Raspberry Sweat

Tallgrass has come a long way in a short time. They went from being a brewer whose products I didn't enjoy and ridiculed a little bit, to one that surprised me with a beer to a brewer I look forward to trying new things from. Buffalo Sweat is probably a beer I need to give another shot. But, what I really want to try is the Buffalo Sweat with raspberries and vanilla. It's like they made a beer just for me, but even though I asked, they're not bringing it over to my house.

Old Chicago in Olathe will be tapping a firkin of Buffalo Sweat with raspberries and vanilla tonight at 6. If you're lucky they may still have some Tallgrass Velvet Rooster, a Tripel that is exclusive to Old Chicago. Otherwise, you'll just have to try the Rooster at Hop Fest. In any case, this might be the first time all year you should spend a Friday night in Olathe.

  1. The first time I tried Buffalo Sweat, I too was underwhelmed. But I think that may have something to do with the excess (or not) of imperial stouts that we are exposed to. Going back to Buffalo Sweat and looking at it like a session stout (like Free State's oatmeal), I found that it was pretty interesting to see such dark flavors and creamy feel in such a light beer.
