Memphis Made Brewing Co. is expanding its Tennessee distribution.
The Memphis-based brewery signed a deal with DET Distributing Co. to distribute Memphis Made beer throughout West Tennessee, from Fayette County all the way to Jackson.
“After almost eight years of Shelby County being the only place in Tennessee to get Memphis Made Brewing Co. beer, we’re heading eastward,” co-founder Andy Ashby said.
“We’ve had people from Fayette and Tipton counties asking when we’d send beer their way for years. We’re looking forward to sending Memphis Made beer throughout West Tennessee.”
The distribution includes cans and kegs of Memphis Made’s three year-round beers (Cat Nap, Fireside and Junt), its year-round hard seltzer (FUN) as well as seasonal brews like HUG, Kitten Nap and Soulful Ginger.

This latest expansion significantly grows Memphis Made’s footprint in Tennessee. This new territory includes Chester, Crockett, Decatur, Dyer, Fayette, Gibson, Hardeman, Hardin, Haywood, Henderson, Lake, Lauderdale, Madison, McNairy and Tipton counties.
Memphis Made also has plans to gradually expand its distribution into additional regions.
Memphis Made opened in October 2013 and self-distributed for years, meaning the only place you could get their beer was in Shelby County.
In 2020, Memphis Made started distributing in North Mississippi through Clark Beverage Group, extending down to Starkville.
