I get to go to a private bottling party tonight. Mississippi's lone brewer, Lazy Magnolia, is wasting no time taking advantage of two new (to MS) laws that take effect at midnight; brewing of beer higher than 5% ABW, and the ability to sample beers on site.
The irony is that they have been producing contract beers for other labels over 5% for direct export to other states (legally, of course) but this brew is staying in state on their label. In honor of the legislator who carried the law thru the legislature, they have a Rye IPA ready to bottle tonight called Timber Beast. I'll have more info on the name and alcohol content when I get back.
The other law, sampling wares on site, they have been ridiculously good about adhering to. Now folks taking a tour of the brewery will be able to sample the products!
This was mostly a teaser for Tom, who could use a little universe unbalancing
