Drink of the Week: Boulevard Brewing Co.'s KC Pils

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

This Spring Break, like many of my peers, I got my drink on, but I didn’t go hard on the beaches of Cabo. Instead, I ended an afternoon of touring the Boulevard Brewing Co.’s facilities in Kansas City, Missouri, sampling a number of delicious beers in the brewery’s tasting room. It was like taking a trip to Disney Land and buying Mickey Mouse ears, except “It’s a Small World” was replaced by a mechanized bottling line and the ears were beers. 

THE EXPERIENCE: The barkeep asked what my favorite beer was. I said I was embarrassed. He said don’t worry, he drinks Busch Light. Relieved, I said I did, too, and he introduced me to KC Pils, a delicious, easy-drinking lager full of smooth flavor and bundled in a medium amber color. It’s like Busch Light found a new job, started going to the gym, and turned its life around. 

ADVICE: Find this where you can. I picked up a few bottles on the way out. I can’t imagine something this godly nectar wouldn’t pair well with. Barbecue sounds especially good, which makes sense. Kansas City is in the name.
