Brett is Back

Boulevard's Saison-Brett, which I've proclaimed the best Boulevard beer, is out. The new batch is available now at Gomer's in Lenexa. I'd like to thank Gomer's Midtown for not telling me on the phone today when I was inquiring about Two Jokers, maybe they didn't know. I'm not going to lie, this one comes as a complete surprise to me.

I'm looking forward to buying one and comparing it to one of my 4 bottles left over from the last batch. I think if my arm was twisted hard enough we could have a beer blogger meet up to try the two bottles.

Hat tip to Chimpotle. I trust he was able to make it home without wrecking his car again.

  1. The guy at the midtown Berbiglia said he thought they were getting it in this week -- and I thought he didn't know what he was talking about since I figured you would have posted something. I know where I'm headed tomorrow after work.

  2. I saw on BA that there was a couple cases on Metcalf so I was around there today and picked up a couple more bottles but they were numbered high as if they were left overs from the first batch. Beernews.org says they're going to make some more Saison-Brett and release later this year. Do you know if this is a new batch or Boulevard found a stack in the back or something and distributed? Brett was good but my taste buds loved the BBQ as the best Smokestack. Regarldess I'm getting some sweet trades on BA for both bottles.

  4. I've been meaning to ask you guys (and the other area bloggers) if you wanted to plan some sort of KC Meetup of the Beer-Minded type of beer-drinking gathering... Brett sounds like as good a reason as any (as if I need a reason..?)

  7. We have the jokers in the warehouse, but have not been told to load them yet. I have a feeling that they will be going out this week. I will let you know when they go out.

  8. Fireball it looks like next week. I don't know why they would want to hold it back, but apparently they do.

  9. I'm pretty sure people know about it. I have a feeling that they are trying to create a hype or something, which if that is the case they are doing a good job.

  10. I called Gomers North, and they said Two Jokers would be out in the next 2 weeks.

  11. I have heard from a few people that the Saison-Brett that's out now is NOT the 2009. I grabbed a bottle last night and could not confirm one way or the other, but it seems strange that it's out so much earlier than planned, and with zero notice. Anybody else heard anything like that?

  12. As I said on my blog, the Saison-Brett out now has a batch of 2009-1 compared to last year's 2008-1.
