The Story of Yazoo Brewing Company Yazoo Brewing really started with a homebrewing kit bought from the back pages of Rolling Stone in 1993. I was a cash-poor college student living in an old farmhouse in Virginia, and brewing my own beer seemed a little less illegal than the pot-growing operation my other housemates were involved in. I was amazed that I could make something that actually tasted like beer at home! I kept on brewing, even when my wife Lila and I returned home to Mississippi after college, and then when we moved to Nashville in 1996. In October 2003, we opened the doors and began selling kegs of Yazoo Pale Ale, Dos Perros, Spring Wheat, and Onward Stout to local bars and restaurants, quickly gaining an enthusiastic local following. We replaced the Spring Wheat with our Hefeweizen after winning a Gold Medal for the hefeweizen at the 2004 Great American Beer Festival, and started bottling our beers in 2005. Other local favorites like our Sly Rye Porter and our Hop Project rounded out our line-up of beers. In 2009, we managed to brew Tennessee's first ever legal high-gravity ale, Yazoo Sue, after managing to get a distillery license. Our little brewery grew and grew, until we couldn't fit any more equipment in the building. After six years, we had outgrown our original brewery, and in 2010 decided to purchase a building for a new brewery in the Gulch, at 910 Division Street. With the addition of a new 40 barrel brewhouse, and lots of room for bigger tanks, we were able to continue to grow. Yazoo beer can now be found in most of Tennessee, Mississippi, and northern Alabama. We are the proud brewers of Gerst beer, reviving a brand that was once a Nashville legend before Prohibition, and also brew the 'Hap and Harry's' beers for our partners at R.S. Lipman, our first ever distributor here in Nashville. We're excited to be riding the wave of good beer that is sweeping across the Southeast! Cheers!
