Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad (BBQ)

March 10, 2010 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Boulevard, Country: America, Grade: A regular, Style: Quadrupel

11.8% ABV from a 750 mL corked and caged (#5517/11248) I’ve become a big enthusiast of Boulevard’s terrific Smokestack series over the last year or so, and being a completest in all I do, I of course have wanted to try them all and anxiously wait each new release (these boys at Boulevard seem to […]

Boulevard Smokestacks

In late-1800’s New York City, the top spectator sport at bars was dog versus rat fights.  This replaced the previously most popular sport, a man in heavy work boots trying to stomp out one-hundred rats as fast as he could.  Which, replaced the previously most enjoyed sport:  bear wrestling.  Yeah, the New York bar scene […]

Boulevard Saison-Brett

8.5% ABV bottled (#08516 of 11925) Boulevard hadn’t really impressed me in the past, especially on a last summer trip to Kansas City, but their highly acclaimed Smokestack Series would surely change all that.  My friend Taco Town Dave was visiting from Oklahoma and he asked if there was anything local I’d like.  “Any and […]

Boulevard Lunar Ale

4.5% ABV bottle-conditioned sixer My stay in Kansas was never to end! We’d only been there for a mere 15 hours and it felt like an eternity. If you want to become immortal, just move to Kansas and your life will never end. We woke up at 7 AM on Saturday to get an early […]

Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat

4.6% ABV on draught Being arrogant New Yorkers and Yankees and Mets fans, we figured we could show up at a lackluster Royals game a few minutes before first pitch, hand over a sawbuck, and be sitting behind the plate within minutes. I am still surprised at how wrong we were. The drive from Arthur […]

Boulevard Pale Ale

4.9% ABV from a pitcher Our trip to Kansas (beginning of course in Missouri) started off well. A brief flight on the impressive regional Midwest Airlines (first class seats and fresh-baked cookies for everyone!) before landing at the comically miniscule Kansas City International airport where the pilot hit the trunk pop button and we retrieved […]
