Overview The largest independent brewery in Missouri, Boulevard has focused on supplying the Midwest with beer, rather than expanding its reach. But that doesn’t make this a small operation; it’s the 8th largest craft brewery, with capacity to move up several spots as sales grow.

Flavors and aromas Lemon and floral hop notes populate a light nose. There’s up-front, forward bitterness here, but it is soft and smooth, with crackery malt in a body with appropriate weight. Carbonation is a little low for an American pale ale, which along with woody flavor hops give this a character that reminds us of an English take on Anchor Steam.
