Tallgrass 8-bit

Post by JRBoulevard_KC » February 21st, 2012, 12:57 pm

Have some of the rest of you heard about 8 bit by Tallgrass? This new year round brew (and as always canned) is coming out real soon. It's a galaxy "hop rocketed" pale ale. I think about 50 IBUs. The can design is awesome, a throwback to the regular Nintendo. ill post
a pic later. I've toured that place, great folks and beer. Thoughts?

That's actually pretty cool. I'll check some out as soon as I see it somewhere.

Hadn't hear about this yet! Very excited to try it.

If I remember correctly, Free State's Winterfest also featured Galaxy hops.

Canned beer is the future and Tallgrass is doing it right. I love their art! The only downside of cans is not being able to reuse them for homebrewing.

Agreed. There are many benefits to cans vs bottles.

Barleys OP just tweeted that they were putting 8-Bit on tomorrow, looked like a "launch" type event.

Cans are better than bottles in theory. Some canning breweries have had serious QA struggles. Not sure if it is lack of familiarity with the equipment or just problems with the budget canning lines available now. Just thinking about it, the old double pre-evacuate and FOB should work much better with a bottle than a can due to surface area exposed to air. With the caveat that the beer gets in with low o2 and the caveat that the beer is poured into a glass, I agree cans are better.
