Tank 7 Available

Our KC distributor has finally decided to load Boulevard Tank 7 onto their trucks today so it will be available at any store in the area that is receiving their Boulevard shipment today. This will make Stella very happy.

It should be available at $6.99 to $8.99 at any Boulevard retailer by the end of the week. Call it out in comments where you find it and at what price.

Update: Some people are getting screwed buying these at $11.99. Gomer's in Lenexa will have them tomorrow at $7.59. If you see them at the higher price point, the retailer is either confused or trying to gouge you a little for being an early adopter. Let us know where you're seeing it and at what price and let the retailer know they should be charging the same amount as they do for the other regular Smokestack series beer.

  1. I had a friend tell me he saw it at Metcalf Discount last week. Cannot confirm nor deny.

  2. Lukas in Martin City has it for $11.99. Wish I'd known about the lower price point before I bought 2. Oh well, such is the life of the early adopter.

  6. Wow, I'm losing a lot of respect for some local beer stores over this. Martin City Lukas and Gomer's South, I'm looking at you.

  9. For Gods sakes. 5 of your last 6 posts are about Boulevard. You are their bitch. You mean in a town of 1.7 million people there isn't anything else beer related to write on? Quit being such lazy DBs.

  10. Andy, I'm aware of it, we're not being lazy, they just happened to do a bunch of post worthy things over the past couple of weeks.

  13. Bubbles up north has it for $11.99. Hy-Vee on N. Antioch does not have it yet but said it would likely be in the $12 range as well. :( No Tank 7 for me, I guess.

  14. Keep up the good Boulevard posts. If anyone wants to stay more up-to-date with Boulevard they should their Facebook page. Blogs and web sites are soooo old-fashioned.

  15. Count me as one of those who got hosed - bought it at Lukas Liquor 119th and Metcalf on Monday for 11.99. The pisser is I actually read this blog beforehand, which led me to seek it out, but I failed to read the price gouging part, I guess. I love Lukas but this is a little disconcerning.

    Trying it tonight after work as the wife is meeting out with friends for happy hour, so I'll be conducing my own little happy hour at home on the couch.

  16. I made the Lukas mistake as well - brought the issue up with the clerk, but they seemed to care less, even as enthusiastic as one employee was that it was finally in stock.

  17. All the $12 bottles out there are a mistake by the distributor. I was told by gomers on 99th that they got billed BBQ pricing on the very first order by mistake, it has since been reduced to 8.99

  18. So they distribute it late and at the wrong price? How do these wastes of space stay in business?

  21. I bought both the Tank 7 and Bourbon Barrel Quad at Gomer's in Lee's Summit last night (Thursday is their weekly beer tasting). It had just come in, and wasn't even on the shelf--Aaron opened up a case for me. The price for Tank 7 was $7.59; BBQ was $12.99. Aaron mentioned that John McDonald stopped by that afternoon. I'm going to have a comparison tasting with some aged Saison.

  22. Just got some Tank 7 fresh off the truck at Metcalf Discount Liquor in Olathe for $7.99. Can't wait!

  23. The stores on the KS side never got charged the high price from the distributor. Everything got fixed before any product got delivered. They are just trying to make a huge profit on unsuspecting customers.
