Terra Incognita is the second in a trilogy of Boulevard - Sierra Nevada beers. The breweries' first collaboration was an ale for the Brewers Association's SAVOR conference in 2012. The third release, another barrel-aged brew set for 2014, will be made at Sierra Nevada's Chico, California, brewery. Pauwels and Sierra Nevada brewmaster Steve Dresler discussed their creation with The Pitch during a recent conference call.
The Alamo Drafthouse is back with cinematic wines. On the heels of a Princess Bride-inspired vintage comes The Silence of the Lambs signature wines. There's Cannibal Chianti and Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio. Bottles ($32) will be available online or at the Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet in June.
Tripel Julep is the mint-infused, whiskey-barrel-aged, extremely limited batch of Long Strange Tripel that Boulevard is releasing to Kansas City-area taps (and nowhere else on this beer-drinking earth) in homage to the Kentucky Derby. It's a beer-inspired play on the mint julep. Happy hunting and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments, if you snag a draft. The full list is after the jump.
Just a note, the formula for Pilsner isn't changing. This is just a rebranding effort on the part of the brewery on Southwest Boulevard. On its Facebook page, Boulevard stated that KC Pils will be on tap at the Sporting KC game this Saturday, where soccer fans can also eat Grinders food at Sporting Park for the first time and enjoy pregame at the Budweiser Beer Garden.
Tripel Julep is expected to be on tap around the city over the coming week (at bars that regularly carry Smokestack offerings). Affare, Anton's Taproom, the Brick and Snow & Co. will all be getting kegs (h/t to @KCCrossroads). Standard scavenger-hunt rules apply. If you see it on tap, kindly note it (and the price, if possible) in the comments section.
"We think it's pretty unique," said BD's Michael Passero. "A growler is the freshest way to drink draft beer at home."
