Beer Review: Boulevard Brewing Co. The Sixth Glass
Style: Quadrupel aka Belgian Dark Strong Ale
Fun Fact About the Brewery:
Boulevard Brewing Co. is old as far as microbreweries go. Founded in 1989 when I was kindergarten, their web site informs me that they are the 2nd largest brewery in all of Missouri! Or Missourah as the locals say it.
Well, my good friend Jim, who has terrible taste in just about everything, claims this is one of his very favorite beers. He is no expert on Belgian beers or any beers in general. But, this beer has his full-hearted endorsement and he buys it whenever it's on sale at QFC, so take that as you will.
As it so happens, I pretty much agree that the Sixth Glass is really, really good. The name and the little devil guy on the label makes me think that the brewers want you to have this brew as your sixth beer of the night, but at 10.5% the joke will probably be on you the next morning. It comes in both 22 oz. bombers and regular, normal people sized 12 oz. bottles.
