    Good Morning!

    It's that time again...you know, when Short's Brewing Company releases another installment of their 2013 specialty brew schedule...this chapter introduces a new character to the scene--

    In it's original format, Mmmkay was produced using the final runnings of Aww Jeah, our double Huma-Lupa-Licious. It garnered a huge amount of acclaim at the pub--in accordance, we decided it was worthy to be a state wide release in 2013.

    Mmmkay is scheduled to get bottled on Friday. Cheers!

    --Herman

    And how about that label? Too cool!

    MMMKay (5% ABV, 85 IBU) is an India Pale Lager, originally brewed from the second runnings of Aww Jeah. Now, built of its own accord, the nose is a dynamic explosion of hop aromas! The initial fragrances are of bold citrus fruit: guava, orange, and lemon. As the head settles, the aromas shift to fresh evergreen accents. Indicated by the light body and pale yellow appearance, malt was an afterthought, and the focus here would be hops. An array of enjoyable American hop flavors shock the palate ranging from slightly fruity to intense earthy pine. A bold bitterness dominates the finish enhanced by the clean unobtrusive nature of its lager origin.

    This one was killer at the anniversary party, can't wait for it. I'll be at the pub Friday, so would've loved to grab some while there.

    Will definitely be getting a sixer of this.

    I was not a huge fan of the original beer, labeled in Huma bottles. This is a slightly tweaked recipe though, right?

    Labeled in Huma bottles? This beer has never been bottled before.

    I think you are thinking of the Huma X that was released in bottles alongside Aww Jeah. Mmmkay was a draft only at the Anniversary party.

    Mmmkay is slated to hit stores the middle of next week.
    It has not been bottled yet. It follows Mmmkay so soon I would think.

    For a couple cases of MmmKay at the pub. It's like an easier to drink Beard of Zeus (in a good way). On my second Sixer in two days and it is PERFECT for beach and water.

    Ginter - so elite he drank a beer out of a bottle, that was labeled huma, but was actually another beer. Making stuff up is awesome.

    Chill man. Dude made an honest mistake. There was a bottle conditioned version of Huma, called Huma X, that was bottled and sold at the Anniversary Party the same year that Mmmkay was made. Maybe read the whole thread next time.

    It was to my knowledge that by the middle of the week this should start seeing distribution--not sure if draft or bottles will hit first.

    Headed to the Ludington/Manistee area for a camping trip via US 23 to Ann Arbor and 96 West all the way to U.S. 31. So, I will be passing AA, Lansing, Grand Rapids, and Muskegon as far as cities go, and am willing to go anywhere else on that route, say within 20 miles. I will be traveling with some buddies of mine. They like me enough to detour about that far, but probably not much farther than that.
