Lazy Magnolia defines Southern Beer in ways that no other brewery has yet managed. To begin with, this is the oldest brewery in Mississippi since Prohibition. Then, the ingredients that Lazy Magnolia works with are uniquely Southern, like sweet potatoes and pecans. But most importantly, there is a Southern Flair and style in everything that they do, whether it’s the packaging, the name of the brewery and beers, or the hospitality with which everyone is received who walks through their doors. If you want to know what it means to be Southern, go visit Lazy Magnolia and try some of their beers (as well as some other amazing concoctions that you can only get at the brewery).
The brewery was started in 2003 by a husband and wife team: Mark and Leslie Henderson. Mark and Leslie continue to manage every aspect of the business, especially when it comes to the brewing and the development of new beer recipes. And this is where Lazy Magnolia really shines, not only in the South, but throughout the United States as well (you can find their beers in most of the U.S. markets): the combination of quality and uniqueness in each of their brews. Whether It’s their now-famous Southern Pecan (the #3 Brown Ale in America) or their Jefferson Stout, there is a richness of flavor and consistency of quality that has put Lazy Magnolia on the top of the craft beer charts, and in the hearts of the craft beer consumers, to stay.
