Tallgrass Ale

Newer Older

Another shipment of my Microbeer of the month came in yesterday. This one is from the Tallgrass Brewing Company in Manhattan, Kasas. It is delicious!


Tallgrass Ale is the flagship beer of Tallgrass Brewing Company, and we think it will be your new favorite beer! Truly a craft beer, the recipe was first brewed by Jeff as a 10-gallon batch of homebrew. Of all his homebrew recipes, Jeff chose Tallgrass Ale as the flagship beer because of the beer’s surprising light body, extraordinarily smooth and balanced profile, great taste, and clean finish. The first time Jeff brewed Tallgrass Ale he thought it looked a little too dark, but after he kegged that first batch, the finished beer was really, really tasty! That first little 10-gallon batch of Tallgrass was gone way too fast!

The beer was different from anything he or his friends could find on tap or on the shelf. It was a beer that was a deep chestnut color, yet had a great flavor and was so light tasting that it kept you wanting more. The distinctive look and taste of Tallgrass Ale comes from our unique blend of German, English, and American-style malts and a generous helping of both American and traditional English hops. These ingredients, our English brewer’s yeast, and the Flint Hills’ excellent brewing water gives Tallgrass Ale a distinctive, toffee-highlighted taste and smooth profile that is always drinkable.

Tallgrass Ale is available on tap and in bottles in bars and restaurants throughout Kansas, so try it at your favorite local bar. If they don’t have it, ask for it! Or, you can stop by our brewery in Manhattan and buy some for yourself after a tour and a free sample!

    Well you could always hassle your distributor... or set up and underground illegal beer running operation. Either way, good luck! Merry Christmas and a Hoppy New Year from all of us at Tallgrass!
