Tallgrass Brewing Updates

tallgrassI just received the following email from Tallgrass Brewing Company with some release informations. It looks like Zombie Monkey is returning soon at it’s going to join their year round portfolio. Here’s more info:

tallgrassZombie Monkie Returns, With a Twist…
The annual release of Zombie Monkie imminent! Sporting a fresh look with the same textured tactical grip, this robust porter will start hitting markets the next several weeks.
As the Zombie Monkie fanbase has continued to grow, it has become apparent that this combination of world-class beer and strong brand with a fun backstory carries greater potential than being a seasonal release. As a result, Zombie Monkie will become part of the Tallgrass year-round portfolio beginning this year.

Next up in the Explorer Series is the Flyin’ Hawaiian, an 8.4% double IPA with pineapple slated to ship to wholesalers August-October. 
The Flyin’ Hawaiian is brewed with Nugget hops to provide earthy and pine notes, while the interplay of Pacific Gem and Falconer’s Flight hops creates notes of citrus, dark berries and tropical fruit. 
A burst of fresh pineapple purée enhances the hops with an extra layer of tropical sweetness, and the simple malt bill of 2-Row, C40 and Cara-Pils allows the hops to shine and erupt with tropical citrus flavors. 
Why the Flyin’ Hawaiian? The name was first used for one of our cellarmen’s cask beers. When our founder caught wind of the name, it was just too good to not slap on a can, and it had to be appropriated for our brewmaster’s new double IPA.
Available in 16 oz. 4-packs, 1/2 bbl and 1/6 bbl kegs, this brand also marks the transition of Explorer Series beers from 12 oz. 4-packs to 16 oz. 4-packs. All Explorer Series beers will be packaged in 16 oz. 4-packs moving forward.

A Post-Apocalyptic Porter from Tallgrass Brewing Co.

Tallgrass Brewing Company is fearless when it comes to branding their beers, like Buffalo Sweat, Ethos, Velvet Rooster, and 8-Bit Pale Ale. Their newest beer is no exception and embraces the zombie-mania sweeping the country.

Zombie Monkie: A Post-Apocalyptic Robust Porter, the latest seasonal offering from the Midwest brewery, will begin rolling out to selected markets the week of September 23rd.

The new beer will be equipped with the world’s first textured “Tactical Grip” on the side of the can. This feature ensures that drinkers keep a steady grip on the beer as they flee from infected primates.

While the name of the beer and the design of the can are all about the undead, what’s inside the can is completely alive with character.

“We have been talking about brewing a porter since we started the brewery in 2007, but it had to be something special and this is it,” said Tallgrass Founder, Jeff Gill.

Zombie Monkie is brewed with a chocolatey combination of roasted and kilned malts. This gives the beer a full body with lots of chocolate and espresso-like flavors. Bravo, Willamette, and Nugget hops add hints of floral and citrus to finish off this complex porter.

“I dreamed this beer into existence,” said Tallgrass Brewmaster, Andrew Hood. “I dreamed I was drinking a beer in a post-apocalyptic landscape. The beer was dark and delicious, the kind you want for the end of days. It was also interesting and robust, which is good, because it might be your last. That’s Zombie Monkie, the perfect beer for toasting the end of humanity.”
