Boulevard’s Sixth Glass
If you follow the Brew of the Week posts, you may be familiar with our love for Boulevard Brewery in Kansas CIty by now. Perhaps it was because I lived there for sometime, or maybe it is the simple fact that these guys continuously release some of the best beer around.
The Sixth Glass, is a Quadrupel that will knock your socks off and have you snoozing before you know it. This brew is loaded with dark fruits, such as plums and raisins, all while being balanced with some caramel sweetness. The beer is very strong, sweet, and not very hoppy whatsoever. The Sixth Glass will have you feeling great anytime you drink it, as it sits at a whopping 10.5% Alc/Vol. You can find this one in either a 4-pack, or as a bomber for $10 each. . It is worth every last drop.
Batch #6 – CITRA Hopped Double IPA
You probably have never seen or tasted this home-brewed MADE affiliated beer, but we are putting the plug on this one for a number of reasons. Batch #6 is by far the best brew from the crew, and it certainly will be making rounds at parties and events this summer. Slightly illegal? Yes, but who the hell cares, it is real tasty and they are free. Everything above is in the works and is subject to change, but as their equipment continues to be upgraded, so is the production and accuracy that comes with the new tools.
This Citra based double IPA, is one that can be drank year round, especially in the warmer seasons that are approaching. Batch #6 is backed heavily with a trio of hops: Citra, Amarillo and Nugget hops, making for more of a sweet and florally DIPA. Sitting at a lower 8% Alc. by volume, this DIPA is smoother than a new Tesla as it hits the pallet nicely. Make sure to stay tuned as more changes are to come.
