Selfies with Zac Hanson are Everyone’s Favorite GABF Souvenir

Selfies with Zac Hanson are Everyone’s Favorite GABF Souvenir

The 2016 Great American Beer Festival featured thousands of impressive craft beers, but we guarantee the only thing that rivaled beer’s popularity were selfies with Zac Hanson.

Zac, now 30, is the youngest member of Hanson, the late-90s boy band brother trio responsible for “MMMBop.” He was at the festival representing Oklahoma’s Hanson Brothers Beer Company, which he started along with brothers Isaac and Taylor. (And yes, they have a beer named “MMMHops,” an admittedly brilliant name no matter how you feel about late-90s pop music.)

As much as we love beer — and we love, love craft beer — a celeb sighting at GABF ups the ante, and Zac was kind enough to pose for pretty much a zillion selfies with fans. These are some of our favorite.
