#RoadYogi Recap #2: Boulevard Brewing Company

Although we didn’t have any chances to host Après Yoga events in Kansas City, we made it a point to visit Boulevard Brewing Company during our trip. Not only do we love the infamous Farmhouse Ale, Tank 7, Boulevard Brewing is an institution in KCMO and its a must see destination for beer lovers everywhere.

Après Yoga events founder Denelle took the Boulevard tour on a muggy Monday afternoon back in June and here are some fun facts she learned:

  • The art of brewing beer is 6-10K years old
  • 1960’s & 1970’s-only 44 breweries in U.S.
  • Circa 1990-150 breweries in U.S., also known as “The Dark Days of Beer”
  • Today, there are over 5,500 breweries across the U.S. for an all time high!
  • Boulevard Founder, John MacDonald, had a Beerphiany in Paris with a Belgium beer and he fell in love with all the different kinds of beer
  • Boulevard is now owned by Duvel with Firestone Walker Brewing (Pasa Robles, CA)
  • John MacDonald also started Ripple Recycling Co. in Kansas City
  • 1 barrel of beer brews 31 gallons of beer
  • 90% of beer consumed is in cans / bottles
  • Our Go to Brew: The Infamous Farmhouse Ale, Tank 7

Boulevard, you hold a special place in our hearts! We will most certainly be back to enjoy great brew Après Yoga!
