comics.

Terrapin Beer Co. began as a daydream between founders John and Spike, who brewed and released their first beer, Rye Pale Ale, in 2002. Six months after it’s release, the beer made it to Denver for GABF, where John and Spike took home a Gold Medal for Rye Pale Ale in the American Pale Ale Category.

Inspired by the creative culture of Athens, Terrapin began to add to its beer lineup, with unique beers like W-n-B, Hopsecutioner, and many others.

Catawba Brewing Releases Passport Beer #3: Small Batch Blonde Ale

Catawba Brewing Releases Passport Beer #3: Small Batch Blonde Ale



THURSDAY, JAN 19 – In recent weeks, Catawba’s Small Batch Program has explored dark malty styles and higher-gravity offerings designed to sustain you through the cold of winter. With their latest release, they’re taking the contrarian approach, swinging back to the lighter end of the beer spectrum. This American Blonde Ale is an interesting dichotomy. A traditional summer beer brewed in January. A new release that’s actually an old recipe. Think of it as a Throwback Thursday Beer.

The WNC craft beer landscape looked entirely different in the summer of 1999 when Catawba Brewing first opened its doors in Glen Alpine, NC. Brothers Billy and Scott Pyatt had spent the preceding years perfecting recipes through countless homebrew batches, preparing for the release of their first commercial beer (known then as Buffalo Nickel Ale). An ideal gateway beer, its yellow color made it seem approachable even to those who knew only macro American lagers. Although it would never be considered hoppy by today’s standards, many people at the time commented on an explosion of unfamiliar flavors – yet it remained light, crisp, refreshing, drinkable.

Brewed for the first time in their Asheville South Slope Brewery, Small Batch Blonde Ale is the third 2017 release in Catawba’s Passport Rewards Program. Experience this piece of Catawba history in any of their tasting rooms, and in limited distribution.
