A local brewery has gained some extra bragging rights.
Kansas City-based Boulevard Brewing Co. landed on a list of the “Best Brewers in the World.” RateBeer.com picked the top 100, which represent “a small portion of the top 1% of brewers worldwide.” They hail from places such as England, the Netherlands, Belgium and California.
Boulevard ranked No. 53 on the list. Last year, the 30-year-old brewery was ranked as the 69th-best brewery in the world. Boulevard has ranked in RateBeer’s top 100 brewers every year of the last decade, including in 2012 when it achieved its highest ranking — No. 33.
