When it’s a hot Saturday in June, what better way to spend it than taking a brewery tour at Yazoo Brewery and enjoying different libations that the house has to offer?
Yazoo’s owner Linus Hall opened the doors of Yazoo in October 2003. What was once a young UVA student’s passion for brewing that sprung from a Home-brewing kit purchased from the back of a 1993 Rolling Stones Magazine was now a business.
I love Yazoo. The first time I tried a Dos
I was hooked. I will choose Yazoo over pretty much any other beer when I’m in TN. Keepin’ it local, ya know. But Dos Perros isn’t all they have. Varietals include, but aren’t limited to: Yazoo Pale Ale, Spring Wheat, Hefeweizen, Sly Rye Porter, Hop Projects, Gerst and the Tennessee’s first ever legal high-gravity al, Yazoo Sue. Aptly named after the famous Johnny Cash, it’s dark and strong, just like ‘The Man in Black’.
The first space Yazoo occupied was in Marathon Music works, but they soon outgrew the small space and now take up residence in the Gulch, 910 Division Street to be exact. The brew tours have grown from a one room, one stop tour to a 45 minute multi-stop tour, and it’s great.
Yazoo doesn’t serve entrees, only light app fare and pretzels. However, there is usually a food truck parked at the front door on Friday and Saturday. So, stop by today – you won’t be disappointed!
