Yazoo Brewery

July 13 | 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Yazoo Brewing Company’s story is well founded, starting with owner Linus Hall’s passion for homebrewer to formulating Nashville’s first craft beer brewery since Prohibition. For the record, the name Yazoo Brewing is in homage to Linus and Lila Hall’s hometown of Vicksburg, Mississippi and the stately Yazoo River that transverses the city. Linus and Lila held corporate positions and eventually decided that brewing beer was simply more exciting than climbing the corporate ladder.

The couple moved to Nashville to realize their dreams of entering the craft beer arena. Linus Hall earned an MBA from Vanderbilt University and also a craft brewing degree form the American Brewers Guild in California. He then interned with New York’s Brooklyn Brewery before returning to Nashville to begin his entrance into craft brewing as a means of existence.

Yazoo Brewing Company saw the first light of day on October 3, 2003 in the historic Marathon Motor Works building, In the ensuing years, Yazoo Brewing has become the iconic brewing model for the State of Tennessee and many of the region’s surrounding areas.
