Midsouth Chapter Event

Written by NAMA on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 , 10:29 am

Midsouth NAMA invites you to get a taste of the local craft beer scene at our May meeting. Wiseacre Brewing Company in Memphis will be hosting us for a facility tour, followed by a beer tasting and social hour.

Wiseacre became a Memphis staple when Kellan and Davin Bartosch opened the brewery and the area’s first taproom in 2013. The brewery quickly expanded its distribution throughout the Mid-South and began introducing more year-round and specialty beers in the unmistakable Wiseacre cans. Today, crowds gather at the taproom 6 days a week, and Wiseacre tours and beer pairing events are popular local attractions.

Check out Wiseacre on Facebook or visit their website!

Please join the chapter on Thursday, May 25 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. to learn more about this brewery, sip on some beer and enjoy the taproom.
