8-bit Pale Ale… My new favorite retro gaming themed beer!

You’ll notice that the tagline for this site says it covers not just retro game reviews, but culture, too.  There are lots of things that I originally hoped to cover, like books, movies, and music that relate to classic video games.  I never seemed to get around to that part of it, though… But now it’s time, because I want to share something cool.  This last weekend, I was browsing the beer selection at the grocery store, when this caught my eye:

8-bit Pale Ale – Tallgrass Brewing

Now, I like retro games (obviously), and I like beer (duh), so I figured I just had to give it a try.  I thought I might be falling for a gimmick and that it would be mediocre, but much to my delight, it was excellent!  So, now I’m doing my duty to retro gamers and beer lovers everywhere and spreading the word.  If you like your beers a bit hoppy (or at least aren’t afraid of some hops), give it a try.  You won’t regret it.  Personally?  I’ll be buying it regularly!

Check out the beer’s product page, see if it’s distributed in your state, or just enjoy the goofy YouTube promo:
