Great Friends, Great Beer.
Hap Motlow, of the legendary Jack Daniel family from Lynchburg, TN used to tell his friend Harry Lipman "just alike Jack Daniels, a great beer starts with the best ingredients. good water, choice grains, and high grade yeast...brewed with integrity" As the first distributor of Jack Daniels after the repeal of prohibition, Harry passed this lesson down through generations of Lipmans, who remain in the industry to this day. Hap & Harry’s honors the friendship these two men shared over a half a century ago. Cheers to great friends and great beer!

Bottle as Hap & Harry’s Tennessee Lager. Clear very pale yellow color, big fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of dusty straw, white pepper. Taste is lightly peppery lemon, moderately bitter finish. Not bad.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2011
A golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, a pissy grassy malt with light catty notes. In mouth, a crisp malt with light corn notes, very boring. On tap at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam, Oct. 22 2011.

Basic yellow fizzy stuff. No aroma as well, a tad watery. Basic taste, not horrible but its a drainpour after 2 small swallows.

shrubber85 (10760) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Bottle. Sour milk, lemon, corn/barley malt, and straw aroma. Golden yellow with giant white head. Mildly sweet barley malt and mildly bitter hay flavor. Decent body. A pretty good pale lager.

deyholla (10216) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a note of sweet stale corn as well as musty bread and no hop character. Flavor was similar with a stale corn note and musty sweet bread. Thin.

12 oz. bottle from jbrana- thanks, Justin! Pours a clear gold color with a surprisingly small head and a surprisingly deep hue to the gold. Way more color than a typical pale lager. The aroma is corny, grainy, and grassy, with some crackers and sugar sweetness. The flavor is basically the same. Nothing offensive or interesting here. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. A little more body, less carbonation than most in the style. Fine. I’d reach for it over Budweiser or any similar alternatives. Also, great label.

Suttree (6105) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Pale yellow, with a thin white head. Smells like grass, corn and...look, I’m gonna be honest here - the main reason I got this is because I was at the Knoxville Brewer’s Jam and there wasn’t a line here. Not that is bad or anything, its just very, y’know, ordinary...

Patrickctenchi (6096) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle: (as Original Tennessee Lager) Clear, sparkling, pink-gold with a whipped white head. Corn and caramel malt aroma. Taste is very malty, corn/grain.....sweet and slightly heavy corn and caramel malt. Decent....though not very lively.

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Pale yellow pour with white head. Aroma is wet paper and light sour malt. Flavor is very light malt and wet paper. Light bodied/watery. Ok beer for this bland style

Listed as Hap & Harry’s Lynchburg Lager at the Bound’ry in Nashville, TN. Some sort of spice in the aroma: Christmas-like. A bit dry and almost chalky. This is just odd. Doesn’t quite taste right but hard for to identify why.
