It may come as a shock to some fans that  the former child rockers Hanson are old enough to drink. However the singers of the 1997 hit “MMMBop” have just announced that not only do they have a new album coming out, but they are also releasing a beer, the aptly-named Mmmhops.

The Hanson brothers – Isaac, 32, Taylor, 30 and Zac, 27  – introduced their new quaff by giving a taste to those attending last week’s Los Angeles premiere of The Hangover Part III. The group’s best-known single, the insanely catchy Grammy-nominated classic “MMMBop,” is featured in the movie and clearly inspired the Imperial Pale Ale’s name.

The boy band’s beer was brewed in partnership with Oklahoma craft beer company, Mustang Brewing, but won’t be available for drinking until later this fall when the band hits the road on the Anthem World Tour in support of its forthcoming ninth album. However, the brothers have released Mmmhops-related merchandise on their website. The band moved up its beer-swag release plans in response to the devastating tornadoes in the brothers’ home state of Oklahoma. The proceeds from the Mmmhops merchandise will be donated to the Red Cross to aid in the Oklahoma tornado relief efforts.

Their sixth studio album, Anthem, is due June 18.

Hanson was not a 'boy band'. They have been touring and releasing albums this while time so are not making a comeback of any kind. And of course they are old enough to drink because they, like their fans, have grown up since 1997!

Also, Hanson's fans would not be shocked to find out that the guys are old enough to drink.  We're all in their age group, so it's pretty obvious.  Not to mention, it's not 1997 anymore, or didn't you get the memo?

Read the headline.  Rolled my eyes.  Read the first line.  Stopped reading.


You are incredibly misinformed and have no concept of the passage of time and aging.

They aren't as popular as they once were, but Hanson isn't making a come back...they never left. Many people would be surprised to know that they have been rocking out for years!
