Mississippi is known for chefs who use their creativity to evolve Southern cuisine, including several James Beard Award winners and nominees who create sought-after dishes using local inspiration with farm-to-table freshness.
On the other side of the palate, Mississippi’s craft breweries and brew pubs pull from the same deep cultural well, creating original beers with locally sourced ingredients and uniquely Mississippi twists.
The “Sip Mississippi” series from Visit Mississippi explores the inspiration that drives these breweries and the impact they have on their communities. I shot video and interviewed subjects for the series. Check out this episode on Mighty Miss Brewery for a sample of the state’s top brews.
