Here’s How to Make a Gin and Craft Beer Hybrid Cocktail

We worked with Hendrick’s Gin to develop this exclusive cocktail just for our loyal MenStuff readers!

Next to deciding who’s tougher, Chuck Norris or Bruce Lee, one of the hardest decisions we have to make as men is deciding whether to order a beer or gin. But what about having both?

In an effort to create something truly unique that speaks to the modern man (and to solve the aforementioned problem), MenStuff teamed up with Hendrick’s Gin to craft a one-of-a-kind cocktail: the MOB.

The MOB (Most Out-of-the-Ordinary beer) is MenStuff and Hendrick’s Gin’s very-own baby, with the father and mother being gin and weiss craft beer. We gave some of our lucky loyal readers the chance to preview the MOB at an exclusive tasting held at Asoka in Cape Town, and the response was pretty amazing, to say the least.
