Take a Brewery Tour in Mississippi

Whether you’re a craft beer aficionado or looking to pair the latest stop on the Mississippi Seafood Trail with a great beverage, there are many breweries across the state that you absolutely need to try. Mississippi is a state rich in food, culture, history, and music, so it’s no small wonder there is a history of excellence at local craft breweries. Each one offers a unique flavor profile and experience, which provides you with a seemingly endless amount of beer to try. The team at Visit Mississippi knows how overwhelming the choice can be when there are so many notable Mississippi breweries to choose from, so here are a few worth checking out.

Mississippi Ale House (Olive Branch, MS)

While some breweries and alehouses choose to serve the occasional spirit, the Mississippi Ale House sticks strictly to its craft beer. In addition to serving its own products, a rotating tap list showcases beers from a variety of breweries across the state, so you’re likely to find something new to try every time you visit. You can enjoy your beer in several ways, from flight tastings and pint glasses to growlers.

If you’re coming here with a group and would rather have wine, you can bring a bottle of your own so long as you pay the cork fee. You can even bring your own food, but there are a few food trucks on-site for offering a range of delicious menu options for you to enjoy.

Chandeleur Island Brewing Company (Gulfport, MS)

Taking its namesake from the 50 miles of uninhabited coastal islands just off the Mississippi shore, Chandeleur Island Brewing Company has been operating along the Gulf Coast since 2013. Although it is still relatively new to the craft beer scene, the brewery has quickly made a name for itself. Located in an historic building in downtown Gulfport, the brewery endeavors to make excellent ales using only the finest and freshest malted barley, hops, and local ingredients.

Natchez Brewing Company (Natchez, MS)

For a long time, Natchez – also known as The Little Easy – didn’t have a craft brewery. However, that all changed when Pat and Lisa Miller brought their love of craft beer and experienced brewing methods into the historic downtown district. While Natchez Brewing Company has a selection of well-known beers like Bluff City Blonde and Delta Shadow, it also boasts a food menu complete with Neapolitan, Detroit, and deep-dish style pizzas.
