The place was easy enough to find, but their sign put way more emphasis on the fact that they serve Angus Beef than Craft Brewed beer.

The atmosphere is comfortable and not pretentious at all. They have a bunch of old beer cans on shelves and all the mason jars of their mug club on the walls. Didn't notice any smoke, but we were there at a really slow time of day.

Walked in, sat down, server came over promptly and asked what we wanted to drink. I asked "What do you have that's Cask Conditioned?" He looked at me like I had three ears. "You know, cask beer?" He says "We have beer...", I say "hand pumped?" His response: "I think our beer is pumped with CO2..."

Fine, so it's Monday at 2pm. Not exactly the A-squad. This dude was clearly just punching the clock. They had 5 regular brews and 3 seasonals on tap. I ordered a Prairie Pale Ale (which is described on the menu as both a Pale and an IPA...). It's pretty darn good, especially for being the first beer I've had since leaving Denver. Definitely a Pale, not an IPA. Well balanced and really hit the spot. Handled that one, ordered an American Amber- now this is a beer I could session. Again, balanced and representing the style well. Next was the Red (which the menu also calls a Dorchester Altbier). This was my favorite of the three I tried. Munich malts were noticeably forward. Overall, the beer was great, the price was right and the food was mediocre (I wasn't there to try food though, so...)

A nice brewpub in central Kansas. As part of my travels, I scout out the local microbreweries. This one did not disappoint. I visited on 20 JAN 10. A beer sampler is available at a reasonable price. The "flight" of beers was presented on a placemat with descriptions of the breweries standard beers, a practice I have grown to appreciate as I sample. The sampler included the current seasonal on tap which was a boysenberry wheat. Delicious. Take home options are available from growlers to kegs. The food compliments the beers. If travelling along I-70 through central Kansas, make the trip into Manhattan and enjoy.

We stopped by the brewery on a Friday afternoon. We tried the sampler beers which included the Prairie Pale Ale, Wild Cat Wheat, Riley’s Red Ale, Bison Brown Ale, and the Black Angus Stout. The Prairie Pale Ale was the hoppiest at 62 IBUs so it got my vote for the best. While all the beers were good, nothing stood out to me as exceptional. The place was crowded so the locals enjoy the beer. We had an appetizer that was typical brewpub fare. It was hot outside that day, and almost as hot inside. Because of the heat and smoky atmosphere we didn’t stay too long.

Located in the hometown of Kansas State University and near Fort Riley, the Little Apple is a fairly small, locally owned brew pub. There are usually 5 to 6 regular brews available with 1 or 2 limited items. There is a mug club available and there is an annual contest for "Beer Drinker of the Year". Special events are offered for mug club members such as Octoberfest and New Year's events. Regular beers range from Prairie Pale Ale to Black Angus Stout. The menu is extensive and specializes in Angus steaks. The hops shortage has had some effect and some of the beers have changed somewhat as a result.
