My husband and I toured the Boulevard Brewing Company in Kansas City this past weekend. It was soo much fun and it was free AND we got free samples! Here are some pictures.
He was very excited to take the tour!
4 bottle caps=4 samples.
They store some of their beer in wine barrels. They do this because it gives the beer some of the barrel taste which makes it more yummy!
This is an ode to Iowa. Templeton Rye is only made in Iowa and it only comes out a couple of times a year. It makes me homesick :(
This was one of the huge vats that they let the beer steep in. They are built into the ceiling of an almost completely cement building. One fact that I remember about the strength of the building is that it can withstand and magnitude 7.0 earthquake and an F3 tornado at the same time. Holy cow that’s strong!
This was in their new brewhouse that we also toured.

2 of my 4 samples. On the left we have their wheat beer and on the left we have their pilsner. They were both fantastic but I have to say I enjoyed the wheat a little bit more than the pilsner.
He likes his bock sample. Maybe a little too much? You decide.
As with the art museum, this was a great way to spend a couple of hours. It was interesting to see how a brewery works and the samples were also nice. I would definitely visit again! Go and check it out if you’re in the area, I’d love to know what you think of it!
