We are headed to MS for a few days to help out with some family things and then go to a reunion for me. We are both native Mississipians, and as much as we love it, compared to NC it is a craft beer wasteland. That isn’t to say that Mississippi is completely void of craft beer. It’s just that, when compared to NC, it’s slim pickings way down South in Mississippi. We know that Mississippi now has the Lazy Magnolia Brewery, but it’s on the coast which is not where we are headed. So, just in case are are unable to get our hands on some of Lazy Magnolia’s offerings, we had to pack provisions.
Hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to continue to drink in the manner to which she has become accustomed, even while traveling.
The Mr is a hophead. I’m more of a stout and porter kind of girl. Since NoDa wouldn’t let us growler a Ménage a Quàd to take with us, we couldn’t decide on one happy medium. So, he chose a Midnight Madness (a Cascadian Dark Ale made with five hop varieties: Cascade, Centennial, Columbus, Chinook, and Warrior hops.) I chose a Coco Loco (a Robust Porter made with chocolate and brown malts and toasted organic coconut).
That ought to keep us set…for a few days at least!
