Hal and Mal's is a funky little restaurant and nightclub in downtown Jackson. It's in a converted warehouse down by the train tracks. In the back they have live entertainment, and pull in some pretty cool bands. Alison Krauss even played there once. Couple years ago, they drifted into the brewing business. Nice move! This is a delicious beer. Amber, spicy, floral, just sweet enough to counterbalance the hops. Had this with a cup of crawfish bisque. Mmmm....crawfish. This beer dovetailed very nicely with the spiciness of the soup. Now, Jackson, Mississippi may not strike many as a vacation destination. However, if you are in the area, you OWE it to yourself to drop by Hal and Mal's. Awesome food, cool music (and decor, by the way), and now delicious beer. Cheers!
