Brewery Untapped Will Make a Comeback



The spring beer garden that created so much buzz last year about the previously doomed Tennessee Brewery building is making a comeback in spring 2015. 

There are no details available yet. But the folks at Doug Carpenter & Associates posted this image on the Tennessee Brewery Facebook page this morning.


From late April to early June last year, a group of investors — restaurateur Taylor Berger, attorney Michael Tauer, commercial real estate executive Andy Cates, and communications specialist Doug Carpenter — organized a pop-up beer garden inside the brewery to raise awareness about the need to save the historic building on Tennessee Street. Late last year, cell phone tower developer and Shelby County Schools board member Billy Orgel purchased the building, which was set to be demolished if no one bought it, and he intends to transform it into residential housing.
