This holiday season, it’s important to remember the loved ones in your life. This is especially important to remember if those loved ones are Boulevard beers. Next Thursday, December 7th, beginning at 8PM, Boulevard Brewing will be doing a Tap Takeover at Three Kings Public House in the U-City Loop.

You’ll be seeing 12 different Boulevard beers on tap all while hobnobbing with Boulevard founder and president John McDonald. Here’s a list of the beers that will be on tap:

Unfiltered Wheat Beer
Nutcracker Ale
Pale Ale
Single Wide IPA
Amber Ale
Pilsner
Bully! Porter
Boulevard Stout
Tank 7
Nommo Dubbel
Harvest Dance

“But Mike, that’s only 11 beers on draught!” You’re quite the counter and observer. The other special beer on tap will be the Boulevard Saison Brett which they’ll be doing special samples of. This is a very cool opportunity to meet up with some cool people and drink some awesome beer next Thursday night.

It all started with a business card left at the International Tap House last November. Then we had a bit of a premature bite of what we thought was going to be a release in July. But now, I can officially be official and announce that the release date for Deschutes Brewery in St. Louis will be Monday, January 9th.

As exciting as this is, just be forewarned that this will be a gradual roll-out in the area with draught beer coming in and possibly some 22oz bottles as well. Throughout the rest of the year, expect to see the full line of 6-packs along with specialties and draught as well.

If you just can’t wait until January, you can experience a small piece of Deschutes next week. Deschutes brewer Brian Faivre will be visiting the iTap Soulard on Monday, December 5th starting at 7PM. It’ll be just an informal meet and greet as Brian isn’t able to get us any beer just yet.  But it’ll be a good opportunity for you to pick the brain of an outstanding brewer and for us to show some support for Deschutes’ upcoming roll-out.

The beer scene in this town keeps getting better and better, and with Deschutes making their arrival we’re just that much closer to beervana.
