Pub Ale Brewed by Tallgrass Brewing Company - Kansas


Pub Ale Brewed by Tallgrass Brewing Company - Manhattan, Kansas

Back then we called it "Tallgrass Ale" (clever name, right?), and it was the first beer ever brewed by Tallgrass Brewing Company. Unfortunately, there were other beers to brew and our firstborn, Ale, became the forgotten child, but the Ale fans would not let it go gently into that dying light of forgotten beers. This ale has returned as Pub Ale. Different can, exact same beer inside. We haven't changed a thing. We promise. Drink a pint and be the judge. It is the same rich brown ale that we poured back in 2007. Mild and tasty with hints of carmel and chocolate.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance - Reddish brown with bright ruby highlights and high clarity. Pours with a thin, light tan head which has fair retention.

Aroma - Chocolate malt and breadcrusts up front, with a slight vanilla sweetness. The soft, dark malt profile ranges from bread, to toast, to light roast and chocolate, and a dab of caramel to top it off. Not much in terms of hops or esters, but the malt profile is quite nice.

Flavor - Smooth chocolatey malt and baked bread mingle with toast and caramel on the palate. A light, soft vanilla note in the mid-palate adds a nice note of complexity to the malt profile. The finish is dominated by toasted malt with a dusting of cocoa powder and a faint grassy hop character with low hop bitterness to balance the malt. Finishes moderately dry.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with soft, moderately low carbonation. Smooth and almost a little creamy.

Overall - -An awesome, sessionable brown ale from tallgrass bursting with awesome malt character. Did I mention that it's a full pint and it comes in a can? Portable, sessionable, and delicious-what more could you ask for?

The Story Behind Tallgrass Brewing
The decision to found Tallgrass Brewing Company was made by Jeff Gill and his wife Tricia on April 8, 2006. Tricia had asked Jeff THAT question: “What do you want to do with the rest of your life?” Jeff had been thinking about that exact question quite a bit. “I want to start a microbrewery!” Jeff answered. He had been an avid homebrewer for six years and loved to brew beer that people enjoyed. At that point, he and Tricia made a commitment to start a new microbrewery in Kansas. It would mean moving from where they lived at the time, Jeff giving up his career as geologist, and Tricia changing jobs.

After the decision was made, the next 12 months were a flurry of activity: Jeff juggled a full-time job while trying to gain as much experience in the craft beer business as possible, and Tricia gave him her full support along the way. They chose Manhattan, Kan., for the location of the brewery, and chose Tallgrass for the name. They had always wanted to settle in this area to raise their family and live near the scenic Flint Hills and Tallgrass Prairie surrounding Manhattan. It just so happened that the water near Manhattan is an excellent choice for brewing beer, too!

When the spring of 2007 rolled around, Jeff was ready to speak with friends and family about investing in their dream to start Tallgrass Brewing Company. With the money raised and a lot of hard work, the brewery was built just off of Green Valley Road at the edge of the Flint Hills. A beautiful copper-clad brewhouse arrived in June 2007 and the first beer was brewed in August 2007. Our beer is now available on tap and in cans across the Midwest, Mississippi, Minnesota, and more to come!
