Honestly, I don’t really care how you pronounce it. (For the record though, Pe-khan is the proper way.) Lazy Magnolia, a microbrewery out of Mississippi claims this to be the worlds first Pecan based beer. Very well, then, that just means there are no challengers to usurp their throne. Unfortunately, (and hopefully it was just the batch that I had) I missed the Pecan in the brew. Sure, if I really, really, tried to pick it out I could find it…. But growing up with pecan pies, fresh pecans straight off the tree/ground… this beer really disappointed me. Not that it wasn’t a solid brew, because it was. I just wanted more pecan flavor. Other than that, it was worth the six bucks or whatever I paid for it in Knoxville, Tennessee over the summer. I just figure that I am more unforgiving on my pecans and bbq than the majority of America.
Now, for the curious folk, 512 Brewing out of Austin, Texas also makes a Pecan ale, and theirs hits the spot. But it is draft only at this point which is unfortunate.
So, if you want a Pecan Ale, and live in Dixie, go ahead and pick up Lazy Magnolias, you will be glad that you did.
