Boulevard was #3 of 5 KC area breweries we visited on a beer and BBQ weekend in March 2017. Located very near downtown, close to the World War I museum. This was one of the best brewery tap rooms I've ever been to. The layout, spacing, displays, service, etc were fantastic. In many ways, it's like visiting a beer museum. Very cool. I was a bit disappointed in the beers we tried (we focused on the experimental options that aren't available back in Ohio) so that was the only ding on my rating. If you only have time for one brewery when visiting KC, Boulevard should be it!

The upstairs bar was inventive mix of rustic with a modern twist to KS and KC. I am a local I should know, right. I like the laid back atmosphere that was focused on enjoying beer with friends without judgement.

This was a must-visit on my trip to KC, and I am glad I made it there. I didn't get to go on the tour, as they do sell out weeks in advance, but when we stopped in they gave us a couple of tokens for the tasting room for samplers, which was much appreciated. I can get a lot of their packaged beers in my home area, which is good because I enjoy most of their stuff. Sure, they have had a few misses over the years, but more good than bad by far, and I do like that they are constantly making new beers, even if not all of them are my preferred styles. They know what they're doing here, and some of their small-batch brews sold in bombers are very high quality. They're the most popular craft brewer in the Midwest for a good reason.

Being nearby downtown helps. Being nearby the World War I Memorial and old Union Station made the idea of visiting even easier despite being on a clock to hit the Royal's game later that evening. The Boulevard taproom itself isn't the easiest place to locate, but getting there rewards you of not only a great taphouse with a great feel, plenty of people behind the bar and benched along the numerous tables, but an exciting gift shop which also sells bottled beers for home. The bar is easy to spot, well staffed, with a long taplist that's easy to read. 22 different taps on the menu, pouring from the Lemon Ginger Radler and Bully! Porter, to The Sixth Glass and Funky Pumpkin. Bottles available as well. There were certainly a few more things pouring exclusively at the taproom than what I could find in Orange County. I also took home a mix-six and a piece of glassware at the gift shop. With my short stint, I wish I could have stayed much longer, though I must remember to go easy on Arthur Bryant's next time.
