This brand new beer from Lazy Magnolia pours a bright golden straw color with moderate haze and a radiant head of white foam. Wheat beers – whether American, Belgian, or even German – are often served with a citrus garnish. Lazy Magnolia has taken it a step further here, incorporating natural orange flavor into Endless Summer, similar to how the Belgians brew their Witbiers with orange peel. Look for big, luscious citrus notes to jump out right away in the aroma, thanks to the citrus usage as well as the use of Citra hops. A clean wheaty note underpins the aroma. The citrus character really bursts forth on the palate, too, taking center stage in this super refreshing wheat beer. Look for the malt core to offer a satisfying backbone with a bit of wheat’s characteristic tanginess. We found the hop bitterness low, but augmented by the zesty citrus notes to provide plenty of balance and an engaging, refreshing character that makes this new offering from Lazy Magnolia perfect for the warmer months. For pairing options, we’d look to fresh salads with sliced mandarins, grilled fish with citrus and herbs, chicken tacos with a fruity tropical salsa, lobster rolls with lemon tarragon sauce, or a moderately spicy ceviche. Cheers!

Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company was founded by Mark and Leslie Henderson in 2004. The first steps toward the founding of Lazy Magnolia occurred one Christmas when Leslie bought Mark a homebrewing kit because she couldn't think of anything else to get him. We’ve all been there, right? You don’t know what to get someone, so you give something that YOU want, and hope for the best. Mark only got to brew one batch of beer before Leslie took over, leaving Mark to put his engineering skills to work designing new equipment, tools, and gizmos to enhance the homebrewing process. It didn't take long for this hobby to take over their home and all their free time. The house was completely overtaken with 5-gallon glass jugs, copper heat exchangers, and bubbling buckets of beer as they refined their recipes.

Family and friends were so impressed that they encouraged the couple to go pro; many even offered to invest in such a venture. So Mark and Leslie started doing some serious research to answer basic questions about the legal status of breweries in Mississippi (there were none at that point) and the potential market in the state for specialty beer. Much to their surprise, all answers came back positive. The time seemed ripe for Mississippi to join the rest of the nation in the craft beer revolution. A building was secured in September 2004 and the brewing equipment was delivered in October and fully set-up by December. The dream became a reality in January 2005 when the first batch of beer was brewed on the Lazy Magnolia system, making them the first packaging brewery in Mississippi since Prohibition.

In December of 2022, the couple sold the brewery to new owners, Jason Anderson and Ryan Bowen, who have invested $1 million to renovate the facility and ramp up production, including the introduction of new beers such as this month’s featured Endless Summer.
