MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Meddlesome Brewing Company, the newest brewery in Memphis, is set to have its grand opening June 30, but one of the company's brews is already raising eyebrows.

The new brewery is located at 7750 Trinity Road near Shelby Farms Park. The taproom will be open 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.

"We cannot be more excited," co-owner Richie Esquivel said. "We have community in our hearts...We want you to be able to come here bring your kids."

The taproom will feature a number of beers as well as a cream soda and root beer, according to the company's Facebook page.

The company is making a splash with the name of one of its beers: 201 Hoplar. The beer, named after the county jail, is described as something that could land you in 201 Poplar.

Esquivel said the beer's name is not meant to be insensitive. He said 201 Poplar is a place that resonates with Memphians and that's why the company chose the name.
