Boulevard Hibiscus Gose debuts in cans in April

Boulevard Hibiscus Gose

Boulevard Hibiscus Gose will debut in cans in April.

This floral gose started as a Boulevard holiday beer years ago, bottled briefly in the brewery’s Backroads Series in 2014. Boulevard Hibiscus Gose is created by adding sea salt during the boiling process, along with coriander. During the whirlpool process, Boulevard infuses the wort with dried hibiscus flowers.

A slightly salty aroma with a touch of coriander and citrus/cherry notes wafts from the beer. The leading flavor is a lemony tartness obtained from the brewhouse souring process with subtle salt and coriander notes. Hibiscus Gose finishes crisp and dry with a slightly lingering sourness that’s tempered by the sea salt, coriander, and hibiscus flowers.

Boulevard Hibiscus Gose debuts in the brewery’s home city of Kansas City, Missouri on April 2nd. Expect 12-ounce cans and draft in the brewery’s other regions shortly after launch.

Style: Gose (Hibiscus, Coriander, Sea Salt)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut (Cans): 4/2/18

4.2% ABV

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose finds bottles for the 1st time

Boulevard Tequila Lime Gose bottles

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose was a hit last year on draft. In 2018 the brewery has bottled the seasonal offering.

In mid-2016, Kansas City-based Boulevard Brewing acquired freshly emptied tequila barrels. After a style debate on what would go into the wood the brewery settled on a German-style gose.

Aged with fresh limes, Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose smells of oak and vanilla. According to Boulevard expect:

…a pleasant, refreshing lactic acidity and hints of coriander and sea salt, citrus flavors mingle with malt sweetness to temper the acidity and touch of heat provided by tequila barrel-aging.

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose is available in 12-ounce bottles and draft across select brewery markets in March 2018.

Style: Gose (w/ Limes. Barrel Aged. Tequila.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Seasonal Release.

Berry heavy Boulevard Jam Band makes a year-round can debut

Boulevard Jam Band Cans

Boulevard Jam Band that was a draft exclusive in the past, is coming to cans. 

This Smokestack Series release is a fruity one. The base beer is created with two-row barley, acidulated malt, and Topaz hops. The “humongous” fruit character (jammy?) comes from blueberry, red raspberry, and tart cherry juice blended at the end of fermentation.

Starting in February, look for Boulevard Jam Band to debut in 12-ounce cans, year-round. The alcohol by volume is a touch lower than its predecessor, now at 5.9% instead of 7%.

Jam Band pours a deep ruby and opens with aromas of dark berries, melon and subtle citrus. Minimal, supporting malt sweetness provides a platform from which blueberry, red raspberry and tart cherry sing resulting in a slightly tart, easy-drinking summer beer that begs for an encore.

Boulevard Jam Band will be available nationally starting in February 2018.

Style: Fruit Beer (w/ Cherry Juice. Raspberry Juice. Blueberry Juice.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Initial Debut: 7/10/17
Can Debut: February 2018

5.9% ABV, 6 IBUs

Boulevard Collaboration 7, created with Creature Comforts & Arizona Wilderness

Boulevard Collaboration 7

Boulevard Collaboration 7 has officially debuted, a collaboration with Athens, Georgia based Creature Comforts and Gilbert, Arizona’s Arizona Wilderness.

This collaborator series has paired seen the likes of Deschutes Brewery, Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, Firestone Walker, Cigar City, Ommegang, and Orval. Boulevard Collaboration 7 is the first time a two breweries have been a part of the project at the same time.

The trio is creating a “juicy” lager for this seventh iteration, aged briefly on virgin oak. Juicy is an understating term, thanks to peach puree, lemon zest and riesling chosen to compliment carefully selected Nelson Sauvin, Lemondrop and Hallertau Blanc hops. The malt bill is quite complex too, brewed with pale malt, Sonoran White Wheat, Missouri wheat, honey malt and corn grits.

The finished beer is bottle conditioned with champagne yeast, producing an effervescent golden lager perfect for the late summer heat. Last year, Arizona Wilderness and Creature Comforts partnered on “Transmission“, a citrus saison.

Boulevard Collaboration 7 is now available in 12 ounce bottles and draft for a limited time.

Boulevard Berliner Weisse joins the brewery’s seasonal lineup

Boulevard Berliner Weisse

Boulevard Berliner Weisse is now available, a part of the brewery’s fall seasonal lineup.

Few beer styles can match the delicate, sparkling character of the classic Berliner Weisse, with its light body and tart palate. It’s said that Napoleon’s troops referred to it as “The Champagne of the North,” high praise for beer, coming from Frenchmen. With Berliner Weisse, we pay tribute to the style, while giving it a distinctively American twist. Bright and thirst-quenching, the beer is enlivened by soft lactic notes.

Boulevard Berliner Weisse is available in 12-ounce bottles and draft, from August to October, 2017.

Style: Berliner Weisse
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Aug-Oct
Debut: August 2017
