I'm so excited I'm going to go pound some nails without a hammer after I get done here. Boulevard is adding 2 new beers to the Smokestack lineup; a Saison-Brett (nicknamed the "George Brett") and Bourbon Barrel Quadrupel.
Some will recognize Saison-Brett as a beer that first surprised at the Belgium Comes to Cooperstown fest in 2006. It then appeared at both BCTC and the Great American Beer Festival in 2007. At the festivals, the Brett profile in the beer earned the name, “George Brett,” as a result of Boulevard’s location in Kansas City, which happens to be where the Hall of Fame infielder played his entire career.
Saison-Brett will be released to the tune of less than 12,000 bottles and BBQ even more limited at approximately 7000. Each bottle will be individually numbered. The beers will be released into the same distribution channel as the other Smokestack beers.
Thanks to The Scout for sending me this link.
