Hanson Mmmmhops Beer Taste Test

The Hanson brothers are many things: musicians, fathers, philanthropists … and beer sommeliers?

Well, they try their best.

Just in time for the upcoming American Craft Beer Week, Taylor, Isaac and Zac Hanson — who launched a pale ale called Mmmhops last year — celebrated the beer’s nationwide release with a special tasting exclusively for PEOPLE.

As Taylor explains the beer’s brief history, Zac quickly interjects, “We should drink some!”

Ignoring his brother, Taylor pours some ale into a glass and asks Isaac, “What comes to mind when you taste this, besides magic and unicorns?”

“Mmm, hops,” jokes Isaac who, judging by the generous “taste” he took, clearly enjoys the brew. After Taylor presses him to describe the beer, Isaac calls it, “a very malty pale ale. It’s got a nice, lively nose to it.”

“This is a very good introductory pale ale for those that are not familiar with craft beer,” he continues.

But the brothers’ serious tasting discussion only lasts so long.

“As a musician, what kind of notes does this beer have?” asks Zac.

Deadpans Taylor: “Mostly C-minor.”

Watch the brothers pour one on here — and when they host the Hop Jam beer and music festival in their native Tulsa, Oklahoma on May 18th, featuring their own beer and music, plus other local breweries and bands.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
