Tennessee isn’t the first market that springs to mind when craft beer advancement comes up (thanks mostly to the local ABV cap on beers), but Memphis’ Wiseacre Brewing is going to change that. Cofounding brothers Davin and Kellan Bartosch spent years traveling the country (and globe) honing their craft before opening their doors in late 2013, spending time at some of the top breweries around the world. Their list straddles most of the international styles while still maintaining a consistently solid understanding of recipes, from IPA to Berliner Weisse and all the way back to a solid pilsner.
