Boulevard Brewing Co. (Kansas City, Missouri) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Plaid Habit, a Canadian Whisky Barrel-aged Imperial Brown Ale, on November 4, 2019.
Originally introduced in 2018, Plaid Habit is a double-mashed Imperial Brown Ale that has been “matured for 18 months in freshly emptied 10-year Canadian rye whisky barrels.” Coming in at a cozy 12.5% ABV, Plaid Habit supplies “checkered notes of rich vanilla, charred oak, warming whisky and spicy rye” that pair beautifully with the colder temperatures ahead.
Plaid Habit will debut in the Greater Kansas City Area on November 4 and is scheduled to hit other regions shortly after that date. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in areas “that typically see Smokestack Series Limited Release beers (Rye on Rye, Smooth Fuzz, Love Child series).” Prost!
