Craft beers are not something that I normally go for. I find them too expensive with little pay off and enjoyment. I do have one or two occasionally, usually around autumn, but craft beers are too boring for my taste. I always found them for people who take beer seriously, but c'mon, I play and write about video games, how serious can I get?
With that said, these awesome 8-bit beers are very appealing. They are made by the Tallgrass Brewing Company and are available to be picked up in their stores, which are in select locations. You can see where they are located by visiting their site.
Here is a description of the beer from their site:
Just like those classic video games we all grew up with, 8-Bit Pale Ale is spectacularly simple at first glance yet remarkably fun and complex when you get into it. Our Hop Rocket infuses the character of Australian grown Galaxy Hops into an American Pale Ale, giving a unique tropical, almost melon aroma in a classic American style.
As you can see, the artwork is awesome on the can. This is one of those few beer cans that you'll actually save and maybe place on a shelf.
Unfortunately there are not any stores by me. So your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to send me one. Tweet me, guys.
YOU MUST BE 21 OR OLDER TO BUY!
Enjoy this fever dream of a video and then tell us what you think of this beer!
