Ghost River Brewing Company, Memphis’ first craft brewery, and Beale Street Management are excited to announce Ghost River’s second location at 341-345 Beale Street in historic Downtown Memphis, with a grand opening scheduled for July 2021. Beyond great local brews, the Beale Street location will feature cuisine from Chef Sobie Johnson of Flying Sobie’s Gourmet Kitchen, a taproom, an outdoor beer garden, and live music.
Ghost River is independently owned and operated and has been making good beer for the good people of Memphis since 2007. This is the brewery’s first expansion.
“We are excited for the opportunity to expand our historic Brewery, Tap Room, and Beer Garden to world-famous Beale Street,” said Bob Keskey, owner of Ghost River Brewing Company. “We think it will be a great partnership – giving Memphians and tourists easier access to our assortment of hand-crafted beers – and we couldn’t be happier to help add to the vibrancy of Beale.”
Ghost River’s commitment to providing a place where everyone can enjoy some distinctive southern hospitality with their hops will be a welcome addition to Beale Street. And, if beer wasn’t enough, the brewery will also provide another dining option on the street with a unique partnership with Flying Sobie’s Gourmet Kitchen. Ghost River first became aware of Chef Sobie because of his strong following within the food truck community, and the partnership idea took off during the past year. With Ghost River covering the kitchen buildout, and equipment, Chef Sobie will bring his signature ground chicken burgers to his first “brick and mortar” location.
Beale Street Management fully supports the partnership.
“We are really looking forward to what the Ghost River/Flying Sobie’s team is going to bring to the street,” said Jon Shivers, manager of Beale Street. “Their timing couldn’t be better – Grizzlies are in the playoffs, we are gearing up for summer concerts, great weather9, 01FC and Redbirds games are ramping up. This is perfect beer and burger season.”
It seems Ghost River has equally positive feelings about Beale.
“It is important to Ghost River and our team to continue our support of all existing establishments on Beale, from the west side of Beale to the east side,” said Keskey when asked about the new location. “I want to thank the City of Memphis and Beale Street Management for their support and vision to bring this to fruition. There isn’t a better Memphis location than Beale; we are honored to be a part of the street.”
