A third Love Child is born

Today marks the release of Boulevard's Love Child No. 3, the third beer produced in their series of barrel-aged wild ales, and second in the series to be sold and distributed to the general public. According to Boulevard, this version of Love Child features a blend of beers that were aged anywhere from 16 months to six YEARS, employing oak barrels for aging. Additionally, a portion of the beer spent 11 months in stainless steel tanks with Lactobacillus to bring you that sour funk we all crave.

As was the case with the No. 2 release, Love Child No. 3 will only be available for purchase in 750 ml bottles. Last year's version seemed to linger in stores for a while and Kansas City will be getting more of No. 3 than No. 2, so if you are interested in grabbing a bottle, I don't think you'll need to hydroplane through traffic on your lunch break to secure one. No word yet on exactly what the price point will be, but I imagine retailers will be marking it in the $17-20 price tag range that the previous version had.

To celebrate the launch of Love Child No. 3, Boulevard is also doing something unique and holding two live online Q&A sessions today. Question topics don't have to be restricted to Love Child, so if there's something you'd like to have answered by a Boulevard brewer, send your questions by 2pm to ontap@boulevard.com, or send them to Boulevard via Facebook or Twitter. Then tune in at 3pm and 7pm CST by visiting boulevard.com/live. Plus, if you submit a question, you are entered for a chance to win a pair of Sporting KC tickets. If you need question ideas, I would suggest asking Jeremy Danner about goats, his fear of birds, or the 'craft vs. crafty' debate.

Finally, on a somewhat related note, Boulevard, I'm still waiting to see those Love Child maternity shirts go into production. Call me.
