What To Expect From Yazoo Brewing in 2013

Nashville's beloved Yazoo Brewing Company has ambitious plans for 2013.  After a sales jump of 40% in 2012, the nine-year-old brewery added two new 200 bbl fermenters in December to bring their annual capacity to around 30,000 bbls a year.  In the first part of the year, Yazoo plans to advocate with other members of the Tennessee Craft Brewers Guild to reform Tennessee's 17% wholesale tax on beer.  As part of their effort, they will be brewing a second batch of last year's collaboration beer with Calfkiller Brewing Company, "The Beacon - a TN High Tax Ale."  The beer will be bottled for the first time and distributed across the state in hopes of raising awareness about their efforts to change the 17% wholesale tax.  Yazoo also plans to release a slew of seasonal beers in 2013 including Onward Stout in the winter, Rye Saison in the spring, Fall Lager in the Fall, as well as a yet-to-be-determined summer seasonal.  They also plan to release two new high gravity releases this year along with a second (bigger) batch of Bells Bend Preservation Ale with hops grown at Sulphur Creek Farm.  Lastly, the brewery will host a party on October 5th to celebrate their tenth anniversary, so mark your calendars!
