Mr Mean is inspired by 13th album recorded by The Ohio Players. The Ohio Players were an American funk and R&B band, most popular in the 70’s. The band formed in Dayton, O in 1959 as the Ohio Untouchables. In 1977 the band was at the height of its popularity when actor Fred Williamson asked them to create music for Mr Mean, a movie he was writing and directing. Mr Mean was also the first time the entire band was featured on the cover posing with their model.
This Mean ass IPA is pale orange with copper highlights and has a funk load of Amarillo and Centennial hops providing citrus and fruity aromas and a very bitter finish. The malt character is slightly bready/nutty with a dry finish. At 9% ABV and 96 IBU’s this beer will keep your inner soul groovin’ with every sip!
As an added treat they will have Colemine Records in the house dropping some funky 45’s for your listening pleasure. Tapping Party kicks off at 5:00….see you then!
