Beers from Memphis Made Brewing Co. can now be purchased all across the state of Tennessee, from Memphis to the North Carolina state line.
Memphis Made announced new distribution agreements today that make its beers available in bars, restaurants, and stores in many new Tennessee cities, including Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga.
“We’re really looking forward to having our beers across the state. It’s the next step in our growth that has been a long time coming,” said Andy Ashby, Memphis Made’s co-founder and sales manager.
Memphis Made is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and recently expanded its brewing operations, adding a second, larger production brewery in Downtown’s Edge neighborhood.
Memphis Made beer has been available in West Tennessee and North Mississippi. The brewery has now signed distribution agreements with Lipman Brothers in Nashville and Ajax Distributing Co. in Clarksville that will send Cat Nap, Fireside, and GonerBrau kegs and cans across the state.
With its Tennessee expansion, Memphis Made beers can be bought in 14 new Kroger stores in Nashville, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Spring Hill, Maryville, Brentwood, Columbia, Oak Ridge, Powell, Hermitage, and Lebanon, as well as Whole Foods in Chattanooga. Memphis Made beer is also on tap at Three Casks in the Nashville airport, among other locations.
To celebrate the Tennessee expansion, Memphis Made is having a beer tasting on Friday, Sept. 8, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., at Frugal MacDoogal in Nashville. The brewery will also be at the Nashville Brew Fest on Friday, Sept. 29.
