KANSAS CITY, Missouri – Boulevard Brewing Company is excited to announce its second collaboration with fellow Midwestern company Foundry Distilling. The first collaboration between the two companies, Midnight Ritual, was such a success,they decided to go for another round. The star of the newest collaboration, The SixthGlass American Malt Whiskey, is produced from the mash bill of Boulevard’s Belgian-style quadrupel ale, The Sixth Glass. This brand-new whiskey is 100 proof and available for a limited time.
“Boulevard’s unique, great tasting beers inspire us to get creative in the distilling world,” said Scott Bush, owner of Foundry Distilling Co. “The final version of The SixthGlass whiskey is bold at 100 proof, softened by the pronounced candy flavor andaroma which came from The Sixth Glass wort (unfermented beer base) used in itscreation.”
In honor of its official release, Boulevard will host a launch party on Friday, September 9, in the Rec Deck, located on the fourth floor of the Tours & Rec Center. The event will kick off with a full hour of featuring distillers from Foundry and representatives from Boulevard. This is open exclusively to those who pre-order the whiskey through Boulevard’s gift shop. The remainder of the event is open to the public from 6-8p.m. and will feature a special Sixth Glass menu including a whiskey cocktail,special side-by-side pours of The Sixth Glass beer and whiskey, as well as a “pig& fig” flatbread. DJ Skeme will also spin tunes from 5 to 7 p.m.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Foundry Distilling on our second collaboration,” said executive vice president of sales and marketing, Bobby Dykstra. “The team at Foundry did an incredible job creating a smooth, sippable beverage that brings the familiar flavor and aroma of The Sixth Glass while providing the perfect punch you desire from a high-end whiskey, thanks to using the mash bill from our Belgian Quad.”
The Sixth Glass American Malt Whiskey will be available throughout the Midwest region starting Tuesday, September 6. Preorders are available now through the Boulevard Gift Shop.
