Chocolate Kitchen

I'm sure those Chocolate Hunters in the audience already know this, but, Beer Kitchen is tapping a keg of Boulevard Chocolate Ale at 6 PM every night through Thursday. It will go fast so you need to be have your buns in a seat in the Beer Kitchen before the keg is tapped each night. It's not like there's not fine beers, burgers and fries at the Beer Kitchen to keep you entertained until the six o'clock hour hits. Plus, it will be happy hour before six with $2 sliders and buckets of fries. This could be your last chance to try the super chocolatey draft version as I've heard they will tweak the recipe next year to make it a little closer in taste to the bottled version (and the bottled version will be tweaked to get a little closer to the draft version, meeting somewhere in the middle).

  1. Sold out tonight (Monday) in 5 minutes. Get there early or no Chocolate for you.

  2. Actually, they were telling people that they were sold out by 5:30, but also weren't pre-selling the beer or taking reservations. All in all, not a well thought out process. Rest of the week is supposedly first come, first served basis, but there is no real rhyme or reason to it. It's not like the staff only takes orders once the keg is tapped, or there is a systematic way to get your order in. I'd rather wait until next year than go through Beer Kitchen's bullshit again.

  3. I enjoyed the Chocolate Ale well enough, and was lucky enough to get some bombers of it on release date. That said, I just don't understand the unprecedented demand for this beer, and am glad I do not have to go through this kind of thing just to enjoy a glass.

  4. I'm over chocolate beer until maybe next Christmas. It's had it's glorious snafu of a day and needs to be thought out a bit more.

    In fact, I'd love it if Boulevard simply didnt do it next year and instead brewed more Nutcrack. Like 8x more and made it a year rounder.
