New from Boulevard:  City Market Cider!

6/4 Packs Item # 09391  $52.00

The city market represents a place where chefs and home cooks come together to show and taste the best flavors in the region. Our brewing team captured this spirit in City Market Cider, our first ever cider release. This local blend combines juice from Jonathan and Fuji apples sourced directly from Sibley Orchard & Cider Mill in Sibley, Missouri. City Market Cider is fermented with our house English ale yeast strain resulting in a crisp, dry cider with just a touch of sweetness contributed by juice held back for blending.

Pouring a slightly hazy golden, City Market Cider offers bright aromas of sweet/tart apples that are answered by bold, juicy flavors with Jonathan apples taking the spotlight with Fuji supporting with a soft acidity reminiscent of apple skin tartness. Featuring a slight blend back of fresh Fuji juice (2.8% of the total blend) to lend a balancing sweetness, City Market Cider’s finish lingers, alternating between sweet and tart apple character that begs for another sip.


Local Mass Brewer Brewmaster Jack Seasonal: Total Eclipse Rye Porter

Narragansett Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout

4/6 pack 16oz Can Item # 28742  $30.70

A unique collaboration between two iconic Rhode Island companies.  A custom blend of Narragansett’s bittersweet milk stout with dark, delicious Autocrat Coffee makes for a delightful beer that is more Rhode Island than Roger Williams himself. Since the 1890’s, Narragansett Beer and Autocrat Coffee have been home-grown Rhode Island favorites. With more than 100 years of shared heritage, the two local legends joined forces to celebrate the art of craft brewing and bring New England an emblematic brew that pays homage to their history. The full-bodied milk stout is enriched with the robust flavor of Autocrat Coffee to achieve an extraordinary taste experience. Brewed under the supervision of award-winning Brewmaster Sean Larkin, Narragansett’s Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout delivers a flavorful, smooth, dark brew with notes of roasted barley, chocolate malt and rich crystal malt. The exacting touch of hops provides just the right amount of bitterness to balance the sweet notes of the malts and milk sugar.  (5.3%)

Limited Release from Vermont’s Switchback Brewery:  Dooley’s Porter!

4/6 Packs Item # 54408  $31.00

Our Porter features a blend of roasted and caramelized malts giving it a luscious malt signature that has an earthiness derived from the non-traditional use of ­flaked barley in the grain bill. The bold use of only Simcoe hops for both bittering and aroma highlights this hop varietal and balances the malt to create a robust, yet smooth finishing porter. Long ago, the owner gave his first employee, Chris Dooley, the honor of selecting the next beer style to produce. Dooley (never call him Chris) chose porter. However, the demand for Switchback Ale, our fl­agship brew, exceeded our capacity, preventing the release of this new beer for FIVE years. Our first kegs of Porter were finally sold in December 2009. Considering this long delay, we christened it Dooley’s Belated Porter.

Introducing an unfiltered pale lager that’s made the unhurried, traditional way. Using the centuries old method of decoction mashing, this beer takes longer to brew and delivers more flavor.

Retired style but back by demand for a limited release:  Bantam The Americain!

1/6 Bbls Item # 73027  $85.00  (only 5 avail.!)

It was first made to remind us of the rich and amazing flavors we experienced in our friend’s homemade batch of apple butter. Green Cardamom, Coriander, Clove, Cinnamon and Rose Petals create a rich and aromatic character that is luscious and deliciously edible. And why the French name? Well, anything said in French sound sexier, don’t you agree? And while this cider takes its name from the French, it’s cloudy like English Scrumpy and features traditional Persian spices, its taste is truly American; as American as apple pie.  (5.2%)

This beer is the stickiest of the icky.

Boulevard Limited Release:  Collaboration # 7!

6/4 Packs Item # 11311  $52.00

Collaboration No. 7

Oak-Aged Lager

For our first collaboration featuring three breweries, we selected our partners following the same approach we’ve used for previous collaboration projects. Our goal is to work with brewers for whom we have mutual respect while learning new techniques and celebrating the strengths of each brewery. Arizona Wilderness has become known as champions for local ingredients in innovative beers while the Creature Comforts crew is “dedicated to better being through being curious.” It’s no coincidence that we absolutely LOVE enjoying beers with both brewery teams. For the full backstory on our relationships with both breweries, please head to a previous Brewer’s Blog post.

Built on a base of two-row pale malt, Sonoran White Wheat, honey malt and corn grits, Collaboration No. 7 – Oak-Aged Lager showcases Riesling grape juice, peaches and lemon zest in a crisp lager hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Lemondrop and Hallertau Blancs. Following fermentation with the Ayinger lager strain, Collaboration No. 7 was briefly aged on Cuvee No. 5 Tank Staves, French oak staves that impart fruit, spice, toast and tannins similar to aging in a fresh/virgin French oak barrel.

At 6% ABV and 16 IBUs, Collaboration No. 7 Oak-Aged Lager pours a brilliant golden color with tight, off-white lacing. Bright aromas of peach and Riesling grapes mingle with the tropical fruit notes provided by subtle hopping. Lemon zest accentuates the naturally citrusy character of the beer as the malt bill forms a slightly sweet, honey-like base from which the chosen regional ingredients shine. French oak character lends a drying effect resulting in a bright, fruity lager that finishes incredibly crisp. Bottle conditioned with champagne yeast, Collaboration No. 7 – Oak-Aged Lager has fluffy, effervescent carbonation that scrubs the palate and begs for another sip.

Blue Moon Mango Wheat!

