KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Just hours before the end of 2014, Boulevard brewery celebrated a milestone. A special case of beer was delivered in grand style.

The Boulevard beer truck had an escort from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office late Tuesday afternoon. The precious cargo on board was a significant case delivered to Kelly's in Westport. It was case number one million!  And to show their appreciation, Central States Beverage bought everyone a beer.

“Just a way to say thank you to Kansas City, our retail partners and all the fans who are really responsible for this success,” said Jon Poteet with CSB.

Each guest at Kelly's got a drink ticket for a free Boulevard beer.
