Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat beer

One of my favorite things about traveling is discovering new indigenous treasures, things I can only find in that place and in no other.

The problem with that, of course, is that you can only find those things in the one place.

While hanging out with the in-laws in Missouri, we had lunch one afternoon in a local pub and I discovered Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat.

Tallgrass Brewing Company is based in Kansas, and their Buffalo Sweat is one of the best dark stouts I've ever tasted. Sweet, creamy, not bitter in the finish like Guinness can be.

Their beers are available through a wide swath of the Midwest, as far east as Alabama, but naturally not anywhere near my part of the world. Shame. Make an effort to find and drink some, if you're in their part of the world.

  1. They recently released a pale ale called 8-Bit that is excellent. Next time your in the area, you must give it a try. Velvet Rooster is another fine beverage.
