[SOCCER BUSINESS] To commemorate Sporting Kansas City's 2013 MLS Cup title, Boulevard Brewing Company will make Sporting Kansas City Championship Ale, a limited release beer from its Smokestack Series.
According to the Kansas City brewery, Sporting Kansas City Championship Ale will be a crisp, refreshing Saison-style ale, featuring late hopping with Mandarina Bavaria, a new German hop with distinct tangerine and citrus flavors.
Similar to other one-off releases in Boulevard's Smokestack Series, only a limited amount of beer can be produced and released. The Kansas City brewery plans to distribute about 2,000 cases of the 750ml bottles throughout the Kansas City area. The beer will hit shelves in mid-June, and information on sampling opportunities will be announced in the coming weeks.
"We are excited to share this unique collaboration with fans of both the brewery and the team," said Jeremy Ragonese, Boulevard's director of marketing. "Despite a tight production schedule, everyone at Boulevard was committed to recognizing a remarkable season with a special release. Sporting KC has been a great hometown partner for us, and we look forward to celebrating their wins for years to come."
