  • Paradise Lost Double Dry-Hop IPA: Limited Draft Supply

    Deep golden and opaque, Paradise Lost is our hoppiest beer to date. Massive tropical fruit and pine aromas escape the top of the glass thanks to the dose of Lupulin powder and a heavy handed double dry-hop. Clinging to the flaked oats like a life preserver, hop oils remain in suspension creating full flavors of peach, mango and pineapple. This is a beer celebrating our fondness of hops and how we utilize them, and like all IPAs it is meant to be drank fresh.

    Draft only and limited availability in Southern Prohibition's footprint.

    Devil’s Harvest Breakfast IPA, Crowd Control Imperial IPA, 2017 IPA (DRAFT ONLY) and Paradise Lost Double Dry-Hopped IPA (DRAFT ONLY) – Southern Prohibition is dry-hopping the South for people who crave it.

  • It's March 1st, and we haven't said a word about 2017 IPA?

    2014, 2015, 2016 and now 2017. Four years of four very different, superb India Pale Ales. We won't get all starry-eyed, reminiscing of IPAs gone by.. yet. SoPro is looking to the future, and the future is now.. sort of. This weekend we are releasing a draft only, single batch to send out to our magnificent, day one fans found right here in South Mississippi. This Summer you will all be seeing the 2017 16 ounce 4 packs hitting the shleves throughout our markets. 

    So what is 2017 IPA? Here it is from the mouth of our head brewer, Mr. Benjamin Green:

    “2017 IPA is a murky, golden hop bomb. Strong pine and citrus aroma, with pineapple and peach dominating the nose thanks to the large dosage of Centennial and Denali hops. Flavors of pine, grapefruit dankness and tropical fruit are surrounded by a moderate bitterness with a clean finish. Heavier than Devil’s and lighter than Crowd Control on the mouth feel, this year’s IPA is sticky yet refreshing. ABV clocks in at 6.2%"

    Find it around Hattiesburg this weekend and early next week!

  • Devil's Harvest Breakfast IPA: A New Beer in 2016. A New Look in 2017.

    By our own choosing, Devil's Harvest went through a period of vast changes in 2016. With access to exciting, new hops and a general drive to make things better, we embarked on this journey to take a brand we've had in our portfolio day one of Southern Prohibition, from good to great. I'd like would like to take a moment to answer some questions we've had about this beer:

    1) "My beer is cloudy, it's hazy, it's not aesthetically pleasing. Is something wrong with it?" 
    This is no accident. Devil's Harvest has entered the realm of East Coast "juicy" IPAs. While we have great respect for tradition and style guidelines, this "new" variation of IPA is very different from West Coast clear, bitter, and piney IPAs. 
    2) "What's the cloudiness from?" 
    It is from a portion of flaked oats in the grain bill, hop haze from the massive amount of dry hop, and from a small amount of lingering yeast -- all leading to a very aromatic, fruity, and cloudy IPA with no bitterness. These beers, like any IPA, are designed for fresh consumption.
    3) "Are all your beers from Southern Prohibition going to become this hazy?" 
    Nah.
    4) "Devil's Harvest has changed since it's changed. Can you change it back?" 
    This beer has been worked on for several months, batch to batch, and is to a point now where the preferred our consumer's price point and our end goal of flavor and aroma are in unison.
    5) "Are you going to rebrand Devil's Harvest with the new flavor?" 
    The big change in the product has taken us to rebranding the image and style, and we are extremely happy to share it with you. You'll be seeing this bad boy on the shelf in March this year. This beer is an East Coast IPA now -- and with the flaked oats, low ABV and orange juice appearance, Breakfast was a fun word to add. We now introduce to you Devil's Harvest Breakfast IPA instead of the American Pale Ale it once was.
    If you haven't had a Devil's Harvest in a while, grab one up. We are always improving, always learning and always making great beer and giving you something to look forward to from us at Southern Prohibition. Hope you like it and the new can.
    Thanks to everyone who has been on this ride, and thanks for the support as we rebuild and rebrand Devil's Harvest and make our brewery even bigger and better in 2017.
    Benjamin Green (Head Brewer) and the SoPro Team

    P.S. We are working on a very limited double dry-hopped IPA called Paradise Lost, but that's a different story.
