Boris’ Beer of the Week

This week’s beer comes to us again from Lazy Magnolia Brewery in Mississippi.  Usually I choose a beer that I’m familiar with, but our last offering from LMB was so good, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity for us to taste this one together. It’s an Imperial Rye Pale Ale called Timber Beast.  Of course, the alcohol content and flavor of any “Imperial” beer is going to be kicked up a few notches, so “Beast” may be an appropriate name.  Here’s a description straight from the brewer:

Timber Beast

Timber Beast is the first in Lazy Magnolia’s Back Porch series.  A spicy, full-bodied, rye pale ale balanced with a generous dose of Zythos hops, it’s a recipe inspired by the complex and beautiful flavors of Mississippi and a reflection of the strength and spirit of our very own Timber Beast.  Rye is a natural fit for the Imperial style.  The nutty sweetness of this hearty grain perfectly balances the generous hop bite and brings you back for another sip.

The Story

Timber Beast is a tribute to the wise woodsman who resides among the Piney Woods and Magnolia groves of the Hospitality State.  We’ve created Mississippi’s first Imperial Rye Pale Ale to celebrate the success this dedicated Southerner helped to achieve.  We lift our glasses to the mighty Timber Beast, to a spirit of optimism, adventure and variety.

Retreat to the Back Porch and lazily sip your way through this Imperial Rye Pale Ale.  Big Cheer’s Y’all.

If this has piqued your interest as much as me, grab a growler at Half Time for half price all this week and let’s compare notes.  Cheers!
