Tasting Room – Blonde Ale and Hefeweizen

Spring 2019 brings a fresh rotation to our Sample Twelve Pack featuring two beers from our Tasting Room. Created to allow our brewers the chance to experiment with new styles, recipes, ingredients and processes, the line of Tasting Room beers also gives Boulevard fans the chance to try beers that were previously only available in our Tasting Room or Beer Hall. Joining our newest year-round beer, Space Camper Cosmic IPA, are Tasting Room – Blonde Ale, Tasting Room – Hefeweizen and a surprise blast from the (recent) past, Flora Obscura Dry-Hopped Porter.
