A Note on This Beer
There’s a rumblin’ sweeping across the plains of America’s heartland, and I’m not talking about a bison stampede. Nope, that distant vibration is the sound of thousands of craft fiends marching across Oklahoma on their way to Prairie Artisan Ales.
Today’s Lil’ Nap Sour Ale with Blackberries and Lime is the beer that triggered this migration. The Instagram post that announced the release of this refreshingly fruity spring brew got over 1,600 likes in the first 24 hours, and the comments are crowded with people begging for a sip. Fans are not napping on Lil Nap.
That’s how beloved the 4.23 BA-rated Prairie is. If you’ve been into craft beer for a while, there’s a good chance you’re already a fan (a fan who doesn’t have to beg on social media because we’ve got you covered.)
Lots of folks know these guys for their massively rated Bomb! series of Stouts. What you might not know is Prairie started out making Sours and Saisons, and those are still the styles they love most.
Head brewer Chase Healey even gets a little poetic about the Sour making process: “Things tend to come together a bit more organically. It’s much less structured, for better or worse, but that’s how my mind operates.”
We love the way your mind works, Chase. Just keep creating incredible beers like Lil’ Nap!
Open the can and berry aromas come tumbling out on a wave of tart lime. There’s a slight pucker on the tongue, like sipping berry infused limeade, but better because it’s got a 6% ABV. Once the pucker fades it's just easy drinking, sunny day delight with more berries carrying you to an ultra-smooth finish.
If you’re already a Prairie fan, you just gotta try this tart refresher! And if you haven’t yet been introduced to these craft masters this is a great way to start. So next time you have a sunny afternoon free, kick back, relax, and have yourself a Lil’ Nap.
Just be careful if you hear a distant rumblin’. It could be a thirsty herd of craft fiends coming to raid your stash!
This beer is too new for ratings!
