According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Boulevard Brewing Co. is bringing back Rye on Rye X – Sazerac, its cocktail-inspired beer.
Coming in at 11.8 percent ABV, the 2017 incarnation of Rye on Rye X – Sazerac is being brewed with lemon peel and spices before being aged in barrels that previously held Templeton Rye. The ale was released last year as a part of Boulevard’s Smokestack Series, but this vintage is being released under the Kansas City, Mo. brewery’s Limited Release Series.
“Capturing the essence of the classic Sazerac cocktail in beer form, this variation of Rye on Rye is infused with lemon peel, cinnamon, cardamom and star anise, before aging in fresh Templeton Rye casks,” reads the beer label. “Spicy, with notes of black pepper and citrus, this beer is an expression for our love for a well-made cocktail.”
Rye on Rye X – Sazerac will be packaged in 750ml bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
