Boulevard on New Silver Anniversary Release [VIDEO]

Boulevard Brewing Co. (Kansas City, MO) has just released Silver Anniversary, a collaboration and celebration with Odell Brewing Company. The brewery’s shipped their first kegs a day a part.

The two breweries came together to make a strong ESB, at 7.5% ABV. John McDonald laments in the video above,  Boulevard’s is maltier, and Odell’s is a little hoppier.

Cheers to Odell & Boulevard on 25 years of craft brewing.

Left Hand Sawtooth is Field Assistant

This year, the 125 anniversary meeting is being held in Denver, Colorado. Thus, the inspiration for the Field Assistant Ale. FA is actually Sawtooth Ale rebranded as a celebratory label. Most likely a one off change.

21st Amendment Adds Draft Only Imperial Jack

Here’s a story about a brewery, a pub regular, a homebrew collaboration, and a kindly English grandfather.

Actually the Cliffnotes version: 21st Amendment is brewing Imperial Jack, an ESB, using a recipe they’ve collaborated with a pub regular/ homebrewer Richard Brewer-Hay. The brew was originally called Grandpa Jack in honor of Richards’s late grandfather, both of whom are from England. Richard and 21st Amendment’s Shaun O’Sullivan came together to make a stronger version, Imperial Jack, and will be traveling back to England together to brew it.

Style: Extra Special Bitter
Availability: Draft

8.5% ABV
