Boulevard’s First Fridays Collection is a series of exceptional beers at the intersection of experimental art and established science, a curation of cutting edge, artisanal, barrel-fermented and wood-aged ales. The beers commemorate the company’s history and look to its future.
Multiple vintages of imperial brown ales and imperial stouts aged from 15 to 24 months in bourbon, rye and maple syrup-filled whiskey casks come together in this complex, sticky, boozy behemoth of a beer, showcasing the barrel shepherding and blending skills of our brilliant brewers.
