Ghost River was the first brewery to start selling local beer – at least, in this wave of microbreweries over the last five years – and in November of 2016, their taproom finally opened.

I got a quick sneak peek before the new space, which is at Main Street and Crump, opened. Here’s what I saw. I have lots of info about visiting the taproom if you keep reading.






I tried some citrus-y beer that they had on tap and it was excellent.

Ghost River Taproom opened to the public on Saturday, November 5, 2016. There is some street parking, but not a ton, so carpooling or Lyft/Uber is helpful.

Ghost River Taproom Hours and Schedule

Wednesday and Thursday: 4 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.
Friday and Saturday: noon to 11 p.m.
Sunday: noon to 9 p.m.

Ghost River has a food truck pretty much every night that they’re open and a series of weekly events, which they keep updated on their website.

I’d especially recommend free trivia on Wednesdays, “Shop Small Saturdays” featuring a different local vendor each week, and brunch on Sunday with Flying Sobie’s hen ‘n’ waffles food truck.

Ghost River Brewing Tours

Ghost River started hosting weekly brewery tours in June 2017. Now, the public can get all the inside info on how this magical Memphis beer is made.

Tours are 11 a.m. on Saturdays with a limit of 20 people, so be sure to RSVP to Emma at It’s $20 per person, which includes an hour-ish long tour, four 4 ounce pours, a free pint of your favorite beer. Tip is included.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
