This year, Valentine’s Day will have a little bit of extra meaning for fans of Boulevard Brewing Co.
That is the day that the Kansas City, Mo.-based brewery will be releasing Rye On Rye On Rye, a 14.5 percent ABV rye ale aged in freshly emptied Templeton Rye whiskey barrels between 6-12 months before being transferred for a secondary aging to a completely different batch of first use Templeton Rye whiskey barrels for approximately three months. The barrel-aged ale was first released by Boulevard as a draft-only option in 2016.
Rye On Rye On Rye is part of Boulevard’s Limited Release Series, which includes eight other beers released throughout the year:
- Rye On Rye On Rye — February 2017
- Scotch On Scotch — March 2017
- Changeling Dark Sour Ale — April 2017
- Saison Brett — May 2017
- Love Child No. 8 — June 2017
- Jam Band — July 2017
- Collaboration No. 7 — August 2017
- Cider — October 2017
- Barleywine — November 2017
According to a post on Boulevard’s Facebook page, Rye On Rye On Rye will be packaged in 750ml bottles and is scheduled to be released at retailers in Kansas City on Feb. 14, with distribution hitting cities that “typically see Smokestack Series Limited Release beers like Saison Brett or Love Child blends” following “in the coming weeks.”
