I have to say, working for a beer distributor does have it perks! I get to try lots of different beers when the brewery reps bring them in. No complaints from me! Not long ago Boulevard brought in some samples for us to try. I brought home a 4 pack of those beers. KC Pilsner was one of them. Though I am a wine person, the Lion King is a beer man, and I am enjoying beer more and more. I always take a taste or two of the beers I bring home before turning the bottle over to him. I have to say, this Boulevard KC Pilsner was the bomb!
Luke and I went to the liquor store Saturday evening looking for this beer and they did not have it, so he opted for the Sam Adams Fall Variety pack, which we love Sam Adams as well. However, I was a bit disappointed they did not have this Boulevard. The good news is, in exactly two weeks we are going to Kansas City and we will be touring the Boulevard Brewery. I think we will get a little extra treatment since my company is a distributor of Boulevard. Also, October 1st, Oklahoma becomes a “Strong” beer state which means we will no longer sale low point (3.2) beer, but high point (anything above 3.2) beer. Along with being able to sell wine in stores other than liquor stores. This is BIG for Oklahoma! There will be only two states left in the US carrying low point beer, one being Kansas and their transition going all high point, will be happening in April 2019, and Utah. Not sure what Utah’s plans are moving forward. I personally think breweries will not be making low point for just one state.
But now, with all of that being said, the Lion King and I both loved the KC Pilsner, and if you are a fan of a beer that is above average, and not over hoppy, this is the beer for you! Please try it and give us your feed back. We would love to hear from you! Especially if you are Kansas City fan!!
Hugs, Love, Peace & Roars,
