image sourced from Beerpulse.comIt’s been some time since this website has mentioned St. Louis’s Kansas City's Boulevard Brewing Company. So we thought we would restart the discussion with a worthwhile announcement.
Arriving in the next couple of weeks, Boulevard Brewing announces their next IPA dubbed Pop-up.
Boulevard Brewing Company is excited to announce the expansion of its I.P.A. offerings with a new year-round addition to its core line. Pop-Up I.P.A. joins its bigger brothers, Single-Wide and Double-Wide, in our trailer park of hop-centric beers. This “session” model is built for frequent excursions, with a very drinkable character and relatively low bitterness tucked behind a big, fruity hop aroma.
The newest Boulevard beer measures in at 4.2% ABV (alcohol by volume). Session beers are typically brews under 5% ABV and come in a variety of styles. Boulevard is currently experimenting with other session beers and could release other offerings in the near future.
Admittedly you’re probably questioning how B.B. can call this an India Pale Ale given the vast majority of are 6.5% ABV. But this is another example where both the brewer and your wallet can choose the definition of I.P.A.
“I’ve been challenging our brewers to experiment with full-flavored, lower alcohol beers for quite some time,” said John McDonald, Boulevard founder and president. “It is important to me that Boulevard has balanced offerings that beer fans can enjoy for any occasion. Pop-Up I.P.A. has become a staple in my refrigerator ever since the first test batches were produced.”
Throughout this month, find Boulevard’s Pop-up I.P.A. at bars, restaurants, and grocery stores throughout the region. As for this writer I’m drinking one as soon as I can find it!
