All year-round, seasonal, and limited-release Smokestack Series beers will be available, some in 750ml bottles and others in 12-ounce four-packs. Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale will also be sold in five-gallon kegs, providing bars and restaurants the opportunity to serve a domestically produced Belgian Saison-style beer on tap. Boulevard will be widely distributed throughout Boston, and will be marketed statewide through the Massachusetts Beverage Alliance (MBA).

Boulevard Brewing Company, one of the largest craft brewers in the Midwest, is preparing to dip its toes into the Atlantic, with a September rollout planned for the state of Massachusetts. Boulevard has enjoyed success in the Pacific Northwest, and seeks to balance the geographic scales by introducing the brewery’s Smokestack Series – a line of small-batch artisan beers – to part of the Northeast.


“Adding an East Coast market to our distribution portfolio is a big step for the brewery,” said John McDonald, Boulevard founder and president. “The craft beer movement in New England continues to gain momentum, and we are eager to see how our brands will play in that part of the country.”

All year-round, seasonal, and limited-release Smokestack Series beers will be available, some in 750ml bottles and others in 12-ounce four-packs. Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale will also be sold in five-gallon kegs, providing bars and restaurants the opportunity to serve a domestically produced Belgian Saison-style beer on tap. Boulevard will be widely distributed throughout Boston, and will be marketed statewide through the Massachusetts Beverage Alliance (MBA).

“We are very excited that Boulevard Brewing Company has chosen us to represent their brands,” said Bill Burke, president of Burke Distributing of Boston. “They are the first supplier to sign on with MBA, our recently formed distributor network, and we are fully committed to their success. Working with an organization like Boulevard, known for their integrity as well as their fine beer, is a real honor for us, and we look forward to a long relationship.”

While Boulevard looks east, back home in Kansas City the company is set to embark on another brewery expansion in October. A six-month, $3 million project will remove six original 105-barrel fermentation tanks, replacing them with eight 300-barrel vessels built in neighboring Springfield, Missouri. Upon completion, Boulevard’s annual fermentation capacity will jump by approximately 20 percent, to wellover 200,000 barrels per year.

If anyone has a chance to try the 80-Acre, give it a shot.

I'm not a real big fan of the overly hoppy beers (IPAs suck ass), but this is a dry hops aging process that gives it a nice crisp flavor - really strong stuff.

80-Acre is outstanding. I'm also a big IPA fan though.

I'm a huge fan of pretty much everything Boulevard makes. The Single wide IPA, Tank 7, and I can't remember what the name of it was, but the Belgian Dubbel that they make is awesome too.

Not getting the math here.
6x105=630 barrels
8x300=2400 barrels.

That's only a 20% increase?

Nevermind, I read it as they only had 6 original tanks. They obviously must have a lot more and are just swapping those ones out.

I am bringing 2 kinds of Alaskan beer to the bash you can thank Bwana for recommending it. Nzoner is getting 1 of 6 pack of each. My brother the same and I have the same for me whatever I decide to do with it.

I'm a fan of Boulevard as well. About the only ones I don't care for are the wheat beers, but I'm not a wheat beer fan. Was the Belgian you mentioned ZON? That's a seasonal, the current one is the Bob's 47. Picked up a 12 of that yesterday.

Heading over to my favorite beer store in Oregon to get me some more Boulevard and cider. It's been far too long and this thread reminded me that I need to get there. They have beers from all over the world and a great place to try them out as well.

A good start for the weekend for sure. It's a place called Belmont Station in Portland, Or. Quite the list on their website: http://www.belmont-station.com/index.php?id=bottles

No, looked it up, and it was the Nommo. Seasonal that debuted last fall, I think. I first had it (or some batch of it) when I toured the brewery last summer. It was phenomenal. I almost used all of my tickets on that beer alone.

Grabbed two 4 packs, gonna save some for the bash tomorrow. Nzoner gets first dibs since he's a great host, all you other fuckers will have to duke it out to see who gets the extras.
