Say goodbye to Summer with a special deal

All this weekend, we'll be having a special on our Summer ale - buy a pint of Summer Ale and a Summer Ale t-shirt for just $10. Fall is coming, no matter what the thermometer says! We brewed our Fall Ale yesterday, which coincidentally was the first day of Fall on the calendar. It will be ready in time for the Germantown Octoberfest on Saturday, Oct 9th, where Yazoo will be a beer sponsor for the first time ever.

So come on down, and help us blow out the longest, wettest, driest, and hottest Summer ever! A pint of Summer and a cool Summer Ale t-shirt, all for only $10.

SUE wins Sliver at the GABF!

"SUE" took home a Silver medal this weekend at the Great American Beer Festival, coming in second only to the venerable Alaskan Smoked Porter. Great company to be included in, and thanks to everyone who called and emailed to congratulate us!

Congrats to all the other Southern breweries who took home medals - Blackstone, Back Forty, Foothills, Terrapin, Cigar City, Saint Arnolds, and many more. That's proof that a true craft beer culture has taken hold down South - sure, craft beer drinkers here getting more options from breweries around the country, but the brewery just down the street from you is making some kick-ass beers too!

Get yer cold Yazoo beer rat 'cheer

You might think that it's not all that unusual to get a Yazoo beer at the Titans stadium. Not so. This is the first real shot we have gotten at selling our beer at Titans games. We did have two (2) taps on the club level several years ago, that did pretty well, but for the past few years the only local beer you could get was our beer, in bottles, at one place on the concourse.

Well, this year we worked out a deal with the concession company that runs the food and beverages at the stadium. We bought four roll-around concession carts with beer taps on them, and are now pouring our beer at four locations along the ground-level concourse. Look for the big Yazoo stainless carts, or ask someone with a white Yazoo cup where he got the beer. It's ONLY $9 for a 22 oz beer - yeah, a little high, but compare that to $8 for the same amount of Bud or Miller Lite, and it all of sudden looks like a tremendous deal!

As always, we really appreciate your support. If you are getting a beer at the stadium, please seek us out!

Another busy festival weekend!

Wish us luck! Ivan and I are heading out to Denver for the Great American Beer Festival this weekend. This is the big daddy of them all - 450 breweries and 2200 beers, competing for the right to be called the best in the land. The quality of beer at the festival has gotten so good, that I feel kind of sorry for the judges who have to pick the winners in each category. I have a good feeling about our Hefeweizen, Hop Project, and Sue this year - but hey, even if we don't win anything, we will have a great time hanging out with our brewer friends and visiting the dozens of breweries around Denver.

Meanwhile, Neil will be making the trek eastward to Asheville for their Brewgrass Festival. Tickets are sold out again for the millionth year in a row, but for those of you lucky enough to be going, you know you are in for a great time. Unlike some festivals, the Brewgrass Festival is staffed by the brewers themselves, pouring you the beer and telling you all about it. The music is usually amazing too.

bottling in action...

We get a lot of comments during tours about bottling, "I bet that is interesting to watch, why don't you ever give tours when it is running?" Well, here's the next best thing to being there:
