A true drinking game

8-Bit Pale Ale

Culture By Photo by Tallgrass Brewing

In hindsight, it completely makes sense that craft brewers like video games. In fact, what guy doesn’t like beer and video games (you productive types don’t count). To that end, Kansas’ Tallgrass Brewing Company, known for packaging their entire selection of beer in 1 PINT aluminum cans, has released 8-Bit Pale Ale. Based on customer response to the question of what they should brew next, the 5.2% ABV beer incorporates an army of hops including magnum, centennial, cascade, and even “galaxy” varieties into an American Pale Ale. The end result is a what Tallgrass describes as “a unique tropical, almost melon aroma.” Right…

Combine it with a bottle of 8 Bit vintners Player 1 Syrah and your nerd-themed party bar will be decked to the nines.

Editor’s Note: Consuming a four pack all on your own will not result in an extra life. But if you can’t get the gaming itch out of your head, check out the 8-Bit Pale Ale “the game” video after the break.
