About Prairie Artisan Ales:

Prairie Artisan Ales create simple memorable and innovative brews based off of well-known styles that have grown complacent. Prairie Artisan Ales have become known for their surreal take on the label and bold use of flavors. The unspoken understanding of enjoying a Prairie brew is just that. Always enjoy, it’s all about pushing the limits of experience to squeeze the most out of a traditional style. Prairie Artisan Ales experiment with varied styles, ranging from the farmhouse ale, unbelievable sours, and ever-evolving stouts. Prairie is best known for their Prairie Bomb!. With spices of coffee beans, cacao nibs, chili peppers, and vanilla beans, Prairie Bomb! captures what it means to be a Prairie brew. The mix is immediately recognizable in its strong approach, but blended together in a way that lends itself to multiple interpretations. This is how our best loved brew has become a staple and an inspiration for many of Prairie Artisan Ales special releases.
