Boulevard Brewing Co. Introduces Two New Seasonals

Tough-Kitty-Diamond-BadgeBoulevard Brewing Co. (Kansas City, Missouri) has officially announced that it will soon release two new Seasonal offerings: Tough Kitty Milk Stout & Berliner Weisse.

First up, we venture into the realm of dark and creamy with the debut of Tough Kitty Milk Stout.  Brewed with Cara 120, Cara 300 and Patagonia Black Pearl, this deep black Milk Stout “features layers of caramel and chocolate malt complexity.”  The beer then receives a “subtle hopping” with Bravo and Cascade hops “to prevent the beer from being overly cloying.”  Finally, the brewers at Boulevard finish this beer off by adding “rolled oats in the mash tun and lactose, commonly referred to as milk sugar, in the wort kettle [to] lend a round, silky mouthfeel.”  This all results in a 5.5% ABV Milk Stout that “opens with aromas of bittersweet chocolate, espresso and toffee that transition to flavors of the same.”

Berliner-Weisse-Diamond-BadgeIf you happen to be looking for something a little lighter and on the sour side, Boulevard Brewing has you covered there as well with its second release of the season.  Boulevard’s Berliner Weisse is a German-style Sour Ale that features a “a malt bill composed of two-row base pale malt, malted wheat and CaraPils, . . . subtle bittering with Topaz hops and additions of orange, lemon and lime peel at the end of the boil to punctuate a soft lactic acidity with bright, citrus notes.”  After the beer undergoes primary fermentation with a strain of house ale yeast, the beer is then “inoculated with a lactobacillus culture that had previously been used to acidify Liefmans sour base beers and given several weeks for secondary fermentation to unfold.” Light in body and straw yellow in color, the resulting Berliner Weisse “opens with citrus aromas hinting to the soft sourness and lemon, lime and orange peel in a crisp, tart beer that’s incredibly flavorful and fruity while being super refreshing.”

Tough Kitty Milk Stout and Berliner Weisse will begin hitting shelves and taps over the next couple weeks and will hang around through October.  Once released, you will be able to find both of these Seasonal offerings available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at fine beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Missouri, and throughout the rest of Boulevard Brewing Co.’s distribution network.  Prost!
