Boulevard Brewing Co. (Kansas City, Missouri) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Magic Drip: Barrel-Aged Wheated Imperial Stout with Colombian Coffee in mid-September 2021.
Crafted to embody the “fantastical marriage of magic and science.” Magic Drip is a “wheated” Imperial Stout “featuring pale, dark, and crystal malts, plus Magnum hops and Colombian Dark Roast Whole Bean Coffee from . . . Messenger Coffee.” The beer then went on to be “aged from 8-18 months in various Bourbon Casks, each barrel bringing its own personality of vanilla, oak and char.” Coming in at 13.5% ABV, the “fusion of the sweet and boozy Imperial Stout base alongside [the] rich coffee and boozy bourbon casks” used to create Magic Drip “makes for a balanced beer of rich chocolate and coffee, vanilla, whiskey, and toasted oak.”
Magic Drip is scheduled to hit the Kansas City area on September 13 and will see expanded distribution shortly after that date. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located within Boulevard’s distribution area. Prost!
