“Beer, music and sports, the prime conductors for a three-alarm bar, are about to combine in Downtown.
Station 3: The Memphis Firehaus, a fall beer garden series located on the corner of Third Street and Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, opens to the public Oct. 1.
A mid-1800s, vacant firehouse will be the site of the pop-up beer garden series run by Benjamin Orgel,Paul Stephens and Logan Scheidt, along with J.C. Youngblood of Central BBQ, the same people responsible for The Revival at The Tennessee Brewery.
Orgel said people can expect the same concept as the Brewery but with a sports bar atmosphere. The flat-screen TVs hung on the walls and interior paint that pays homage to the Grizzlies color scheme make that very apparent. Even the picnic tables flaunt signature Grizzlies shades of blue.
High Cotton, Memphis Made, Ghost River and Tennessee Brew Works have all made special beers for The Memphis Firehaus and Sache will be on-hand to sell Firehaus shirts. Similar to The Revival, fans of the Firehaus will get to enjoy live music, a rotating circuit of food trucks and local art. Be sure to check out more original paintings by artist Adam Exelbierd that will be displayed in the bar.
The series runs Thursdays through Sundays until Nov. 30 and will open for Memphis Grizzlies and Memphis Tigers home games along with concerts held at FedExForum. High Cotton Brewing Co. also just announced it will hold its second annual Oktoberfest at the Firehaus on Oct. 3.”
