Prairie Artisan Ales, Dad Bod (Exclusive???)… 4.5/5
I went to the Prairie Brewpub, downtown Tulsa, for a business meeting. You can see my review of the Brewpub by clicking here. While there I picked out a couple of beers to drink. I would have probably had more, but time was short. The first beer I had was the Dad Bod (reviewed here) and the second the Prairie Ale (review to come). The Dad Bod is Prairie’s Belgian IPA. I found that the beer fits the Belgian IPA style.
OK, a first for me… The Dad Bod is a new beer. At the time of this writing there are only 88 check-ins for the beer on Untappd and all of them have been at the Brewpub. So I would say this is a house beer for now. It was not advertised as such, but after the little research I have done I am so happy that I selected to drink it. The first post on Untappd for this beer was on June 10, 2016. I had it on the 13th. Woot!!!!
As for information from the Brewery? I only have what is printed on the menu. “Prairie Artisan Ales Dad Bod, Belgian IPA, Tulsa OK”
I could not find anything else on Prairie Artisan Ales’ website. If I find that the beer has been added to their site I will update this review. (Let me know if they need a Social Media Dude… I have availability.) Of course anyone with more reliable information on this beer please comment and share with the rest of us. I didn’t know it’s status when I ordered and did not quiz Andi, my server. I wish I had been a little more inquisitive now.
The beer has a deep golden color with a clear white head. There was good lacing on the glass from the head during drinking. The first nose hit I got off of the beer was the sour/tang smell of yeast. As expected when picking up a beer listed as a Belgium. Then a hit off of the hops.
The first taste gave a sharp tang from the yeast and then the hops kicked in giving a slight dry finish. The taste very much matches the nose. There was very little malt taste to me. Throughout the drink there was good carbonation. The mouth feel was full with strong flavors, making this one of my new favorite beers.
I like this beer. It is one that I would drink over and over. If it is on tap at the Brewpub when I make it back there I will probably drink it over and over. I give it a 4.5 out of 5 on my drink-ability scale. This is a good beer that was a bit unique to drink and hope to see stand the test of time.
So if you get to the Brewpub, relax, sit back and have ABigBeer of Dad Bod.
