Baseball & Brew

Baseball and beer go hand-in-hand here in America and it was high time that MNG Brewing extend their gift of brewing to the baseball community. The lucky recipients were the loyal readers and bloggers of a well established Philadelphia Phillies site called We Should Be GMs.

The beer's name, Phantastic Philsner, was the voted upon winner out of several submitted entries. The beer itself is best described as a classic pilsner with fruity aroma from Nelson Sauvin and Challenger hops with a sweet twist of Indian Sarsaparilla. Original brew date was May 4th, so it will be ready right in time for the 4th of July.

Hexagon is a labor of love. This heady brew is the result of many hours of research and planning. It started as a simple desire to blend tarragon and apricot into a Golden Lager, then evolved into a six-ingredient behemoth of a brew. After studying the art of blending spices, I decided to expand the flavor of this brew to include marjoram, bay leaves, and savory spices, with the sweetness of honey. Its aroma is remenicient of sweet, rich tobacco and it will be a delicious, mead-like, flavorful beer. Bottling will take place in early June, and will be ready in July.

In other news, Blonde over Blueberry is bottled and will be ready for consumption in mid-June. The intent is for it to make its debut when both northern and southern affiliates meet here in the humid south.
