</td></tr></tbody></table> KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The pending purchase of St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch would make a Kansas City beer maker Missouri's largest brewer.

Established in 1989, homegrown Boulevard Brewing Co. has quietly climbed the ranks of the nations largest brewers. The Brewers Association says Boulevard is the eighth-largest domestic craft brewer in the United States. Boulevard beers are now available in 13 states.

Once Belgium-based brewer InBev completes its $52 billion purchase of Anheuser-Busch, Boulevard would take over the No. 1 slot in Missouri brewers.

Anheuser-Busch dwarfs Boulevard in production, brewing 160 million barrels of beer annually compared with the 142,000 barrels Boulevard expects to produce this year. Boulevard production has tripled since 2000.

Yes. In Bev, the parent company, is based in Belgium. So AB is now a limb of a Belgian brewer.

Again, the AB plant is still the largest brewery in the state of MO. But it isn't the largest brewer; In Bev is a Belgium-based brewer. The STL brewery is just a part of the company.

If there was an MillerCoors brewery in Omaha, you wouldn't consider MillerCoors to be principally a Nebraska brewer, would you?

I'd been waiting all week to rub it in with the Bud driver (I work in a liquor store), so yesterday, when he was in the cooler, I snuck in the back and crept up close, then said loudly, "Bon Dieu, mon frere!" I think that means "Good God, my brother!" and not "Good morning, my friend," but the only complete sentence I know in French is "Frappe mon penis, du bastard!" Anyhow, he wouldn't know the difference. The point was to insult him but it turned out even better since he had no idea I was there. He was hunched over, stocking the very bottom shelf and when I said that, he jumped straight up. He said I scared him so bad, when he jumped up he about pulled a hammy! If not for the cooler fans, I'd have probably been able to hear his heart pounding in his chest. ROFL

Only a good thing. Boulevard is one of the best beers in the country.

I'd put them, Walter Payton's Roundhouse Brewery in Aurora, IL, and Sierra Nevada as my top 3.

I visited the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico, CA. GREAT place if you get the chance. Not far from San Francisco or if you're visiting any of the National Parks up in northern California- definately worth making a stop off even if a little out of your destination.

They only sell like 6 or so of their beers at retailers, but have probably 35 different beers at the brewery that you can try. They have a gorgeous restaurant and huge beer garden- which is really like a garden. You can do the sampler, which will let your try like 15-20 of them. Absolutely fantastic beer, and some of the beers are loaded with booze b/c you don't have the same restrictions on alcohol % like you do for mass produced commercial beers. I got pretty f*cked up just off the sampler, and I have a pretty high tolerance and can't usually get even a good buzz if I am just drinking beer after beer.

Walter Payton's is debatable the best beer place I've ever tried. Went there to meet with a few senior attorneys for dinner my 1st time there. (been back a handful of times since)

They have won a couple of European Beer Championships / Medals. They have a Scotch Ale that's a seasonal beer that is Heavenly and packs a punch. If you're ever in Chicago, you can get there by the Metra and the Brewery is right next to the train stop. The express will get ya there in about 35 minutes, and completely worth checking out. Plus, you can pick up a few growlers to take with you.

http://www.walterpaytonsroundhouse.com/content/5.html

It has been said that America's Brewing Company is the epitome to the American Brewing Tradition; not just creating quality, handcrafted, small-batch brews but creating beers that won three consecutive Gold Medals at the World Beer Cup Competitions. In 2000, Payton Pilsner won a Gold Medal as the World's Finest Bohemian Styled Pilsner. Upon receiving his award, Brewmaster Mike Rybinski mention that he had wished Walter Payton (probably the greatest football player of all time and a partner who succumbed to cancer in Nov 1999) had been in attendance. Well, this was World Beer Cup and the majority of the 2,500 people in the room had no idea who Walter was so they consoled Mike by offering their condolences for the passing of "his Brewmaster." Connie said Walter would have enjoyed the story. We believe he is enjoying it.
Mike followed in 2002, with a Gold for Payton Pilsner Light, the finest example of a European Styled Low Alcohol Beer. Beck's Light finished second, with a Silver Medal. In 2004, Mike earned his third consecutive Gold Medal for his Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout. This made America's Brewing Company the first Brewery in the history of World Beer Cup to win 3 consecutive Gold Medals. In 2006, Mike's string was broken when his "Just Call Me George" took a Silver Medal in the catagory of Baltic Porter.
In 2001, Mike received a Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver for his Sweetness Stout. America's Finest Sweet Stout.
You are invited to visit our 7,000 barrel, open air brewery, where you will have the opportunity to watch Brewmaster Mike Rybinski and his staff brew and bottle batches of our award-winning beers.

Guinness, done right, is a beautiful thing. :D

The Double Wide IPA is an Imperial. If you like IPAs, you'll definitely enjoy Boulevard's Double. Be warned: it is STRONG.

If you like double & triple ales, the Smokestack series is for you. I tried them all and loved every one of them. The Double Wide was simply the best IMO.

Their triple ale is called Long Strange Triple. The quadruple, which will knock most people on their ass before the bottle is done, is called Sixth Glass.

There is also a sazion called Saizon, but I found it to be no more than a Chimay clone (and I'm not a big fan of Chimay; it's okay, but vastly overrated IMO)

Funny, for me the Sixth Glass was the best by far. Absolutely loved it and it's high gravity too. The Long Strange Triple was pretty good but if you want a good triple I stick with New Belgium's Trippel Ale...it's cheaper and better and about 7.9% alcohol by volume!
