Yahooo! It's Yazoo Beer For Memphis.

Posted By on Tue, Mar 20, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Yazoo Brewing has begun shipping its popular beers into the Memphis area. Yazoo was started three years ago, by the husband-and-wife team of Linus and Lila Hall, in an old automobile factory in north Nashville. Since then, Yazoo beers have become one of the top-selling craft brands in middle Tennessee.

A craft brewery named Yazoo, located in Nashville? “We grew up in Mississippi in Vicksburg, and got married overlooking the Yazoo River. We ended up in Nashville, both working for different jobs”, says Linus. “But we always had a dream of opening our own brewery and taking my home-brewed recipes to another level, so we quit our jobs, bought some used equipment, and renovated a space in the old Marathon Motorworks building."

Yazoo beers were voted “Best Local Brew” two years running by The Nashville Scene.

Yazoo is being distributed by Southwestern Beverages in Memphis. The two brands currently available are Yazoo Pale Ale, a citrusy American-style pale ale, and Dos Perros, a chocolaty Mexican-styled amber.

Yazoo beer is already on tap at many great local watering holes, including both Flying Saucers, Young Avenue Deli, B.B. Kings, Café 61, King Biscuit Café, and the Fox and Hound. Six-packs are available at most specialty beer markets.
