Boulevard Brewing (Kansas City, MO) is collaborating with Deschutes Brewing (Bend, OR). This summer the world will meet “White IPA.” Interestingly enough, this beer doesn’t involve travelling to each other’s breweries. White IPA is based off a single shared recipe, becoming unique as each brewery produces it. Boulevard specializes in Belgian style witbiers, while Deschutes loves the hops. Both breweries will release this beer under their own labels.
From the Sales Sheet For White IPA:
Despite the beers’ shared recipe, each of the two versions will develop a distinct, unique identity, to be reflected in their naming and packaging. Boulevard’s half of the equation, christened Collaboration No. 2, will be distributed throughout their 20-state region in kegs and 750ml bottles, as part of the Smokestack Series seasonal lineup. Brewed at their Bend, Oregon facility, Deschutes’ effort will be the second beer in their new Conflux collaboration series, and will be distributed throughout their 18-state region in kegs and 22-ounce bottles.
Availability: 750ml Bottles, Draft. All regions where Boulevard & Deschutes is distributed.
Deschutes Brewing will be distributed in Missouri soon. June – July launch date.
