Moccasin Bend Brewing Company
Bend Brewing Company is located in the historic St. Elmo district of
Chattanooga, TN. We’re at the foot of Lookout Mountain just steps
away from the world-famous Incline Railway and very near to the great
Moccasin Bend of the Tennessee River.
2010, Greg Mccourt joined the brewery and Courtney Tyvand and Duncan
Guy left to pursue other interest. Chris Hunt remained on as lead
brewer and partner. In 2012, longtime volunteer Braden Morris joined
the brewery as assistant brewer. With the addition, of three seven
barrel fermenters in 2013, MBBC is on track to become a major creative
force in chattanooga's craft beer renaissance.
brewery is located on the ground floor of a historic building at 4015
Tennessee Avenue in St. Elmo. The building is constructed of
foot-square red oak timbers and 31/2 foot thick walls made of granite
stone and mortar. Built in 1941 as a packaging factory for
K-Rations for WWII, Chris and Greg occasionally find artifacts
from that era in the building walls and ceiling.
to the brewery will be greeted by Max and Pending, our two brewery
dogs. Often, Chris's wife, Sandy will be taking care of the tasting
room, while Chris's teenage son Chandler, will be gaming in the office.
Chris's younger son Chad, can often be discovered sneaking soft drinks
from the cooler or chasing brew dog Max. Visitors to the tasting room,
may overhear commentary from partner and owner Greg, as he crunches
numbers from last week's receipts. Because we are family run, we are
family friendly and offer home made sodas and foosball, board games,
and an arcade game for the kids.
MBBC is proud to offer specialty ales and lagers in kegs of various sizes. Our tasting room is an intergral part of the brewery and samples of our beers can be tasted and tested on premises. We often host music on saturday nights, and a Celtic music circle on sunday afternoons. Please check our calendar, facebook, and twitter for scheduled music and tasting events at the brewery.
