You want beer Memphis? You got it. There is plenty of beer to drink and Memphis is getting more beer shortly.
First up; Crosstown is getting a brewery. Crosstown Brewing Company is headed our way in the near future. Brewing, bottling and most importantly a tap room will be situated on the west side of the complex. Patio weather and beer. I can’t wait. Read more about the project from the Memphis Daily News here.
Need help beating the heat? The Memphis Flyer has some BEER suggestions for you. Checking in at Hammer and Ale in Cooper Young, the reporter talked with the local owner about… beer. Grapefruit Shandy by Traveler Beer Company (DRINK THIS!), Ghost River Crystal Method (missed that one! Doh!) and Einstok White Ale (a favorite) were discussed. These are a few of my favorite things. Bonus points; try the Einstok Berry. Light and nice, doesn’t taste artificial. Easy drinker for sure. YOU can read the article here from the Memphis Flyer.
Music. Memphis has you covered. I almost choked when I read in the Flyer about upcoming shows at Minglewood Hall. The Cult will make a triumphant return to Memphis September 30th. GO SEE THIS SHOW!
The Cult show a few years ago blew the roof off the joint. GO SEE THIS SHOW! My guess? A sell out. Don’t wait to get tickets. Go!
Wait. More music? How about something from the 80’s? Ratt will be in town October 15th in WEST Memphis at Southland Park. Go! We checked out Dokken a few years back at the same venue. The parking lot was jammed packed for the show. Get your tickets here. The band Ratt is “back for more”. If you have forgotten what Ratt sounds like; check out this video. Ah… the 80’s.
Need a bike? Just for a quick trip? Memphis Bike Share is coming for you. The Memphis Flyer reports on how the bike share works and what Memphis should expect.
I have used the bike share program in San Antonio and Nashville. In both instances it was easy to rent and get around town by bicycle. Good stuff for Memphis as well.
Need a car? How about his one?
It’s Futuramic! (Parked in front of Bosco’s last weekend)
And finally; heaven. If you have yet to go by La Michoacana on Summer Ave, YOU ARE MISSING OUT!
The newer place is now HUGE! I always pick up the Chamoyada.
Melon popsicle with chamoy sauce added. (Spicy and sweet sauce.) Perfect!
Stay cool Memphis with some cold beer, Mexican ice cream and cool music. Cheers!
