THEY are probably best known for sending teenage girls’ hearts into a flutter but pop group Hanson may be about to have a similar effect on middle-aged men after announcing plans to bring out their own real ale.
The Oklahoma group gave a talk at the Oxford Union on Monday where the audience were treated to some of their tunes and would have been surprised to hear about the boys’ new venture.
The lads are famed for their 1997 track MMMbop – the song X Factor hopeful Janet Devlin forgot the words to – and brothers Taylor, 28, Isaac, 31, and Zac, 26 have used it as the inspiration to name their new beverage, MMMhop, an Indian pale ale due out early next year.
Zac explains: “It’s vital our fans have trust in everything Hanson do. We are soon going to be selling our own beer. I’m not joking – MMMhop IPA anyone?”
