Yazoo Brewing Lists 0.86-acre Gulch Property
Yazoo plans to sell property it has owned since 2010 to secure long-term home with additional space; its Gulch site, ripe for redevelopment and strategically located in booming Division St. corridor, is listed by Urban Grout Commercial Real Estate, a firm specializing in Nashville’s urban core.
Yazoo Brewing Company, a southern original since 2003 and one of Nashville’s oldest and best-known breweries, today announced it is listing its 910 Division St. property in the Gulch for sale as it finalizes plans for a long-term home that provides it more space. Yazoo’s current location will be listed and marketed by Nashville-based Urban Grout Commercial Real Estate.
“This is exciting news for us and for fans of Yazoo beer,” said Linus Hall, Yazoo’s founder and brewmaster. “Yazoo is preparing for a long-term future with more room to brew, create, experiment and host our friends. The time is right to find a location for us that is a permanent fit for our operations and aspirations.”
Yazoo’s well known and highly visible Gulch campus is .86 acres at the corner of Division and Overton Streets between 8th and 12th Avenues South, offering immediate access to SoBro, downtown, I-65, 12South, 8South and more. With the nearly completed Division St. extension, the site is located on what is becoming a critical thoroughfare for Midtown, the Gulch and the urban core.
About Yazoo Brewing Company
In October 2003, Yazoo Brewing opened the doors and began selling kegs of Yazoo Pale Ale, Dos Perros, Spring Wheat, and Onward Stout to local bars and restaurants, quickly gaining an enthusiastic local following. We replaced the Spring Wheat with our Hefeweizen after winning a Gold Medal for the Hefeweizen at the 2004 Great American Beer Festival and started bottling our beers in 2005. Other local favorites like our Sly Rye Porter and our Hop Project rounded out our line-up of beers. In 2009, we managed to brew Tennessee’s first ever legal high-gravity ale, Yazoo Sue, after managing to get a distillery license. After six years, we had outgrown our original brewery, and in 2010 decided to purchase a building for a new brewery in the Gulch, at 910 Division Street. Yazoo beer can now be found in most of Tennessee & Mississippi. We are also the proud brewers of Gerst beer, reviving a brand that was once a Nashville legend before Prohibition, and our Embrace the Funk line of sour and wild ales.
We’re excited to be riding the wave of good beer that is sweeping across the Southeast! Cheers!
