Just tapped: Harvest Dance Wheatwine – Boulevard Brewing Co. 9.5% ABV. BA Score 90.Harvest Dance Wheat WIne Boulevard

Brewer’s Notes:
Harvest Dance Wheat Wine
Style: Wheat Wine
Availability: Winter Seasonal, 750 mL Bottles and Draught (limited)
Locations: Try our Beer Finder

John Barleycorn is memorialized in English folk tradition as the personification of the barley plant, sacrificed at harvest time and then reborn as beer or ale. Our Harvest Dance Wheat Wine is a celebration of John’s Midwestern cousin, wheat. Beginning with a large portion of wheat malt, we add an equally generous helping of Hallertau and Citra hops and age the ale on both French and American oak. The result is a big, warming burst of tropical fruit flavors, highlighted by subtle wine-like notes, and rounding slowly to a long, dry, oaky finish.

Just tapped: Grande Noirceur Russian Imperial Stout – Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! 9% ABV. BA Score dieu du ciel 189.

Brewer’s Notes:
The Grand Noirceur (Great Darkness). Is a dense black beer with robust roasted flavors. Its imposing bitterness is balanced by the presence of complex malted, caramel notes. It takes its name from the conservative policies of mid-century Quebec. The Grande Noirceur was born at our Montreal brewpub in March of 2004.

New arrivals: Oliver’s Bittersweet Funk Dry Cider by Oliver’s Cider and Perry Ltd.

Posted on

New arrivals: Oliver’s Bittersweet Funk Dry Cider – Oliver’s Cider and Perry Ltd.​ 6.9% ABV 750 ML funky cider 1Bottle.

Brewer’s Notes:
OLIVER’S CIDER & PERRY • ENGLAND

The Bittersweet Funk is a complex dry, still cider blended from the best barrels of Tom Oliver’s 2011 harvest. Traditional bittersweet and bittersharp vintage cider apples were pressed in late 2011, then fermented by wild yeasts through the winter, finishing in the spring at the same time as the malolactic ferment takes place. The cider then matured in old oak barrels for another 12 months before being bottled at about 18 months. It’s deliciously complex — a full, spicy nose with a hint of delicate blue cheese gives way to the robust taste of dry, bittering tannins, sour acids, and a long apple skin finish. A very full 6.9% ABV cider that has real character.

Just tapped: The Calling Imperial IPA by Boulevard Brewing Company​

Just tapped: The Calling Imperial IPA – Boulevard Brewing Company​ 8.5% ABV. BA Score 91.

calling-ipa

Brewer’s Notes:
The Calling is an undeniable IPA we were driven to make. It’s our tribute to like-minded dreamers, adventurous spirits, and glass half-full optimists. It’s also our most heavily hopped beer ever, bursting forth with unmistakable tropical fruit and pine hop aromas and flavor supported with a slightly sweet malt character, tapering to a crisp, dry finish. Heed your call and enjoy.
