2. Natchez Brewing Company, Natchez, MS

Natchez's first brewery is doing so well, they've already had to expand into a new building. In addition to year-round offerings such as the “Bluff City Blonde” and “Alt-ered State” (a German-style amber), they also offer seasonal brews including “Delta Shadow,” a Black IPA.  

3. Biloxi Brewing Company, Biloxi, MS

The Biloxi Brewing Company is helping the Gulf Coast make a name for itself in the craft beer world, and the brewery pays homage to its home by featuring the Biloxi Lighthouse on its logo. Try the Black Gold Breakfast Blend, which is aged on coffee beans, and the popular “Biloxi Beach Blonde,” which is on tap at a number of local bars.

4. Yalobusha Brewing Company, Water Valley, MS

Yalobusha Brewing Company, or Yalobrew, is located in Water Valley in the historic Hendrick's Machine Shop, which was built in 1860. Yalobusha Brewing offers four brews year-round as well as a rotation of seasonal and experimental beers, and the taproom is open Fridays and Saturdays for tours. 

5. Mississippi Brewing LLC, Gulfport, MS

A relative newcomer, Mississippi Brewing is making a splash in Gulfport with its Courage Pale Ale, “Red Headed Step Child,” and Southern Light Blonde Ale. First a brew pub, then borrowing the production facilities of Biloxi Brewing Company, this nano-brewery is sure to be a big player in the future.

At Southern Prohibition Brewing, it's not enough to make great beer—which they do.

And the can art on their offerings is nearly as impressive as what's inside!
