At 495 Tennessee Street, in what is known as the newly revitalized South Main in downtown Memphis, sits a 19th century Romanesque factory building. Dilapidated from the outside, inside holds a secret treasure. This diamond in the rough, has revitalized itself into one of the most exciting and unique beer gardens. In this factory building known as the Tennessee Brewery, at one point brewed up to 250,000 barrels of Goldcrest 51 beer at the turn of the 20th century
From Thursday through Sunday now till June 1st, this building transforms into an exciting and vibrant pop-up beer garden,
highlighting local brews, food trucks, music, and much more. Using the building’s courtyard and 2 rooms on the first floor, 4 developers had this idea to help try to save this unbelievable building.
So what are you doing this coming weekend? Come to Tennessee Brewery Untapped to support this event and experience this building that could possibly be demolished in July. Everyone is welcome, even kids, to stop by have a bite to eat, enjoy a beer or nonalcoholic beverages, run around, listen to live music, or just hang out with good company.
That’s not the only thing to do down on South Main though: see the newly renovated Civil Rights Museum, eat at the Arcade, check out the unique arts studios, enjoy Memphis in May festivities, go to the Farmers Market, take a scenic tour on the trolley, or go shopping at one-of-a-kind boutiues.
