The Bartosch brothers and their team are at it again. Wiseacre is building a new brewery and taproom in downtown Memphis.

The new brewery in South Main will be much bigger, to keep up with the growing demand for their delicious beer. Kellan and Devin Bartosch report that they reached capacity a few years ago, but were looking for the right spot to expand. Wiseacre is currently the largest producer of craft beer in the state of Tennessee.

They’re saying that construction should begin in “winter 2018” which is, you know…within the next month. The brewery will be built on vacant land just east of Central BBQ – this treeless spot right in the middle of the map below.

Their East Memphis location will remain open, perhaps with some exciting and “creative” changes.

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.
