Monday, July 10th, 2017

jambandbeer 300x178 Boulevard Releases Jam BandBoulevard is a KC staple when it comes to beer. So when they say they are releasing a new beer and they want 3SG to play at the release party, 3SG says YES! The party happens Sunday July 16th at Boulevard Rec Center. Tye-dye your own Jam Band tank top, try the PB&J (Heirloom Bakery and Hearth Crunchy Sunshine Granola Nutter Butter + a 5oz of Jam Band), and of course 3SG will be playing from 12-4.

Here’s a breakdown of the new beer from Boulevard’s Jeremy Danner:

Jam Band, our newest Smokestack Series seasonal beer, debuts starting in the Greater Kansas City Area on July 10th with other cities to follow soon. Available exclusively on draft, 1/6 bbl kegs of Jam Band will soon ship throughout our distribution footprint.

Featuring humongous fruit character contributed by blueberry, red raspberry and tart cherry juices blended into the beer at the end of fermentation, Jam Band is built upon a fairly simple base beer composed of two-row malted barley with a small percentage of acidulated malt that provides a subtle, crisp tartness. Minimally hopped with Topaz to provide balance, Jam Band truly is all about showcasing bright, tart fruit.

Jam Band pours a deep ruby and opens with aromas of dark berries, melon and subtle citrus. Minimal, supporting malt sweetness provides a platform from which blueberry, red raspberry and tart cherry sing resulting in a slightly tart, easy-drinking summer beer that begs for an encore.

ABV – 7.0%
IBUs – 6
Pairings – Crème brulee, angel food cake, creamy cheeses, light/citrusy salads, grilled pork chops, strawberry shortcake, sherbet, crunchy grooves
