The Pigs were treated to some southern hospitality on their
recent trip to Memphis at High Cotton Brewery. The welcome mat was
rolled out for our arrival to this one of kind, spacious, warm,
countryesque brewery with some of the most delectable brews in
After a few brews to jumpstart the afternoon we sat down with Ryan, the owner and head brewer, and Cayleigh Tralongo, taproom manager and resident whiskey drinker.
Lots of intense, comedic discussions on the pro and cons of high gravity brews, Ryan's brewing history, a hate filled rant on Bud, and Dougie Fresh accidently outs Cowboy.
The brews flowed, highlighted by a couple of our High Cotton favorites, their luscious stout and ESB, as the conversation cruised throughout the afternoon with some shout outs to Bailey Spaulding of Jackalope Brewing Company, Eilise Lane Servies of Scarlet Lane Brewery, Memphis Made Brewing, and the Yazoo Brewing Company.
Tune in for the ride and be sure to get to High Cotton on your next trip to Memphis for some fantastic beer and fine southern hospitality.
(And a big thanks to Cayleigh and her bf for being the pigs guide to Memphis that eventful Friday night and for popping our cherries at Wild Bill's.)
