For Pete's Sake

Boulevard Brewing will team with Sporting KC on apparel and new ‘Sporting Saison’ beer

The Boulevard Brewing Company has a history of toasting Kansas City’s sports teams.

It produced a special beer after Sporting Kansas City won the MLS Cup in 2013. There was also a brew to celebrate the Royals’ run to the World Series.

On Friday, Boulevard and Sporting Kansas City announced a collaboration that will include “co-branded” apparel and, more importantly, a new beer.

In a news release on Sporting KC’s web site, there will be a new Sporting Saison that will be introduced on July 18 when KC takes on Montreal.

Here are the details from the news release: “The saison will be a limited released, draft-only version similar to the Championship Ale. The traditional farmhouse ale is described as a refreshing, easy-drinking beer with a light citrus flavor with subtle spicy notes, medium body and a minimal hop presence.”
