Yazoo Brewing Company is a regional brewery in Nashville, Tennessee, United States. It was founded in 2003 by Brewmaster Linus Hall, and has since expanded operations and won numerous awards.

History[edit]

The brewery was located in what was once the Marathon Motor Works factory building in downtown Nashville, but moved to The Gulch in March, 2010. The new brewery featured an expanded taproom with 18 taps and a patio for outdoor seating with a forty barrel brewing system.[1]

Linus Hall and his wife Lila are both from Mississippi, and moved to Nashville in 1996. Linus had been home brewing since his college days but after years of perfecting his signature ale styles, testing them out on family and friends, he decided to open his own brewery. Hall earned his MBA from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, received a craftbrewing degree from the American Brewers Guild in California and completed an internship at the Brooklyn Brewery in Brooklyn, New York in 2001 under brewmaster Garrett Oliver. He quit a successful engineering job and with a new baby on the way, secured a location, scoured the country for brewing equipment and almost single-handedly built the brewery.[1]

Awards[edit]

Etymology[edit]
