Has anyone tried these? I saw them in HyVee yesterday and thought about picking up a couple of bottles, but passed. I'll probably go back and buy some, but was curious if anyone else has tried them?

I haven't even heard of them until now.

OTOH, I ordered a Nutcracker (my favorite Blvd brew) from Paddy O's on Saturday. They had their tap head up and everything. What I got was a stout, which I'm not incredibly fond of to begin with. Ruined my palate for the evening, believe it or not.

Interesting - not my style though. I find Tripple's, Quad's, Golden's to be too strong for my taste; unless you are tulry pairing them with a meal. Drinking them for drinking's sake doesn't work for me.

I have a few buddies here that might like that for a Christmas gift - can I buy and then have beer shipped?

I've shipped beer before. Just wrap each bottle individually with bubble wrap and pack the bottles in a box. Leave lots of space between each bottle with plenty of packing material between them.

I had some Nutcracker before the game yesterday. Good stuff!

The website doesn't say where it's available. Do they ship outside the KC area?

Why is the auto-filter doing that?

I doubt they ship it. I saw it in a grocery store in south KC.

North Carolina? You’re screwed.
They only sell in this area, Kansas, Mizzu, Nebraska, Oklahoma….
Maybe if you talk nice to someone from here….. ;)

I’m going to have a talk with the ladies that run the local liquor store and see about ordering some of these. :BLVD:

I'm not a fan of nutcrack-er. It tastes like pinesol to me.

I figured. The Redneck Riviera crowd around here wouldn't like it because the can doesn't say Bud on it. :)

Those are called "hops". They add flavoring and aroma to beer.

I'm a hophead, so the more the better IMO. I'll have to try that double IPA.

I must not like..."the hops", then.

I had the triple. Dang near as good as a Belgiuim Saint Bernardas(sp) and a Delirium but the head on the Boulevard wasn't as foamy or long lasting. Age however does help these beers so I may set a couple aside. Overall the price to taste was a good deal for a triple. For the best moments, I will do the Saint Bernardaus.

I can't wait to try the others.
