It Helps Me Yell At The Screen: 8-Bit Pale Ale


This is Tallgrass Brewing Company's 8-Bit Pale Ale. What's it have to do with video games besides the name and can design? ZERO. How many am I going to drink? Millions.

Just like those classic video games we all grew up with, 8-Bit Pale Ale is spectacularly simple at first glance yet remarkably fun and complex when you get into it. Our Hop Rocket infuses the character of Austrailian grown Galaxy Hops into an American Pale Ale, giving a unique tropical, almost melon aroma in a classic American style.

ABV: 5.2%
IBU: 40
Malts: 2 Row, Victory, Vienna & Munich
Hops: Magnum, Centennial, Cascade & Galaxy

Admittedly, pale ales are my favorite, but I feel like they should have made it a pilsner. Or -- what's that other kind I like so much? "Whiskey." YES -- they should have made it a whiskey.

Hit the jump for a couple more product shots and a link to the brewery's page where you can see where it's available/request your local vendors carry it.

There are Comments.
  • Great concept and the "box art" looks remarkably similar to the actual 8-bit look. Kudos.

    I go to school at KSU, so I get to go on free tours of Tallgrass and have as many free samples as I want! ALL THE 8-BIT IS MINE!!!

    Seriously though, it's pretty damn good. However, my all-time favorite is Tallgrass' Buffalo Sweat.
