Warm up Tuesday with free Boulevard beer in Westport

Here’s one way to warm up on this frigid winter day: Free Boulevard beer at Kelly’s Westport Inn.

Central States Beverage, the local company that distributes Boulevard in the Kansas City area, is celebrating selling 1 million cases of the beer in 2014 by doling out one free Boulevard to every person (21 and older, of course) who walks into Kelly’s between 4 and 6 p.m. on Tuesday. The free beer tickets will be handed out at the door of the bar at 500 Westport Road.

Boulevard founder John McDonald also will be there at 4 p.m. to symbolically deliver a case of Boulevard beer to Kelly’s owner Kyle Kelly.

This is the first time Central States Beverage has distributed 1 million cases of Boulevard in a calendar year.
