MBJ Exclusive: Craft brewery to open near Shelby Farms Park

Meddlesome Brewing Co. signed a lease for 5,000 square feet at 7750B Trinity Road near Shelby Farms Park. The new brewery and taproom has a tentative February 2017 opening date.

Pugh and fellow owner, Richie EsQuivel, are still finalizing the days and hours of operation, but the space will include an outside patio as well as a 1,200-square-foot indoor taproom.

The taproom will be located in the front of the tenant bay, with the brewery operations in the back of the building. A cabled-off walkway will lead patrons from the taproom through the brewery to the patio located off one of the two loading docks.

Pugh and EsQuivel have many years of experience in both the homebrewer and commercial sectors. Pugh, the owner of Eclectic Ales, which sells brewery equipment, previously had a small brewery operation inside Rock’n Dough in Jackson, Tennessee. EsQuivel has worked with Boscos Restaurant & Brewing Co.

They have also both held leadership positions in the Bluff City Brewers & Connoisseurs and Memphis Brewers Association.
