To Dan! Coconut Double India Pale Ale

One of Dan’s favorite lines was to introduce me as his oldest friend –not that he had known me all that long but that I was older than any of his other friends. I thought I might get tired of hearing it but Dan would always roar with laughter – so I was OK with it – I wish I could hear it again. He was like a younger brother to me and sometimes almost like a son – I loved Dan and will miss him forever.
— Bob Pike, friend of Dan

When news of the sudden and unexpected loss of one of the Atlanta beer scene’s most beloved souls, our local community was shocked. Mazurt Brewing Company co-founder Dan Rosen was involved in a fatal accident in early June 2017 and the hole he left was immediately felt by many. Eager to fill the void, we joined our friends Hamp (Dan’s Mazurt partner), Wayne (Cigar City), and JR (Max Lager’s) to celebrate Dan’s life the best way we knew how– to build a beer we know Dan would have loved.

If you never got to experience one of his huge imperial stouts served straight from a coconut, well, you missed out.

To Dan! is a flavorful, juicy, big IPA featuring fresh coconut– it’s like no other hoppy beer. Available for a short time in Atlanta, on draft and in limited, hand-labeled cans. We will be donating a portion of the proceeds to Dan’s former wife to assist with her expenses as she navigates this difficult time.

In Dan’s memory we ‘ll strive to make an impression in every little thing we do, and every single thing we make. To Dan!
