Coffee Ale comes out next week

The Roasterie and Boulevard’s collaboration beer hits shelves and taps on Tuesday

Coffee Ale, a limited edition beer that Boulevard brewed in collaboration with The Roasterie, will be in local liquor stores and bars starting Tuesday.


Coffee Ale, a limited edition collaboration beer from Boulevard Brewing Company and The Roasterie, will be released in Kansas City starting next Tuesday, March 19.

The beer, a reddish amber brew spiked with Ethiopian Sidamo coffee from the Kansas City coffee roaster, in the works for months. Boulevard initially planned to release the beer in early March — roughly the same time its wildly popular Chocolate Ale was released in 2011 and 2012 — but a delay in approval from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau pushed the release date back a couple weeks.

Coffee Ale will be sold at local liquor stores and bars that carry Boulevard’s small-batch Smokestack Series beers, which come in kegs or 750-milliliter bottles. Boulevard marketing communications manager Julie Weeks said some stores and bars will get the beer as early as Tuesday, while others will get their shipments later in the week. So if you’re one of those people who fiend for rare Boulevard beers, call before you go.
