I have visited Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company,
in Kiln, Hancock County, Mississippi, USA.
Brewery/Brewpub Location Map
- Follow this link for a map of all the breweries and brewpubs I have visited.
Reason for Visit: We were in Southern Mississippi visiting family and decided it would be a good idea to stop by Lazy Magnolia for one of their regular Saturday morning tours. No reservations are necessary just stop by the brewery at the prearranged time. There are more details on their website. You may wish to note that the brewery is not allowed to provide samples due to to very strict alcohol regulations in Mississippi.
|Photograph - Interior: This is production end of the brewery where boiling and fermentation take place prior to kegging. There is about an equal amount of space to the right of the image with storage space and a large refrigerated room. This picture is taken from an elevated platform above the office. At the time of the visit they occupied about 5,000 square feet but were planning to take over an adjoining area to double there size and make room for a bottling line. |
The brewery sat just high enough to avoid flooding during Hurricane Katrina so they were fortunate indeed. They did lose electricity and therefore a couple of batches but they escaped otherwise undamaged and quickly got back to business.
|Photograph - Interior: This is where the party pigs are filled. Notice the pressure gages and the stainless steel tube descending down into the jug.|
|Photograph - Exterior: These are 5.2 gallon kegs outside the brewery entrance waiting to be filled with Lazy Magnolia beer. I do believe that's also a magnolia tree sitting in the pot by the doorway. We were told that generally Lazy Magnolia doesn't brew on Saturdays but they've been quite successful lately so they were brewing away during our tour.|
|Front of Coaster: The Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company features a circular coaster design in gray scale. The central is a magnolia blossom in full bloom. The name, location and website address of the brewery bracket the central image to form a border. It also includes the slogan, "Mississippi's Brewery."|
|Back of Coaster: Here is found more information about the brewery and its locale. It reads:|
"Named after the late blooming magnolia tree that overlooks the Jourdan River where we started brewing, Lazy Magnolia was started with the sole purpose of bringing fresh, naturally brewed beer to Mississippi. We draw upon the unique southern heritage that made KILN, MS the bootleg capital of Mississippi. Breaking from tradition, our brew is legal."
|Glassware: The Lazy Magnolia pint glass features a full color design on clear glass. Once again the magnolia blossom appears, underlined by the name of the brewery in script.|
|Sign: This is a sign that Lazy Magnolia distributed to retailers such as grocery stores to promote off-premise sales. At the time of our visit the brewery had plans for a bottling line but the smallest size then available was the "party pig" which is approximately the size of a case of beer. If you wanted smaller quantities you would need to buy it by the glass in a bar or restaurant. The planned bottling line should widen their point-of-sale capability considerably.|
|Bumper Sticker: Here's another nice piece of promotional material.|
|Label: This is a label that Lazy Magnolia would place on top of keg to identify their product. In this case the label would be for their Southern Pecan Ale. There are check boxes for the size of the keg (15.5 or 5.2 gallons) and there are tick marks around the border that can be used to designate the kegging date.|
