Boulevard was one of the highlights of my recent visits to MO, OK, & KS. This in a large but beautiful brewery In KC, MO with a lot of history...a regional brewery thatís been around a long time with a past of making macro beers. They have been making great craftbeers for sometime now however. I had a couple of flights of all their beers an loved most...especially the Single and Double Wide IPAís. The Smokestack Series beers are great to try too. When I was there on a Saturday the place was very crowded and all the tours were booked for the day...so plan ahead. Fortunately they are already in the process of expanding the tasting room...so a more pleasant experience is coming soon. Definitely visit if in the area. Side note: after flying some of their beers back to NJ...I found out they just started distributing in NJ the month a returned!

Awesome tour, great atmosphere and a tasting of their beers after. Their tasting room had a really nice feel to it and the staff are really friendly.

Cant believe i didnt rate this place. Toured this in early 2012. I wasnt able to do the brewery tour, but i had a few samples in the taproom. very nice gift shop but its a little pricey. VEry friendly staff and lots of cool showcases of the history of kansas city brewery companies. Worth a stop!

Took the free tour and really enjoyed it. The girl who led the tour was great. The tour itself was cool in that we saw the bottling line, and it featured a healthy dose of history (not to mention the history hanging on the walls all throughout the brewery). Everyone over 21 receives 4 tokens good for samples after the tour. The selection was standard Boulevard product, but only an idiot would complain about free beer, right? I want to come back for the Unfiltered Tour.

I have been on a lot of brewery tours. This one is definitely above average. We took the free public one (as it is apparently IMPOSSIBLE to get on the "unfiltered" tour). Our girl was bubbly and really knowledgeable. They show you the bottling line and the event spaces are really nice. Do it if youíre in town because itís free, short, informative, and they give you a free tasting at the end. One thing to note is that although it says "first come first serve" on the website and that reservations are only needed on Saturday - IGNORE THIS. YOU CAN MAKE A RESERVATION FOR ANY TOUR ANY DAY OF THE WEEK, AND YOU SHOULD. We showed up 40 minutes early on a Sunday for the 2PM. It was full, so we got 3:30 tickets. Those were gone by 1:45PM. Other than being pretty annoyed at how the tours fill up (normally first come first serve means people have to wait in a physical line. Just provide the proper info!), it was a really nice tour. We WILL be back for the unfiltered tour. We were slightly disappointed that really nothing special was in the tasting room.

The free tour is well worth the reservation. They take you through the brewery itself as well as their bottling facility and various rental halls featuring lots of memorabilia. You get several free tasters at the end of the tour, but I was hoping more of them would be either experimental brews or otherwise hard-to-find selections. The staff is friendly and they also have a great gift shop.

Been on tours of all sort a few times. Visited the brewery a few times, and the brewery store. Blvd is an awesome brewery and they treat people right. bar tap often has something experimental on tap. Gift shop is nice. I would definitely recommend a tour for anyone.

Recent tour. Book this tour well in advance. Interesting but still a typical brewery tour. They will include a number of samples after the tour. Nice gift shop. Worth a visit.

Stopped thinking there would be a taproom for visitors, but was just for tour-goers. Not their fault, but disappointing nonetheless. But, thanks to a kind employee, we were still given a couple of small pours. Overall, from a glance around, seemed to be a pretty average brewery. Place was packed from the tour. Selection on tap was fairly lackluster with a few one-offs. Donít know if I would go out of my way for a tour other than to have a few pours.

Massive, commercial, hi tech place, at least compared to the 10 barrel one man operations Iím used to seeing in Belgium. Friendly volunteer tour guides, and of course free beer at the end. Worth a stop. I am in total shock, though, that the stupid and crappy Missouri beer laws donít allow them to sell beer at the brewery. That needs to change. Thanks very much to theisti for getting me onto the tour at very short notice.
