As we celebrate the beginning of a new year, we’re excited to introduce a brand-new year-round beer that will join our canned and draft lineups, Space Camper Cosmic IPA. The culmination of over a year of creative exploration of a relatively new take on India Pale Ales, Space Camper saw first life in our Tours & Recreation Center Beer Hall as TEST – El Dorado IPA. Boulevard fans (and BLVDians alike) loved the beer so much that we knew we were on to something.
Space Camper Cosmic IPA is an exhilarating initiation into a mind-bending alternate universe of India Pale Ales. Our brewers employ massive hop additions at the end of the boil, and during fermentation, to minimize upfront bitterness and create a juicy IPA bursting with tropical fruit flavors and aromas of nectar and citrus.

Your best bet is to give your favorite local beer spots a call to see if they know if/when they’ll receive Space Camper.
