Default boulevard in KC

Really disappointed. Wish i wasn't. The stout was lacking any body. The farmhouse was really good but timid for the styl

boulevard makes a good hoppy beer. not so much on the non-hoppy beers

Interesting, I have about the opposite opinion of them.

I brought a keg of my blonde to a friends b-day party tonight, and he had a keg of boulevard wheat; my keg was empty before the Boulevard was half gone. Score one for the good guys.

I agree with most that's been said on this thread so far, however, they do have a Classic American Pilsner that I just tried a few weeks ago. It's a very good beer. The most impressive one of theirs IMO.

Their standard offerings are all pretty decent, but IMO where they shine is the Smokestack Series beers.

IffyG is completely correct. Their smokestack series is fantastic, and its really where they shine the "craft" of craft beer. Their seasonals are good, love the nutcracker ale.

When it comes to Boulevard's products, while they've got a lot of perfectly drinkable beers, and I'll buy them on sale, to paraphrase what Gertrude Stein said of Oakland, "There's not a lot of there there." Given this qualification, I like the Single Wide IPA and the Bully Porter best, I suppose, so I don't fall into liking either the hopped or non-hopped varieties. Trying Boss Tom's Golden Bock this weekend. Stuff is on sale around here for a buck a bottle, which is damn good.

I feel the same. I dig their Pale Ale and Wheat for nice easy drinking beers. Those two are probably my equivalent to most peoples bud light (in use) as in they are great when on the lake or mowing the lawn. Tasty, refreshing, non exceptional in a good way.
