Friends & Neighbors

It is the that time of year again, and we are very excited!  The Annual Great Mississippi River Balloon Race is set and ready and the weather will be beautiful.  Fat Mama’s will have a Beer Garden this year with 5 beers on tap, an additional 80 seats in the parking lot, and 8-12 artist booths set up in the parking lot.  We will have Miller Lite, Blue Moon, Abita Andy Gator, Lazy Magnolia Timberbeast and Sam Adams Octoberfest set up in the beer garden!  All draft beers come in our 22 oz yellow cups, that are in every house within 250 miles of Natchez.  We will also be accepting credit card payments in the beer garden as well, you got to love iPads.

The beer garden will be open Friday 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Saturday 10:00 am – 8:00 pm and Sunday 11:00 am – 6:00 pm, so be sure to come hang out try some beers, and enjoy the weekend!

Also, as a late addition, we got a case of Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale, which is a seasonal beer recently made available in Mississippi, with only 80 cases available statewide.  These are delicious and will quickly run out, however for the time being we have them, they are cold, and they are fantastic.

Finally, you can win an Ipad by purchasing a ticket to the Great Mississippi River Balloon Race and scanning their QR code on the festival grounds, while enjoying music from the North Mississippi All-stars, Pat Green, Benton Blout, The Walrus and many other musicians!

New Beer Law in MS!

Friends & Neighbors

The MS legislature earlier this year voted to allow higher content beer in the State of Mississippi.  The law started on July 1, 2012, and we just got our first shipment of high content craft beer in! They are big, flavorful and definitely not your average beer.  We will be rotating different high content craft beers in and out over the next few weeks and seeing what people like the best.  We currently have the following:

Rogue Chocolate Stout, 22 Ounce Bottle
Rogue Chipolte Ale, 22 Ounce Bottle
Mons Abby Dubbel, 25 Ounce Bottle

Rogue Chocolate Stout is a heavy beer, with a strong flavor and aroma and hint of chocolate.
Rogue Chipolte Ale is an ale, with a light smoky flavor and clean finish
Mons Abby Dubbel is Belgium inspired beer that is fruity and slightly sweet

Just ask our staff about them, and they can point you in the right direction!
