Boulevard Brewing Co.’s summer Smokestack Series seasonal, Reverb Imperial Pilsner, will start hitting store shelves July 9 and be on tap at bars across the metro.

Boulevard introduced Reverb in summer 2012 and says it has a starkly simple recipe - Pilsner malt and Saaz hops - combined with a “painstakingly complex brewing process” to give Reverb a “subtle elegance.”

Brewers add hops at the beginning of the boil so they seep for a much longer time, amping up the hop aroma and flavor.

Boulevard recommends pairing it with grilled seafood, chicken or a variety of cheeses.
