Saison-Brett Day

Today's the day in KC that the best beer Boulevard makes starts getting delivered to stores. Normally I write that the beer will be hitting store shelves, but Saison-Brett is a little different, it might not even hit store shelves, it might be sold straight from the box. This is the beer that beer geeks are going to be buying by the case if they're allowed because it's great to cellar and it won't stay in stores long. So you need to make a plan to get some before it's gone. To top things off Saison-Brett is limited, there's just not enough of it to go around, you've got to get it as soon as you find it, it probably won't be there the next time you go to the store.

I had a bottle over the weekend and it's the same as I remember, wonderful. I've been drinking cellared 2009 versions about every 3 months for the past year and I'm pretty happy with drinking the current version over the older. The cellared version is good, and still the best Boulevard beer you can drink, but I think it's better now. People are going to buy as much as they can to drink now and in the next couple of years so it will be sold twice as fast as regular Smokestack seasonals like Two Jokers. When you hear of a store getting their Saison-Brett and you want some Saison-Brett, get yourself to that store immediately or you're not going to get any.

After you get yours let us know in the comments where you got it, what limits are in place and what price you paid (it should be around $12-$15). You're not going to get many better beers.

Disclosure: I received a bottle of Saison-Brett free from a source interested in selling more Saison-Brett. This freebie did not influence in any way anything in this post, but you can be the judge of that.
