We are headed to MS for a few days to help out with some family things and then go to a reunion for me. Â We are both native Mississipians, and as much as we love it, compared to NC it is a craft beer wasteland. Â That isn’t to say that Mississippi is completely void of craft beer. Â It’s just that, when compared to NC, it’s slim pickings way down South in Mississippi. Â We know that Mississippi now has the Lazy Magnolia Brewery, but it’s on the coast which is not where we are headed. Â 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. Â Since NoDa wouldn’t let us growler a MÃ©nage a QuÃ d to take with us, we couldn’t decide on one happy medium. Â So, he chose a Midnight Madness (a Cascadian Dark Ale made with five hop varieties: Cascade, Centennial, Columbus, Chinook, and Warrior hops.) Â 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!
