Boulevard Brewing Company released their Super Bowl LIV commemorative brew for Chiefs Kingdom.
Chiefs fans! This has not been as celebratory a time as I expected. With the Chiefs having won Super Bowl LIV (drink), I thought we would certainly be partying for weeks. Unfortunately, things got shut down thanks to that COVID-19.
One of those things shut down was the release of Boulevard Brewing Company‘s commemorative beer. Boulevard has a history of brewing special release beers to celebrate great sporting events in Kansas City—see the Crown Town Ale, released after the Kansas City Royals won the World Series in 2015. When the Chiefs officially hoisted the Lombardi, it was only a matter of time before we were hoisting our glasses filled with a special beer from Boulevard.
The release, however, was delayed due to the pandemic. Rest assured, it has now been made available. On Monday, June 22, Boulevard released the Worth the Wait beer. This brew is an Imperial Red Ale outfitted with a red and yellow label which reminds us of the long 50-year stretch between Super Bowl victories. It comes in their signature Smokestack Series bottles and is available for a limited time.
I had the opportunity to make my way to the nearest liquor store to pick up a couple bottles, and of course, offered to pick some up for my family as well. My dad wanted 6 bottles, I assume to give as gifts to his friends who, like him, are not local. I walked in with my total order standing at 8. Friends, this is truly a limited release because I was limited to 2 per customer. I have no problem with this – so I grabbed my husband and gathered my four, bought them, took them to my car, and came back in for my next set.
I’m waiting for the perfect evening when I can pop one of these babies open. I sure hope this was truly “Worth the Wait.” Cheers!
