KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Boulevard Brewing Company is bringing back Chocolate Ale, just in time for another Valentine’s Day.
Brewer Steven Pauwels joined with chocolatier Christopher Elbow last year to make a small batch of the brew that they weren’t certain would be popular.
Needless to say, it was a hit and liquor stores sold out of it quickly. This year the limited- release beer will be available in Kansas City starting Feb. 1, although some chocolate ale lovers found it early in places like Columbia and Wichita.
Boulevard expects it will sell quickly again and warns customers that the company does not have a supply to sell, so don’t come directly to Boulevard looking for it.
It also cautions people not to be tricked into paying too much for it. The retail price is $8.99 a bottle.
