Mo Honey, Mo Problems - Mockery Brewing Co. - 95 Rating

Responses from Mockery owner and brewer Zach Rabun.

BC: Who came up with this beer’s recipe?
Our brewing team brainstormed up this recipe. We have been stretching the limits on what a beer can be and found the wonderful Braggot style to be a perfect match for our goals.

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
It's unique. With nearly half of the fermentables coming from honey, Mo' Honey, Mo' Problems has a truly distinct flavor profile. We use a mix of 275 pounds of orange blossom and 275 pounds of wildflower honey from some great local apiarists, which gives this beer a really great floral, sweet aroma which is followed by a well-balanced and complex flavor.

BC: Where does this beer’s name come from?
An homage to one of our favorite tracks from one of our favorite artists.

BC: Is this your “desert island beer?”
I don't see why not! Light, dry, and very refreshing, this beer is perfect for a sandy beach. And at nearly 11% ABV, it will keep you warm through the chilly nights. Also, pairs well with toasted coconut macaroons, lobster tail, and loneliness.

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?
Colorado honey shines in this cauldron of rich flavors, mmmmm.

BC: Do you know a story – or have a personal story – that revolves around this beer?
We were able to connect with our friends at Saucony Creek in Kutztown, PA and collaborate on a version of this braggot.  We aged the braggot in brandy barrels and added pear juice. So this beer has connected people from over 1500 miles apart.

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
A nice brie cheese covered in raspberry puree while watching the Broncos dominate their foes!
