What timing!

So when the Tennessean's story on us bringing Gerst back to being brewed in Nashville hit:


I got an email from my friend Scott Mertie, who was the author of "Nashville Brewing",

Scott has taken it upon himself to get a historical marker made commemorating the exact spot where the old William Gerst Brewing Company was located. Stay tuned - I smell another party coming up when the marker is unveiled!

To learn more history of the Gerst Brewery, check out, or pick of a copy of Nashville Brewing (Arcadia Publishing, 2006). Nashville Brewing is a pictorial history of brewing in the Music City from the Civil War to Mondern breweries like Yazoo. The William Gerst Brewing Co. operated from 1890 - 1954. Great to year that Yazoo and the Gerst Haus are bringing it back!
