Chocolate Beer by Boulevard = delicious!


I have to say that until yesterday I didn’t even know that the Kansas City, MO Brewery Boulevard was producing a chocolate flavored beer.  Which after talking with several people in the KC area, I was apparently the only one not keeping up with the local news.  According to some fellow patrons I spoke to, people were calling all over the city to be able to get their hands on a bottle or pint of the limited edition brew.  So lucky for me, I happened to be at a Happy Hour business meeting (at Harry’s Country Club in the Rivermarket area of Kansas City) and our server asked if we were interested in having a pint of the Chocolate Ale.  This was the first I had heard of it!  She informed us that as far she knew they were the only bar left in the city with a keg!  So of course we had to try it!

Now I don’t mind paying a little more for a great beer, but at $8.99 a pint I thought, this better be awesome.  Especially when I could get two Boulevard Wheats for the price of one Chocolate Ale.  But for the sake of drinking local and trying something new, I went for it.

From the moment she set the beers on the table we could smell the aroma of chocolate coming from the beer.  I should also mention that although I knew it was an ale, I still expected it to look like a stout, which it did not!  It was light, refreshing and delicious!  This chocolate brew didn’t just have a hint of chocolate, it was like drinking an amazing chocolate desert, but with fewer calories and it came with a buzz!  Awesome!

Deliciousness in a glass

So I’m not going to bore you with all the details, which you can read in other articles online, but I will tell you that this amazing creation was a partnership between two local Kansas City companies, Boulevard Brewery & chocolatier Christopher Elbow.  According to reports they only made 19,200 bottles of the chocolate ale and don’t plan to produce any more.  So if you are a lucky one that gets to try the brew CHEERS!  To the rest, well I guess all you can do is grab an ale, a bar of chocolate, close your eyes and see if you can channel the deliciousness of the Boulevard Chocolate Ale.

Remember to Travel Global, Drink Local!
