Gulfport, MS (Monday, October 6, 2008) – Emeril’s Gulf Coast Fish House and Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company, the first micro-brewer to produce beer made with roasted pecans, team up on Thursday, October 23, to create a five-course dinner paired with five signature Lazy Magnolia brews.

Mark and Leslie Henderson, Lazy Magnolia’s founders, will join guests inside for the four-course seated dinner at 7:00pm, along with the company’s brew masters, who will offer insights into each style of beer and answer questions about the beer making process.
