Holiday Season 2023 – Day 17 – Brewhouse One from Boulevard Brewing

We head to the Midwest and Boulevard Brewing for their holiday Brewhouse One offering….

“Barrel-aged for 11 months in Tomcat Gin barrels, then rested on fresh juniper berries for 3 months, this quintessential holiday ale features crisp holiday spices with clean spruce essence. In addition to the pine and juniper, the wintry spice character is abundant, with hints of allspice, clove, and stonefruit esters, with light berry notes on the finish. All in all, at 9% ABV, it’s the perfect beer to bring to a party!”


Cocktails and beer can go hand-in-hand and Gigantic is doing it right. Primarily, they have learned how to use Old Tom gin barrels to re-create flavor profiles of a drink like the bramble. Now I am not a fan of blackberries IRL, but as a flavor, it really works for me and I hope to see #97 in L.A. stores.
