Boulevard Tasting Room Rosemary IPA joins Sample Twelve

Boulevard Tasting Room Rosemary IPA

Boulevard Tasting Room Rosemary IPA joins the brewery’s Tasting Room Series this fall.

As the name suggests, the Tasting Room Series got its start in Boulevard’s Kansas City, Missouri Tasting Room. A selection of test batches, one-offs and other experiments that could one day be a full production brew.

Some of the beers are so well received in the Tasting Room, they get a small promotion to the brewery’s Sample Twelve Mixed Pack, that does see distribution. This fall, Boulevard Tasting Room Rosemary IPA is a part of that pack.

Inspired by a beer from Cerveza Granizo tasted during a judging session in Chile, Boulevard Brewmaster Steven Pauwels became intrigued with the idea of using rosemary in a hop forward beer to explore the interaction between bright herbaceous/savory flavors and punchy/fruity hops.

You can taste the result yourself in the fall Sample Twelve Pack, that ships to all Boulevard markets. Boulevard Tasting Room Rosemary IPA is a 12 ounce bottle release, joined by a new Milk Stout in the box.
