Boulevard Brewing Co. (Kansas City, Missouri) has announced that Jam Band Berry Ale will officially join the brewery’s Year-Round lineup in February.
When it was first released in 2017 as a Smokestack Series limited release, the folks at Boulevard Brewing could not help but notice that fans immediately embraced Jam Band Berry Ale. Demand clearly warranted a return and this time it is back as a full-blown Year-Round release.
To ensure this flavorful Fruit Beer properly showcases the “huge fruit aroma and flavor contributed by blueberry, red raspberry and tart cherry juices blended into the beer at the end of fermentation”, the brewers at Boulevard built Jam Band “upon a fairly simple base beer composed of two-row malted barley with a small percentage of acidulated malt that provides a subtle, crisp tartness.” This approach results in a “deep ruby (nearly purple!) . . . slightly tart, easy-drinking fruit beer that begs for an encore.” When all is said and done, this Jam Band supplies an unforgettable performance that clocks in at 5.9% ABV and 6 IBUs.
Jam Band Berry Ale will begin its Year-Round availability in the Greater Kansas City Area “on February 5th (draft) and February 6th (packaging) with other regions to follow soon.” Once fully released, you can expect to find this new Year-Round available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Missouri and throughout the rest of Boulevard Brewing Co.’s distribution area. Prost!
