The third collaboration from Boulevard Brewing (Kansas City, MO) is brewed with Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project in Somerville, MA. Pretty Things recently took a road trip over the summer and found themselves in Kansas City. The breweries know each other from various beer festivals.
Stingo is the name of the collaboration, a 17th century English beer style. Why stingo? Dann and Martha Paquette of Pretty Things have a connection to England. Dann brewed in England for years, and Martha was born in Yorkshire. Great idea honestly. So how did it turn out? Boulevard brewmaster Steven Pauwels describes Stingo as:
…bold and full-bodied, with a big malty nose, hints of dark malt, chocolate, licorice, and black fruits, and just the right amount of tartness in the finish. It pairs exceptionally well with wild game, smoked meats, strong cheeses, and heavily seasoned dishes.
Stingo joins Boulevard’s Smokestack Series
