Re: “Is Meddlesome's 201 Hoplar in Bad Taste?

See, CL Mullins, that's the other thing I don't get about our lovely Memphis jail...why does it have to be be in the middle of DT Memphis? The SF jail is in that janky part by all the interstate overpasses that's not very walkable anyway. Who puts a jail in the middle of a stinkin' tourist area?-by that, I mean DT Memphis proper. Though I wouldn't know where to put it the way DT has developed. The overpassy area in DT Memphis is too close to St. Jude. Maybe over there on Pres Island?

Julie,
I was there about for 40 years, but that referencing came from folks who may not have looked forward to the visit. I also heard it used thus by the media. Sometimes simply saying Bryant St evoked that particular destination. And of course, as you know, court might also be held there.
We'd also take Bryant St as an easier access to the Bay Bridge from the Mission.

I attended a cooking retreat at Magnolia Grove back in March. We learned many delicious recipes.

@CL Mullins, I have never heard the San Francisco jail called 850 Bryant. Not saying you're wrong-but I lived in SF for quite a while, even worked at a law office once-never heard it referred to as 850 Bryant.

Hey BP45, haven't you heard? Herpes sores are badges of honor today, very hip.

This place is in Cordova. That's about as hip as a herpes sore. So call it hop-sy daisy, for all I care.
Can't we speed up the deannexation please.

Julie,
In San Francisco it was called 850 Bryant. I imagine among people who have to frequently give directions, addresses often take the place of names.

We're just lucky cause our jail comes with a cool sounding address. If it were are 500 Madison, we'd probably just call it "the jail".
201 Poplar just has a cool ring to it.

Re: “Is Meddlesome's 201 Hoplar in Bad Taste?

What's bad about it that this is the only city I am aware that the jail is known by address. For a city with an image problem-it doesn't feel good or right. Maybe after a few beers...

Wow. Yet another too-hoppy IPA that hopes to market itself by creating local controversy. Yawn.

I know I've crossed over into "old man" territory by my reaction to this tweet. To be offended by a beer name referencing a local address associated with balancing the scales of justice is the definition of an internet troll. It's amazing what "offends" people these days. Suck it up buttercup or the world will squash you like a bug.

Just because you're offended doesn't mean you are right...

I find a $10 glass of beer a lot more offensive than the name 201 Hoplar.
But I love Jailhouse Bock. Sounds like something you'd make in a toilet with no lid.

I think of 201 Poplar as a place to avoid, so I will also think of Meddlesome Brewing Co as a place to avoid.
