The original Tallgrass beer, Pub Ale was created by founder Jeff Gill during a homebrew session in which he discovered he was missing some of the ingredients needed for a recipe. A new recipe was written on the spot and Pub Ale was born. Pub Ale is a rich, mild and smooth English brown ale, with a lightly sweet, toasty and nutty flavor with hints of caramel and molasses.
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 in bars and restaurants throughout our distribution area, 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!
