Beer Buzz Hits the Road: Boulevard Brewing Company

Tagged:

Perhaps the only thing better than enjoying a great beer is seeing all the hard work and craftsmanship that goes into making it – Preferably while drinking said beer. So when Boulevard Brewing Company invited us to come down to Kansas City to visit the brewery as well as their new barrel aging warehouse we jumped at the chance. We had the chance to try a variety of amazing beers, some right out of the barrel. Here are two classic Belgian style brews from Boulevard that are not to be missed.

Brett Beers Binny's

 

Brettanomyces, or Brett, is an infamous yeast that is feared by many and treasured by others. Since it occurs naturally in the wild, most breweries try their hardest to prevent it from getting into their beers. Its signature barnyard aroma and flavors are viewed as a flaw in most beer styles. Several Belgian brewers decided instead to showcase its eccentricities and many American craft brewers are beginning to experiment with this beguiling creature. While it’s often present in sour beers, beers brewed with Brett are not inherently sour. Depending upon the particular strain of Brettanomyces, it tends to produce earthy notes with accents of peppercorn and sometimes even tropical fruit. It’s a voracious eater so be prepared for dry and effervescent beers. Here are a few of our favorites. Are you ready to get down with the barn?

We’re lucky to live in the midwest, home of iconic beers including KBS and Hopslam. It’s been a while since the Beer Buzz team last traveled to Michigan, so we packed up the bus and hit the road again. This time even more beer-loving Binny’s employees explored, tasted and learned about some of Michigan’s best breweries – and even a cidery – and we’re bringing our passion back for you.

Beer Classics: Pilsner

Tagged:

As today’s beer enthusiasts clamor for more session-able brews, it makes sense that a growing number of craft brewers have finally set their sights on this old world classic. Pilsners were first conceived in the 19th century by Bavarian brewmaster Josef Groll. His bottom fermenting strain of yeast yielded a sparkling, golden brew whose white foam, sweet malty notes, and hoppy savor came to define the style. We’ve picked out a few of our favorite new world takes on the style as well as a pair of must-try classics.
