100 Best Beer Bars 2014: South

Mahogany Bar
3810 Hardy St., Hattiesburg, Miss.; mahoganybar.net
A massive boar’s head watches over the scene; in these parts, he’s lovingly known as “The Hog.” Vinyl spins behind the bar, sometimes wavering through White Stripes songs I haven’t heard in years. After positioning myself between a few 30- and 40-somethings, I got down to the business of ordering: No small task, mind you, given there are 180 beers (give or take) on the menu. But here’s what’s so great about this place: Not only is every bartender Cicerone-certified, but on this particular day, two of the Hog’s Cicerones walked me through their beer selection, making particular note of Mississippi’s beloved locals and the most stellar IPAs they had on nitro. I chose from the latter, and one of the bartenders offered up an extra hop-shot: Using a French press, he infused my pint with fresh California hops for a custom brew unlike any I’d had before. Talk about Southern hospitality. –Carolyn Heneghan
