Mississippi’s Lucky Town Brewing Company will celebrate the launch of its beers with a release party in Jackson on Saturday, Dec. 15.
The party will be held at the Underground 119 in Downtown Jackson and will feature Lucky Town’s first two beers. Pints of “Ballistic Blonde,” a Belgian-style blonde ale, and “The Flare Incident,” a maple and brown sugar oatmeal stout, will be served.
The beer will start flowing at 6:30 p.m., with live music from Bryan Lee, aka the Braille Blues Daddy, starting at 9 p.m. A cover charge will be in effect at 8 p.m.

In September, Lucky Town announced that it had agreed to terms with a contract brewery and purchased a 30-barrel fermenting tank as it continued to plan for its own brewing facility in Mississippi. Under the agreement, Alabama’s Back Forty Beer Co. will brew and package Lucky Town’s beers. Lucky Town, meanwhile, will be responsible for beer recipes, distribution, sales and marketing.
The Lucky Town team plans to eventually open a brewery in the Jackson area.
