PW Pizza Boulevard Dinner

Last month's PW Pizza dinner featured Boulevard Brewing from Kansas City and every time I hear their name, I think how I should take their brewery tour when I'm over there. Even though it's not that far away, I really don't know much about their beers so it was nice to sample a few.

We started with the 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat with a salad...

For some reason, Boulevard seems to have the hoppiest beers. Even in their "light" beers! I actually enjoyed the second "light" beer, the Boss Tom's Gold Bock, over the 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat. Not only was the Boss Tom my favorite beer of the night, it was part of the best pairing with the Roasted Garlic Shrimp Pizza, which was on my favorite Honey Wheat Crust. Unfortuantely, I didn't get a picture of it, only the piggy one...

Of course, they paired the pork pizza with the IPA, the stronger flavors, while the Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale was paired with the Peach & Mango Tart.

As a special treat, they also invited us downstairs to check out the 21st Street Brewer's Bar for a 2 oz sample of the Brett Saison, which was outstanding. Hopefully, that one will be available for a while...
