A Note on This Beer
Aged not once, but TWICE in fresh Templeton Rye Whiskey barrels, Boulevard Brewing’s 14% ABV Rye on Rye on Rye Ale is like a slice of pecan pie chased with a shot of bourbon.
With tastes of flambéed pralines, Derby pie, and the unmistakable flare of vanilla-rich whiskey, Boulevard’s latest limited release is a delicious sum of its parts -- all rye, all the time.
Beloved by top-shelf liquor craftsman for its flourish of woody oak spice and cherry notes, rye delivers succulent complexity to this barrel-aged brew. Flavors of toasted nuts dwell within this grain, infusing the base like caramelized pecan brittle. The first round of barrel-aging amplifies with boozy heat and bread pudding richness. The second aging goes even further, electrifying with more of the oak’s cinnamon spice and the dry finish that made Templeton’s famous.
Enhancing Boulevard’s highly-rated sister beer Rye on Rye with a double-soaking in first use barrels, this beer takes barrel-aged fans on a honey-laced booze ride through sweet Southern delicacies. Earning an outrageous 4.25 on Untappd, this limited release whisky bomb proves that when it comes to rye -- more is always the answer.
