FLAGSHIP FEBRUARY SPOTLIGHT
SOUTHERN PECAN by Lazy Magnolia Brewery
The beer that started it all in the great state of Mississippi! Lazy Magnolia was the first production brewery in Mississippi, opening its doors in 2005. Its flagship, Southern Pecan, quickly became a hit along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and beyond.
Southern Pecan Nut Brown Ale is the first beer in the world, to our knowledge, made with whole roasted pecans. The pecans are used just like grain and provide a nutty characteristic and a delightful depth to the flavor profile. This beer is very lightly hopped to allow the malty, caramel, and nutty flavors shine through. The color is dark mahogany. Southern Pecan won a Bronze Medal in the 2006 World Beer Cup in the Specialty Beer category.
We are proud to be apart of the Lazy Magnolia family as their first distributor, and we raise our glass to many more years of success! Please support this great local brewery that paved the way for craft beer in Mississippi!

We were extremely proud to be a part of a check presentation to Team Gleason Foundation from Port Orleans Brewing Company today. A total of $26,895 was raised from the sale of Gleason IPA in Louisiana and Mississippi. $10,000 was raised right here on the MS Gulf Coast! Thanks again South Mississippi for your support of this great cause! We hope to raise much more next year.
Yesterday, we were honored to present a check in the amount of $5,000 to the Team Gleason Foundation to help support their mission to provide equipment, technology, care and adventures to those living with ALS! These funds were raised through the sales of Gleason IPA at local on and off premise accounts along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We would like to thank our old pal Tim Wold and Port Orleans Brewing Company for bringing this program to us and our local retailers and consumers for supporting it. Co-owner, Zach Strief, also announced that he and his wife will be matching the donation dollar for dollar to bring the total to $10,000! Money raised for a great cause, one pint at a time! #teamgleason #gleasonipa #nowhiteflags
FLAGSHIP FEBRUARY SPOTLIGHT:
FAT TIRE AMBER ALE by New Belgium Brewing
The Fat Tire story from co-founder, Kim Jordan:
"We started Fat Tire in 1991 when my then-husband took a bike trip through Belgium tasting Belgian beers. We were inspired by that trip to bring a more interesting beer to American drinkers; a new option among the countless bland, mass-produced, big company beers.
But what makes Fat Tire really special is simplier. Unlike many beer companies, we never sold out to a bigger company. New Belgium Brewing Company is 100% employee-owned and proudly independent. From the beginning, I’ve said that when you put people before profits, it’s amazing how priorities shift. Because business can, and should, be a force for good. Fat Tire is a testament to that belief. And it inspires how we act as a company.
"We brew Fat Tire with the same high-quality, natural ingredients we used in the original recipe – no weird additives or industrial fillers that many big companies use. You won’t find a lot of bells and whistles or exotic hop combinations either, just an easy-drinking Amber Ale that’s stayed true to its roots for over 25 years."

FLAGSHIP FEBRUARY SPOTLIGHT:
BOSTON LAGER by Samuel Adams
One of the first beers to introduced us to craft beer, way back in 1988!
Samuel Adams Boston Lager helped lead the American beer revolution, reviving a passion for full-flavored brews. It is the best example of the fundamental characteristics of a great beer, offering a full, rich flavor that is both balanced and complex. It is brewed using a decoction mash, a time consuming, traditional four vessel brewing process discarded by many contemporary brewers. This process brings forth a rich sweetness from the malt that makes it well worth the effort. Samuel Adams Boston Lager® also uses only the finest of ingredients including two row barley, as well as German Noble aroma hops. The exclusive use of two row barley not only imparts a full, smooth body but also gives the beer a wide spectrum of malt flavor ranging from slightly sweet to caramel to slightly roasted. The Noble hops varieties, Hallertau Mittelfruh and Tettnang Tettnanger, add a wide range of floral, piney and citrus notes, which are present from the aroma, through the flavor, to the lingering smooth finish. We take great pride in the Noble hops used in our beers. They are hand selected by founder and owner, Jim Koch, and our other brewers from the world’s oldest hops growing area. Among the world’s most expensive, they cost twenty times as much as other hops.
Boston Beer Company is so committed to producing beers of the highest quality that, to this day, Jim Koch still tastes each batch of Boston Lager before it is packaged to ensure that it reaches the company's high quality standards. We'll drink to that!