4/6 Packs Item # 13465  $28.70

Refreshing with the Taste of Ripe Mangos

Our head brewmaster, Keith Villa, got the idea for this refreshing, summer beer from spending time on the beaches in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cancun and wanting a beer that was refreshing with a taste of ripe mangos. The fruit vendors would bring freshly cut mangos and put them on a stick to enjoy in the sunshine. This beer is created with mango and a hint of honey for a mild sweetness with a bright yellow-orange color and cloudy wheat haze.

New from Boston’s own Samuel Adams Brewery!

Brewing the American Dream Limited Release!

2/12 Packs Item # 15920  $32.70  ($3.50 off 5 cases)

To celebrate the independent and entrepreneurial spirit of the craft beer industry, Samuel Adams has collaborated with five different breweries across the country to brew a limited release 12-pack for the first-time ever, aptly named The Brewing the American Dream Collaboration Pack. From bartenders to chefs, the collaborative spirit of “craft” is stronger than ever. No industry better exudes this spirit than the craft brewing community, where independent brewers put aside competition to collaborate creatively and challenge each other to push the envelope.

Unlike any other beer collaborations before, this pack features brewers who are part of Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream, the brewery’s signature philanthropic program. Nearly a decade ago, Sam Adams created Brewing the American Dream to provide loans and coaching to craft brewers and small business owners pursuing their passions and the American Dream of starting their own business. All profits from this collaboration pack will be donated to non-profit program partner and small business lender Accion to support loans to food and beverage entrepreneurs nationwide.

The pack’s five brewers – Roc Brewing Co. (Rochester, NY), Bosque Brewing (Albuquerque, NM), ChuckAlek Independent Brewers (Ramona, CA), Woods Beer Co. (San Francisco, CA) and Brewery Rickoli (Wheat Ridge, CO) – have participated in the program and received a loan to kick start or grow their craft breweries. And most have participated in the Brewing and Business Experienceship, receiving individual coaching from the team at Sam Adams.

“This pack represents the independent spirit, passion and collaboration that is core to our craft beer industry,” said Sam Adams founder and brewer Jim Koch. “We’re proud to have collaborated with these creative and passionate brewers in a way that allows us to continue to pay it forward and empower fellow independent craft brewers to be successful and to grow.”

Renowned for their Belgian farmhouse ales, good friends Phil Markowski and Belgian brewer Yvan De Baets teamed up to make this Double Grissett.  This beer has the malted wheat base and generous hopping of this bygone Belgian style but adds a twist:  two different yeast strains were used, a wild yeast from Connecticut and a traditional Saison yeast from Belgium.  The result is a dry, fruity and aromatic farmhouse ale with genuine Belgo-American Pedigree.  (6.5%)

Boon Oude Geuze Vat 109

12/375 ml Item # 02697  $170.00  UPC:  8 59996 04003 9

Traditional ‘Oude Geuze’ VAT 109 is a Monoblend composed with 90% Lambic from cask (foeder) N°109 and 10% young Lambic. The Lambic used for this Geuze was brewed on the 16th of April 2014 and bottled on the 18th of April 2016. Foeder N°109 is an oak cask of 9000 liters and it is over 100 years old. It was built in Germany around the year 1910 by the company Drexler as part of a series of four foeders as a “beer foeder”, but since 1935 it was used to stock cognac. In 2009 the cask was put into service at our brewery after it was shaved on the inside. The foeder still gives a special cognac-character to the Lambic which ages on it. This is the reason why we have selected this cask for our VAT-series. VAT 109 is also the first Geuze in this series made for 100% with Lambic brewed in our new brewhouse. The Lambic for Traditional Oude Geuze Boon VAT 109 has aged in foeder N°109 for 2 years. After being bottled and having aged for at least another 6 months in the bottle, VAT 109 is now ready to be enjoyed. With a fermentation degree of 93% this Geuze is not extremely dry, but still full-bodied, a perfect balance. The wild yeasts in the Lambic of VAT 109 have created a richness of tastes and aromas: oak wood, spicy-smokiness, some vanilla notes, dry fruit and peaches. Supported by an alcohol content of 8,25% Vol., this Traditional Oude Geuze is a perfect accompaniment to venison dishes and old cheese.

Boon Oude Gueze Black Label

6/750 ML Item # 02695  $66.75  UPC:  8 59996 04025 1

In 2015 Boon Brewery presented Oude Geuze Boon Black Label for the first time. This Oude Geuze suited the consumers’ palate very well and in May 2016 it won the gold medal at the ‘World Beer Cup 2016’. Because of the success it was decided to make a new blend, Black Label Second Edition. It was bottled at the beginning of 2016. The result is yet again a bone-dry geuze which tastes –although smoother and having more of an old lambic character – similar to the previous edition.

This Oude Geuze is made from a selection of lambic from oak casks, foeders, with the highest degree of fermentation. This makes Oude Geuze Boon Black Label bone-dry while keeping it full-bodied.

As inspiration for the label on the bottle, the 40 year old design of the first label of ‘Oude Geuze Boon’ was used. The thick white letters ‘Geuze Boon’ will probably be recognized by fans of Geuze Boon from back then.

Hibiscus Cider!

4/6 Packs Item # 70817  $28.00

This Hibiscus Cider was originally brewed by Harpooners, Julia Falk, Cait Kelliher, Jordan McMillan, Carolyn Orth, and Rich Eyring for the Harpoon Kettle Cup, an annual employee brewing competition. It was agreed (instantly and unanimously) that it should be shared beyond the brewery walls as a summer seasonal cider. 

Hibiscus flowers give the cider its festive, effervescent deep pink hue, as well as a floral tartness that complements the sweetness from the freshly pressed apples.
