We have just confirmed that Boulevard Brewing Company, the pride of Kansas City, Missouri, will be shipping their beers to Binny’s! The tentative release date is mid-April, and we are anticipating four year round beers in six-packs, as well as one seasonal beer available in six-packs. Also soon to be en route are four beers from Boulevard’s Smokestack series, available in 750ml corked and caged bottles and 4-packs. Since Boulevard has eight year round, five seasonal, and nine Smokestack beers listed on their website, you are probably eager to see what Boulevard will be bringing to Binny’s. So without further ado, here is the list (included in the list are the brewer’s descriptions):
Year Round Six-Packs
