Tall grass Big Ricc Russian Imperial Stout
Tallgrass Ginger Peach Saison is being introduced this month, the second new release this year from the Kansas-based brewery’s new facility.
Tallgrass Ginger Peach Saison is exactly how it’s billed, a saison brewed with fresh ginger and peaches.
“We tried several different strains of yeast before arriving at a Belgian strain used in the final recipe,” Brandon Hoag, Tallgrass brewmaster said. “A lot of the flavor comes from the yeast, but it’s the way it interacts with the ginger and peach that makes it slam on the taste buds.”
Tallgrass Ginger Peach Saison is available in 16oz cans as a summer seasonal.

Two years ago, Tallgrass Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat was promoted to big time status. The brewery took Buffalo Sweat, an oatmeal cream stout, and nuanced it with Ugandan vanilla beans.
The result is a creamy chocolate beer with a hint of espresso, turned full on dessert beer.
To create Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat we start with our best selling beer, Buffalo Sweat. We carefully infuse this award- winning oatmeal cream stout with whole Ugandan vanilla beans. This enhances the beer’s natural dark-roasted flavors of espresso, chocolate, and creamy sweetness. “Liquid chocolate chip espresso cookies” is how one fan described its unique flavor.
Tallgrass Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat is available in 16oz cans again for 2014.
Tallgrass Brewing Company (Manhattan, KS) will soon be tripling their brewing capacity. The brewery is acquiring a 60,000 square foot building in their hometown that will be retrofitted into a production facility.
Construction is slated to being in late 2014, and once completed, Tallgrass will be capable of brewing 100,000 barrels per year (3 millions gallons).
“Increasing our production capacity is very exciting. This new and larger facility will give us the space and ability to be a dynamic and creative brewer of not only more beer, but also those specialty and limited edition beers that we’ve been dreaming of making since we started the brewery,” said Jeff Gill, president and founder of Tallgrass.
The Neenan Corporation of Fort Collins, Colorado has been chosen to help with the building conversion. The total cost of expansion will max out around $5 million dollars. Already, the Tallgrass is the largest craft brewer in Kansas at 16,000 barrels produced annually.
In addition to the new brewery, The Tallgrass Taphouse will open in downtown Manhattan, Kansas this year.
