Next week, fans of Boulevard Brewing Co. will be able to buy a new beer in cans.
The Kansas City, Mo.-based brewery will be releasing American Kolsch, a 4.6 percent ABV Köln-style golden ale packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce cans. Boulevard has released a similar beer before under its Tasting Room Series, which allows people to vote on their favorite releases to end up in the brewery’s regular rotation. That version is named Amerikan Kölsch (4.6 percent ABV) and was released for the first time in 2015 before being packaged in 12-ounce bottles.
When asked if the two beers were the same beer, Weeks told Tenemu that American Kolsch “…is very similar to the beer we have in the Tasting Room Series.”
According to a post on the Kansas City, Mo.-based brewery’s Facebook page, American Kolsch will debut in the Kansas City “next week”, and is scheduled to ship to retailers across Boulevard’s 37-state distribution footprint “soon.”
