|The freshest beer comes out of your basement.|
Now realistically, the freshness of beer from any package brewery like Boulevard has more to do with the liquor store or bar you buy it at. But if you're buying from a good liquor store or bar that actually cares about their product and has a decent turnover rate, then the local beer will always be the freshest thing available. Of course, brew pubs don't even have this problem. If you buy beer at a brew pub, it's guaranteed to be fresh. The only way to get fresher beer is to brew it yourself.
There are obviously lots of other reasons to drink local as well. You create less waste, support the local economy, and create jobs in our city. You have access to the brewers and can give them feedback in person (no, anonymous online reviews don't count). And regardless of where the profits are going from a local brewery, it's still going to give you access to delicious fresh beer. And in my opinion, a super fresh average beer is always better than an old and stale world class beer. So go brew your own or drink some local beer! Do that, and we can go back to the good old '90's:
