Hanson

We’re Going Into the Beer Biz

... MMMHop Anyone?!

11/30/2011 1:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hanson Brothers brewing beer... MMMHop
Still looking for that elusive follow-up hit to the ‘90s smash single “MMMBop” -- former boy band Hanson is now turning  to booze … in the form of a new beer they’re calling “MMMHop” … this according to drummer Zac.

According to reports, Zac made the announcement during an event at Oxford University this week … telling the crowd, “We are soon going to be selling our own beer … I’m not joking – MMMhop IPA anyone?”

Through a rep, Zac tells TMZ, "Yes a branded HANSON IPA beer concept is in the works under the moniker 'MmmHops.' We're glad to see a bit of buzz around the idea, which has been brewing for some time."

In the meantime, it's been 14 years since MMMBop came out -- feel old yet?

Wouldn't be shocked if this was a joke or even if it wasnt, you never know with zac! Either way, before hating maybe people should listen to the 4 studio albums, christmas album, live abums, best of album, do***entary, etc they've done since the '97 album. Now they are indie and have their own record label and a charity. They have a very loyal following and a lot of people that are new listeners. Its easy to hate, but why not check out the music... its speak for itself! www.hanson.net

Actually, TMZ, Hanson has done fine for themselves. Just because they haven't.been arrested for DUI or made porn, er, I mean "sex tapes" that doesn't mean they aren't famous. It just means they haven't stooped low enough for TMZ's "fame" standards.

Tinted Windows. Tinted Windows. Taylor Hanson from Hanson, James Iha from Smashing Pumpkins, Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, and Bun E Carlos from Cheap Trick. Superior pop music. Try it, you'll thank me.

This is the first time I've heard "feel old yet" and thought, "no, 14 years isn't that long ago." Yep, officially old!

I'm a huge Hanson fan. Yes, mmmbop was pretty stupid, but no more stupid than the other crap kids that age listen to now. LMFAO? Kesha? Even Katy Perry's songs are about 99% asinine, though she's fun tabloid fodder. All pre-teens go through phases with their music, but Hanson has definitely weathered the storm. They still have a huge loyal following, they record all their albums through their own independent label (albums that still make billboard charts), they have families and keep out of the media nonsense (sorry they don't make you any cash TMZ)--all while playing a variety of instruments and writing all their own material. They've come a long way.

Not to mention home brewing is a hobby that is exploding in popularity. If they're into trying it, why not? I'll drink an mmmbeer. :)

Any real Hanson fan would 99% think this is false. If Hanson ever made a beer, they would never call it that. TMZ you really found this joke newsworthy? I visit this site every day and LOVE Hanson but confirm some stuff before you post it. Did you really think they started a beer, really?

Maybe drinking lots of Hanson brew might make their music sound better.
