Ginny and Charlie often find themselves on the road and a quest for new tastes and new things to sample is often high on their agenda. This week on Bottoms Up they find two beers on a recent trip that harken back to prior travels and share them with you as recommendations. Both brews were not tried before the show was recorded, but both come out winners this week!

Two Beers Looking Back On Two Trips!
Schlafly Brand Pilsner Beer
From the Schlafly website (schlafly.com)…
Our Pilsner is a golden and crystal clear lager. The hops lend a pleasant bitterness and a lemony, peppery taste. They are added at the beginning of the brew for bitterness and the end for flavor. The subtle and lightly toasted flavor of the malts is the perfect backbone to showcase the special hop blend. Pilsner can be traced to its namesake, the city of Plzeň (pronounced pilsen) in the western half of the Czech Republic, once part of Bohemia. In 1842, Joseph Groll developed the first light colored beer, an immediate success. Still a popular style, Pilsner influenced the American light lager we know today.
Lazy Magnolia Timber Beast Rye IPA
From the Lazy Magnolia website (lazymagnolia.com)…
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.
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.
