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.

Fantastic tour, excellent state-of-the art pristine brewery, implementation of "green" technologies and principles, great samples at the end. Got to meet one of the VPs, too, very nice man and well-run operation.

Loved the tour. One of the best brewery tours that Iíve been on. Got to try a couple of brewery-exclusive beers after the tour. The only downside with Boulevard is that you have to book a tour so far in advance to get in.

Boulevard is the real deal. I was fortunate to have been invited on a VIP tour, and I came away very impressed. The facilities are first rate and their products are approaching the level of quality at more highly regarded breweries. I would compare Saison Brett with any saison brewed in Belgium.

Boulevard is a former microbrewery (now too big to qualify by that name) that has learned the value of marketing. They have a fantastic tour with a dark, speakeasy-esque tasting room with a large variety of both their regular beers in addition to experimental brews as well. I was glad to have gone here and recommend for you to stop by if youíre in town.

Its free, but youíd better book in advance. Spots to tour the brewery fill up months ahead of time. You get to tour their old and new facilities and both are impressive. A KC landmark at this point. Their smokestack series is one of the best lines in the midwest.

Did a tour and a function. Physical plant is quite nice, great views of the city from the 3rd floor. They only carry their own of course but it is a good selection nonetheless. Their big numbers however were not on tap. Parking lot security is good if you are there for a function. Food was good but we are talking finger food so I may not have seen their best work. Since it is an all you can drink, the value will differ but with a drive home I think most people were careful not to over do it.

Last-minute trip to KC,MO meant I had no chance at reserving a spot on the tour, but I showed up when they opened on the saturday I wanted to tour, and they put me in the tour. I think that could happen any time someone wants to go... Fun to see, sampled 3 of their year-round, and 1 smokestack series (one not yet released to the public). Good selection of products in the gift shop for great prices. Definitely recommend this.
