  • Beer Mug: Timber Beast

    Name: Timber Beast

    Brewery: Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company

    Location: Kiln, Mississippi

    Taste: 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.
