Ghost River Taproom Opens This Saturday: Here’s A Sneak Peek

Posted by Holly Whitfield | November 3rd 2016 9935 0

Ghost River was the first brewery to start selling local beer – at least, in this wave of microbreweries over the last 5 years – and now it’s finally time for their taproom downtown to open.

I got a quick sneak peek this week at the new space, which is at Main Street and Crump. Here’s what I saw.






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

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

Ghost River Taproom Hours as of Right Now:

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

They aim to have a food truck there nightly and live music of some kind each Saturday. They do have a couple of TVs inside and will put on important games for Memphis teams. Ghost River won’t have brewery tours available until next year.

Opening day for Ghost River (Nov. 5) is also Memphis Made Brewing’s “Malted” event with limited fall beer releases. High Cotton will host an Election Watch Party to benefit Alzheimer’s Association on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Wiseacre hosts “Symphonic Fermentation Fair” with a six-beer pairing dinner. My point: it’s a great time to be a beer lover in Memphis.

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.
