The Tallgrass Brewing Company is located in Manhattan, KS. They have recently brought their canned beers to South Dakota. I grabbed a four pack of Oasis 16 ounce cans for $6.99 at the Brookings Liquor Store. This beer is described by the brewery as “Double ESB/IPAish”.
7.2 % ABV
It poured out deep gold into a pint glass with slight cloudiness. The taste was a little bit stronger on the malt side, but the hops were also prominent (93 IBUs). There was good lacing on the glass. This is an interesting beer and I enjoyed it. It is not a beer for craft beer newbies.
Some of my favorite beers don’t fit easily into style guidelines such as Surly Furious and Grand Teton Pursuit of Hoppiness. Oasis would fit into this category, and I recommend it to people who love both malt and hops. Cheers!
