Boulevard Brewing Company

Another entry in my occasional series of posts about variety 12-packs…

Boulevard Brewing Company Sample Twelve

The Boulevard Brewing Company Sample Twelve features three bottles each of four different brews. What makes this mixed 12-pack special is that it includes two year-round offerings and two “Tasting Room Beers.”

The Boulevard Tasting Room used to be the only place you could sample test beers being considered for possible wide-spread release. Now Boulevard is offering these test brews in their Sample Twelve. When I saw that one of the test beers was an insanely hoppy IPA, I decided to give this 12-pack a try.

The year-round brews:

  • Unfiltered Wheat Beer, an easy-drinking American-style Wheat (4.4%)
  • 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer, this excellent hybrid brew is a delightfully distinctive ale with the aroma of an IPA and the refreshing taste of a wheat beer (5.5%)

The Tasting Room Beers:

  • Oatmeal Stout, a smooth, well-rounded Stout with notes of chocolate (5.5%)
  • Mid-Coast IPA, this insanely hoppy beer clocks in at over 100 IBUs! (5.6%)

Best Beer: This 12-pack has a solid line-up, but my favorite is easily the IPA – a tasty, chewy, hop-bomb. I may look for this 12-pack again, just for the IPA.

Where I found it:  Corridor Wine and Spirits in Laurel, Maryland
