It's always nice to drink to new beginnings -- and Boulevard toasts its first collaboration, appropriately titled Collaboration No. 1, on Monday night at the Oread Hotel's Bird Dog Bar in Lawrence.

Brewmaster Steven Pauwels joins Jean Marie-Rock, brewmaster at the Belgian brewery Orval, to toast the release of the limited-edition Imperial Pilsner from 8 to 10 p.m. The Smokestack bottles are expected to be in Kansas City liquor stores next week.

Show-Me Beer and KC Beer Blog have both weighed in with enthusiasm for the collaboration and what it means for Boulevard.

Boulevard posted videos of the first bottling run on Facebook last month. You can see empty bottles being filled on the line, the cork being inserted into the bottle and the bottles packaged for shipping.

This year is starting off with a bang at Boulevard. The brewery has installed three, 600-barrel tanks, which means that Boulevard has added an additional 3,600 keg capacity for fermenting beer.

Here's to more beer.
