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.

StyleLager (w/ Riesling Juice, Peach Puree, Lemon Zest. Oak Aged.)

Birds Fly South Skin & Bone, a collaboration with Tarpon Springs, Florida’s Saint Somewhere Brewing Company.

This beer was originally one of the first offerings by Birds Fly South Ale Project, based in Greenville, South Carolina. between the first release and this month’s returns, the brewery has opened a beautiful, wood heavy tap room in the city’s West End Water Tower District.

Skin & Bone is one of the best releases in the brewery’s budding arsenal. This beer hits on all the notes you chase in wild ales – tart, funk and funk. Each sip finishes with mellow hints of the chardonnay barrels. Looking back over 2016, Skin & Bone was easily one of the best new beers we tried. Definitely don’t miss this second round.

Odell Pryus & Prunus

Odell Pryus & Prunus Pear & Peach Sour is destined for the brewery’s Cellar Series this year.

Pryus & Prunus is an oak aged sour golden ale brewed with heavy additions of pear and peach puree resulting in a full bodied, pleasantly effervescent, refreshingly tart ale. The two fruits work in harmony, as aromas of peach pie and fresh pear swirl from the glass. The tart complexity of the sour blonde marries with rip fruit flavors that burst forth with every sip. Enjoy.

Avery Perzik Saison returns for another sunny season

Avery Perzik Saison

Avery Perzik Saison is back in cans ahead of the warmer weather.

“Perzik” is dutch for peach, and in this beer, the peach is the start. The Colorado brewery uses over 11 pounds of peaches per barrel, making this full of aroma and flavor.

This saison tastes like sitting in the hammock in your backyard during the summer. The peaches taste fresh, the beer finishes clean, and the esters of the yeast really compliment the whole package.

“We started making Perzik Saison two years ago, and we designed it to be a delicious, easy drinking, and sessionable beer. It has a massive amount of peaches, but our goal was to also stay true to the saison style. We ferment warm at 26 degrees Celsius, which builds a great yeast character that pairs well with the peaches.” – Fred Rizzo, Head Brewer

Avery Perzik Saison can be found nationally once again starting in April, 2017.

Style: Saison (w/ Peaches.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. April-August
