Tour de BBQ and I'll be riding 35 miles in it. Somewhere around mile 20, I'll think about the Boulevard Wheat that is sure to meet me at the end of the ride and that thought along with some Oklahoma Joe's, RJ's Bob-Be-Que, Johnny's and Woodyard Barbecue along the last 15 miles, will get me to the end of the ride. And I won't have a better tasting beer than the Boulevard Wheat at the end of that ride. If you do the ride or have done it in the past, you'll know what I'm talking about.
If you're not riding in the Tour de BBQ and live downtown or somewhere south of downtown, east of I-35 and west of Holmes, odds are the Tour de BBQ will pass within a mile or two of your house. Why not look at the map, head out to a good viewing point near your house or down Southwest Boulevard near Boulevard, sit down and cheer on the riders. When you get back home or go to a bar, grab a Boulevard Wheat and maybe you'll get a fraction of the wonderful feeling that I and the other 2000 riders will have at the end of the ride. That's why Boulevard Wheat is the beer for the weekend.
As an added bonus, for any riders or volunteers, if you're one of the first 5 to post a picture of you enjoying a Boulevard Wheat with your Tour de BBQ gear visible (helmet tag, wrist band, bib number, etc.) on the KC Beer Blog Facebook page, I'll give you a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
