About this Brewery
Founded in 1989, Boulevard Brewing Company has grown to become the largest specialty brewer in the Midwest. Our mission is simple: to produce fresh, flavorful beers using the finest traditional ingredients and the best of both old and new brewing techniques. We offer eight beers year-round: Pale Ale, Unfiltered Wheat Beer, Single-Wide I.P.A., Amber Ale, Boulevard Pilsner, Bully! Porter, and Dry Stout. Watch for our seasonal beers: Irish Ale in early spring, Boss Tom's Golden Bock in the late spring, ZON in summer, Bob’s ’47 in the fall, and our winter holiday treat, Nutcracker Ale. The Smokestack Series, our line of artisanal beers available since 2007, includes both permanent selections and limited edition brews.
The Boulevard story begins in 1988, when founder John McDonald started construction of the brewery in a turn-of-the-century brick building on Kansas City’s historic Southwest Boulevard. A vintage Bavarian brewhouse was installed, and the first batches of beer were produced in the fall of 1989. That November, the first keg of Boulevard Pale Ale was delivered—in the back of John's pickup truck—to a restaurant just a few blocks away.
The popularity of our beers has since spread throughout the Midwest and in a few select markets around the country. From Hot Springs, Arkansas to Rapid City, South Dakota, Boulevard beers have become favorites, known for their full flavor, distinctive character, and unsurpassed quality.
