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!

Mississippi Market, Jackson MS

Friends and Neighbors

We would like to thank the Mississippi Development Authority for hosting the MS Market 2012 at the Trademart in the Jackson Fairgrounds.

Fat Mama’s Tamales Inc exhibited our “Knock-You-Naked” Margarita Mix and Fire & Ice Pickles and we far surpassed our expectations!  To all the old friends we were able to see again and the new ones we made, we had a great time seeing everyone.  We picked up a lot of new wholesale customers, and made some great contacts, who we are already in talks with regarding our products!  If you or someone you know has product or products and are interested in testing the waters at market, we highly recommend the Ms Market.  MDA goes out of their way to make sure all exhibitors are taken care of, and provide a great two days of market.

Again thank you to the MDA, our customers and everyone who has had a hand in Fat Mama’s Tamales over the last 20 plus years!

Bluffs & Bayous Magazine includes Fat Mama’s Tamales Restaurant in Natchez MS

Friends and Neighbors,

Fat Mama’s Tamales was recently written up in Bluffs & Bayous Magazine by Jennie Guido.  It is great article and greatly appreciate her and everyone at Bluffs & Bayous for including us.  If you haven’t had a chance to read our article or this months issue, you can now read it online!

“I love the Natchez Nachos, which is a platter of chips covered in spicy cheese; bell peppers; jalapeno peppers; onions; and, my absolute favorite, black olives. During the summer months, there is nothing I love more than heading down to Fat Mama’s, getting a frosty beer or a frozen margarita, sitting on the porch, and enjoying a Natchez sunset over the river. Sometimes, being back home has its perks, and the view and atmosphere are definitely the ones that brought me back.” -Jennie Guido or download the PDF of the article here.

Happy Reading!
