Boulevardia Announces Brewer Lineup

Kansas City — Announced earlier this week, tickets for the inaugural beer, food and music event, “Boulevardia,” will go on sale at 10a.m. on March 5th at As part of the urban street fair, the exclusive “Taps & Tastes” craft beer sampling experience will take place on Saturday, June 14, from 3-7pm. Comprised of principals and brewmasters from more than 35 national and international craft breweries along with twelve local restaurants and Kansas City culinary stars, Taps & Tastes guests will enjoy unlimited beer and food sampling, along with a keepsake tasting glass. Tickets are $75 (includes Saturday general admission Boulevardia ticket too) and like other beer festivals, only a limited quantity will be available.

“Kansas City already has great beer festivals throughout the year, so to make ours unique, we reached out to brewery brethren who don’t usually pour at local events to be a part of this experience,” said Steven Pauwels, Boulevard’s Brewmaster and Boulevardia supporter. “Guests will be able to raise a glass of flavorful beers with some of our industry’s finest brewers and fellow friends of other local breweries.”
