Hitting Shelves: Boulevard Love Child + Brett, Green Flash Road Warrior, Founders

Brand_Love_Child_SeriesSome familiar beers will be hitting Eastern Iowa shelves in the coming weeks. Boulevard releasing two favorites in Love Child and Saison Brett. Here’s more on these two brews:

Love Child #5 – #5 will be and should be on shelves by the end of the week in Eastern Iowa and we should be seeing #6 sometime in the fall I believe. From Boulevard:

Boulevard’s Love Child Series of “wild” ales are barrel-aged with such boisterous cultures as Lactobaccillus and Brettanomyces. These wayward offspring can prove so complex that we employ gauges on the label to convey the intensity of three key personality traits, Funk, Sour, and Fruit, presenting a picture of the ale at the time it was released. It will change as it ages, but don’t we all?

saison brettSaison Brett – maybe one of my favorite beers, a list that is ever growing but a beer I make sure to stock up on for sure.

Saison-Brett, based on our very popular Tank 7, is assertively dry hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the “Brett” character, if that’s what you’re after.

Hop on and enjoy the rye of your life! Our imperial rye IPA is brewed in the name of our road warriors – the sales team that tirelessly hit the streets, traveling from town to town and pub to pub sharing the Green Flash experience. Road Warrior charge full flavor forward. Columbus and Mosaic hops, rich crystal and spicy rye malts pave the way for Mosaic and Amarillo dry hopping to boldly shine through in the finish. Raise a glass to those who never settle!

old curmudgeoFounders Old Curmudgeon –  

This Old Ale conjures up thoughts of classic sea fairing ports, there local pubs and the weathered fisherman that frequent them. In traditional style Curmudgeon is brewed with an intense focus on the malt bill creating a very strong, rich, malty characteristic and a sweetness indicative of its cousin the barleywine. We are especially proud of the balance in this beer making it deceptively smooth and drinkable at 9.8% alcohol by volume.

If you see anything new feel free to drop me a message! Cheers!
