Weekly Bar Buzz

Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat fans have the opportunity to try two different firkins of Kansas' native Milk Stout next week. Though they have released several that peaked my interest, I have never had the pleasure of enjoying a Tallgrass Firkin.  Anyone care to share their experiences?

Two Jokers makes a quiet return in April.  No, the brand has not been resurrected, but it looks like Boulevard is pulling a few bottles of tart deliciousness from its stash for a beer dinner at story in Prairie Village.  So if your jonesing for a Two Jokers fix, now's your chance.  

Finally, I know Waldo Pizza tapped more Hoptimium on Saturday, has anyone else heard about Hoptimum on tap around town?

  1. Had both the Buffalo Sweat and the Blushing Hop Cone. Both were excellent.

  2. I had a pint of their Cocoa Rose at Old Chicago. I didn't particularly care for it. Maybe I just need to adjust my palate to such low carbonation.

  3. I've had Buffalo Sex. Wonder how much the difference is with the coconut. You could barely taste the cherry in the Buffalo Sex, it was good though.

  4. Had the Blushing Hop Cone at Barley's a few weeks back. The thought of a strawberry-vanilla IPA was just intriguing enough to make me stop in on my way home. I was actually extremely pleased with it. The strawberry was kind of in the background, but the vanilla played off the hops surprisingly well. Had a second pint as soon as I finished the first.
