    Per their facebook page

    "Excited to announce what we've been waiting on for 10 years! We'll have a ribbon cutting tomorrow morning and officially open for business at our taproom this Friday from 4-8 and Saturday from 1-8."


    I'm really excited about these guys getting opened up , of the three new breweries in Memphis these guys are going to really bring the goods I believe

    I didn't know if they were doing growler sales or not. I've looked on their FB page for a while and never saw if they were.

    Yeah I hear they are really into barrel aged brews so we should be seeing some good stuff coming from them down the road. It will be nice to have a really good brewery one hour from home

    I'd love to meet with some of you fellow Memphis BAs sometimes. Unfortunately I'm out of town this weekend.

    Really been looking forward to this brewery's opening. I have high hopes for them.

    I've been a couple of times. Best brewery in Memphis, you can tell these guys have great brewing talent, I'd be interested to see what they can do without TN ABV restrictions.

    Yeah, curious about this. What does a TN brewery have to do — or what kind of license must it obtain — to brew beers above 6.2 percent?

    I've had Wiseacre's Ananda both on draft and canned and have enjoyed it. A very nice beer. It does make me wonder what they can do without ABV restrictions. I saw on their FB page they've acquired barrels ... looking forward to see what they concoct.

    A brewery must obtain a distiller's license which must be difficult to do or extraordinarily expensive, given that only 2 (that I know of) have done so.

    I saw the price was only 1000 bucks when they had get the distillers license but I was under the impression that the old laws had changed

    Wiseacre has produced some great beers so far. Highly recommend everyone to try their two flagship beers - Tiny Bomb and Ananda.

    I've heard that the distillers license is in progress. Just a pain in the ass to get through the process. Looking forward to the barrel aged beer!
