Boulevard new Radler Cranberry Orange plus more...

Back in stock now at Forsyth.
(not sure how soon I can get it back online with the new Website, working on a bunch of other stuff behind the scenes on the site now.  Very sorry, and thanks for your patience)

Boulevard Cranberry Orange Radler...$7.99 / 6 pack Cans
Style: Radler
The Boulevard Radler series is a zesty, refreshing take on the tradition of mixing beer with soda or lemonade to create a flavorful, thirst-quenching beverage. Radler was tailor-made for those with an active lifestyle, but you can enjoy our version even when doing nothing more strenuous that lifting it to your lips.


Boulevard Snow & Tell – Oak-Aged Scotch Ale...$7.99 / 6pk
Snow & Tell, our newest winter seasonal beer, is being released to coincide with the change in the weather that occurs in the Midwest as we transition from crisp fall days into cooler, brisk nights. A malt blanket of sorts, Snow & Tell is our interpretation of a Scotch Ale or Wee Heavy. Ranging in alcohol from 6% up to 10% in more extreme examples of the style, Scotch Ales typically feature rich, caramel malt sweetness punctuated by spicy/herbal hops.

At 6.3 ABV, Snow & Tell is composed of our base pale malt, crystal/caramel malt, amber malt and just a touch of Beechwood smoked malt from Germany. At just under 1% of the total malt bill, the smoked malt lends subtle complexity without overpowering the layers of caramel and toffee flavors contributed by the crystal malt. Hopped with Magnum, Chinook and Styrian Goldings, Snow & Tell sees brief aging on medium toasted oak chips at the end of fermentation.

Opening with aromas of fig, raisins and caramel/toffee Snow & Tell stretches out, enveloping the palate with a lingering malt sweetness that transitions into spicy/herbal hop flavors coupled with a drying, oaky character. The hops are fairly minimal at 25 IBUs, but serve to keep Snow & Tell from becoming cloying. A great sipper on a cool night, we suggest pairing Snow & Tell with heavy meat dishes, strong aged cheeses, chocolate and shortbread.

Boulevard Nutcracker Ale...$7.99 / 6pk
Style: Winter Specialty Beer
Nutcracker Ale is Boulevard’s holiday gift for real beer lovers. This hearty, warming brew is a classic winter ale, deep amber in color, with hints of molasses balanced by the “spiciness” of Chinook hops.
