Taylor Hanson Talks Mmmhops, Craft Beers & Cooking


From Boy Band to Brewering: Taylor Hanson Talks Mmmhops, Craft Beers & Cooking

F&W apologizes in advance for reintroducing the almost unbearably catchy song “MMMBop” back into your psyche. But the 1997 mega-hit from Hanson, the pop band made up of brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson, has to be mentioned because of a new side project that you would probably never have associated with the baby-faced group: beer. In honor of the band’s 21-year existence, Hanson is releasing Mmmhops, a pale ale produced in partnership with Mustang, a craft brewery based in the Hansons’ home state of Oklahoma. Before it hits the shelves across the country, Mmmhops will be sold on the band’s upcoming tour starting in September. Middle brother and lead singer (as well as keyboardist and guitar player) Taylor Hanson chatted with F&W about good beer and yet another talent, cooking.
What does Mmmhops taste like?
It’s a really full-bodied pale ale. There’s a touch of roasted quality to it. It’s almost nutty. It’s got a good hoppy flavor—but not too crazy. We wanted it to be the type of beer that you’ll enjoy if you don’t think you’re into craft beers. It’s very drinkable. People will try it first because they’ll be like, “OK, I have to try Hanson's beer, this is ridiculous.” And then they’ll be like, “This is actually really good.”
What are your favorite craft beers?
My personal favorite is Fat Tire; I love the amber ale. It’s very full-bodied. It’s got a nice long finish to it. I almost always lean toward ambers and pale ales. But I like everything from the Dogfish Head to Three Floyds, Tröegs to Stone’s Arrogant Bastard. I’m a huge Sierra Nevada fan. I think Sierra Nevada pale ale is the closest thing to the flavor of Mmmhops. Any time the beer gets malty, I tend to not be as much as a fan. But I do like Anchor Steam and that is on the maltier side. That’s the one exception.
What was the first beer you ever had?
Something terrible, I’m sure. Probably in the Bud Light family, where you drink it and you think, Now, tell me again, why do people like this? I was probably 13. I love to cook and I think I discovered craft beer for the first time in the context of good food. Beer and cooking go so well together.
What’s your go-to meal to cook and what would you pair with it?I love Italian food because of the simplicity and really great flavors. I love a good risotto. I love to cook a rack of lamb with just fresh herbs and fresh unsalted butter. That’s all you need. If you have good-quality meat and salt and pepper, parsley, sage, thyme—you’re done. With that I think you can have a lighter beer, a pilsner or something that’s a little fruitier. A Blue Moon would be really nice with that kind of meal.
What’s your favorite beer bar in Tulsa?
We have quite a few really good bars in Tulsa, but I have to say my favorite is the corner bar in my neighborhood called Valkyrie. It’s run by a group of guys who keep pulling in great new craft beers. One of the things about a great bar is being able to have that one-on-one with your bartender, who can go, “Check this out, you haven’t had this before.” And you actually trust that they’re going to hand you something that you’re not going to send back. They’re pushing what they think you’ll actually dig.
Are there any plans for a follow-up beer or spirit?
We have an IPA that we’ve had the pleasure of working on with our brewmaster, and it is amazing. This is a beer that will stop any beer snob in their tracks. I think that the pale ale is a great, drinkable beer but for those who want to go further, we’ll launch an Mmmhops-with-a-few-extra-mmm’s IPA. My non-beer poison would be tequila, which is dangerous. We’d need a song with a little more Latin flavor to name it.

Hanson Brothers and wifes leaving the Hangover 3 Premiere

Taylor Hanson on Oklahoma tornado: We're in shock

Posted 7 minutes ago by Corinne Heller
Taylor Hanson and his brothers joined the fun at the premiere of "The Hangover Part III" in Los Angeles on May 20, 2013, but their thoughts were with the people in their home state of Oklahoma, where a massive tornado killed at least 24 people, including seven children.

"Like people across the country, our hearts go out to everybody that's been struggling and been hit by the tornado," Taylor told the Associated Press at the premiere, standing alongside brothers Isaac and Zac.

The Hanson pop trio, whose 1997 song "MMMBop" is featured in the comedy film, are from the city of Tulsa, located more than 110 miles from Moore, which was devastated by the deadly twister.
"We have family, our kids, they're at home in Oklahoma while the storm is happening so, I mean, I think we're just in shock and really just have that feeling that a lot of people do, which is, 'What can I do? How can I help?' and just grateful that so many people have already jumped in to lend a hand to those that were struggling," he added.

All three brothers are married with children. Isaac and Zac each have two, while Taylor and his wife welcomed their fifth child, a baby girl, last October.

There was more than one wolf pack walking the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of “The Hangover Part III.” The band of brothers Hanson joined actors Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Ken Jeong to celebrate the third chapter in the “Hangover” franchise.
It might seem surprising to see Isaac, 32, Taylor, 30, and Zac, 27, promoting the movie, since they’re still best known for breaking into the music business as long-haired, squeaky-clean teenagers in the 1990s. But it turns out that their signature tune “MMMBop” is the first song on the movie’s soundtrack, and is played right at the top of the film.
“It’s a very funny scene,” Taylor Hanson said, dressed in a green suit jacket and a lock of his signature blonde hair falling across his face. “Whether you’re a Hanson fan or a ‘Hangover’ fan, I think you’re gong to find it funny.”
Isaac, the eldest Hanson bro, looked dapper in a slim black suit, bright pink pocket square, and his hair swooped high on his head. Zac, a.k.a. Little Hanson, was the most casual with a leather jacket, necklace, a five o’clock shadow, and shoulder length hair. Hey, they wouldn't be recognizable unless at least one of them had hair past his chin, right?
They also seem to be proud that their debut single from 1997 is still getting some play, even if it’s for comedic material. But it’s been fun watching this trio grow up, become husbands and fathers, and continue their music career. In fact, they’re promoting a new album “Anthem,” set for a release next month.
And since Hanson performed their first professional gig in 1992, this year marks the band’s 21stbirthday. And how else could they celebrate but to come out with their very own beer, appropriately named MmmHops?
“People will actually be able to get a hangover with Hanson,” Taylor quipped. So, with a new album, a new beer, and a presence in a blockbuster flick, Hanson might be the band of the summer once again.

Hanson brothers Taylor, Isaac and Zac looked rather gorgeous on the red carpet at the premiere of The Hangover Part III last night.

The 'MmmBop' stars proved they've only got better with age as they posed for photographers at the Los Angeles screening on Monday evening (20 May). Who remembers when they first burst onto the music scene with their long blonde hair and catchy tunes?!

Hanson's appearance at the Hangover Part III comes because their classic hit 'MmmBop' is on the movie's soundtrack - and proved the ultimate setting for them to introduce their brand new beer called MmmHops. No joke, we promise!

The trio announced they were working on a beer venture back in 2011, and lucky guests at the Hangover Part III after-party - including Ed Helms - got to sample the drink first.

Taylor tweeted a photo of himself and Ed together with the caption: "Enjoying the first run of @mmmhopsbeer with the one and only @edhelms, at thehangover after party."

Hanson drinking beer?! We know! We still kind of think of them as kids, too.

In other Hanson news, the boys just marked the annual Hanson Day in their hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, where thousands of Hanson fans from across the globe gather to celebrate the boy band.

Hanson Day was originally declared on 6 May 1997 as a one off event, but fans still recognise it every year with album listening parties, dinners, movie nights and more.
