Our brewers are a creative, adventurous bunch, each with their own ideas and inspiration. And the Brewer’s Choice series is a showcase of all the talented folks on our brewing team. As new Brewer's Choice beers are released into the world, we'll continue to highlight the faces, minds, goals and efforts behind each one, so YOU can get to know the brilliance behind the scenes.
SPRING 2022 PACK
With almost two years brewing at Boulevard, Corrine Georges knew she was ready to brew something out of the ordinary:
"I wanted to make the Carrot Saison for people to try something they may have never tried in beer before. Being that it was released around Easter it seemed like a fun ingredient to add. I went to college in Denver and was inspired by the brewery scene out there, where unique ingredients like this are common in beer."
Carrot Saison is available exclusively in the 2022 Adventure Pack, and when asked what kind of adventure Corrine would like to go on she said:
"For my next adventure I’d love to visit Glacier National Park and experience some of the gorgeous hikes and kayaking! And of course bring my binoculars for birding."Learn More
Created by brewer Adam Seal, Experimental IPA – HBC-586 is the perfect just-cut-the-lawn, soaking-up-the-sun beer. Adam recently accepted a brewer position with our friends down the street at City Barrel Brewing, but his Brewer’s Choice beer will live in our Spring Adventure Pack as a mark of his time at Boulevard.
This session hazy IPA features experimental hop variety HBC 586. Typically used as an addition in the whirlpool or dry-hopping, this varietal provides a tropical fruit aroma of mango, guava, lychee, citrus, and flavors of mango, orange, and pepper spice. At 4.2% ABV, you'll love this IPA to sip throughout the hot summer days.
We appreciate Adam’s innovation with us and we wish him all the best at City Barrel Brewing, we can’t wait to see what he creates next!MORE BEER DETAILS
FALL 2021 PACK
Though Steven Manfull has been brewing professionally for 4 years now, he's a relative newcomer to Boulevard, having been here just over a year. His creation, Experimental 25-38 IPA, is available exclusively in our 2021 Adventure Pack variety 12-pack. We'll let Steven take it from here:
"The inspiration for the Experimental IPA is primarily from the exclusive hops we sourced. 25-38 is a resiny, herbal hop with big aromas of pine and wood and undertones of citrus. The experimental IPA is a sister to Single Wide IPA, both utilizing our house ale yeast and healthy doses of Centennial. EXP IPA is double dry hopped for the full expression of our hops. Expect tropical notes up front followed by resin and pine in the mid pallet and a clean finish."
And inspired by the Adventure Pack, what adventure would Steven want to go on? An archery elk hunt in Colorado or Idaho during the rut.MORE BEER DETAILS
FALL 2021 PACK
With 8 years of brewing under his belt, 2.5 of those at Boulevard, David Rose developed the Red Rye with seasonality in mind:
"I wanted my beer to be malty and rich but easy-drinking, something to usher in cooler fall weather. The recipe features a combination of a special German red barley malt and an American rye malt, which produces a beer that is complex, full-bodied, and crisp."
With Red Rye available exclusively in the 2021 Adventure Pack variety 12-pack, we asked David what kind of adventure he'd love to go on:
"I would take a trip to visit Vancouver Island. I'd spend a few days in Victoria before on a hiking trip through the mountains and forests."MORE BEER DETAILS
