Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad switches bottle sizes this fall

Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad

Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad, aka “BBQ” has been a part of the brewery’s Smokestack Series for years. The Kansas City based brewery ages a quadrupel in bourbon barrels with cherries for the release.

 

Based loosely on the Smokestack Series’ The Sixth Glass, this abbey-style quadrupel is separated into a number of oak bourbon barrels where it ages for varying lengths of time, some for up to three years. Cherries are added to make up for the “angel’s share” of beer lost during barrel aging. Selected barrels are then blended for optimum flavor. The resulting beer retains only very subtle cherry characteristics, with toffee and vanilla notes coming to the fore.

 

A big change is coming this fall, when the brewery will change the bottle size over to 12 ounce bottles, a part of a 4-pack.

 

New package design will start shipping sometime this fall.
