The Story of Hap & Harry’s Beers
Hap Motlow, of the legendary Jack Daniel family from Lynchburg, TN, used to tell his friend Harry Lipman, “To make great whiskey, you gotta make great beer.” As the first distributor of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey after the repeal of prohibition, Harry passed this lesson down through the generations of Lipmans, who still remain in the beverage alcohol business to this day. Hap & Harry’s Tennessee Lager honors the friendship these two men shared over a half century ago. Cheers to great friends and great beer!
Note from “Hap” Motlow that was written inside a book he gave to his good friend Harry Lipman.
