Boulevard Releasing Noble Prize Imperial Pilsner

Noble Prize Imperial Pilsner, our latest addition to our year-round lineup of Smokestack Series beers, debuts in the Greater Kansas City Area this week with other regions to follow soon!

Inspired by our very first collaboration project, Noble Prize Imperial Pilsner is brewed using a starkly simple recipe combined with a painstakingly complex brewing process resulting in an imperial pilsner of subtle elegance and delicately balanced contrasts. A grain bill composed of 100% Pilsner malt makes a clear, yet restrained statement, answered by Saaz hop bitterness, echoes of which linger in the dry, crisp finish.

Pouring brilliant golden in color, Noble Prize opens with aromas of bready, honey-like malt sweetness with subtle floral and black pepper notes from the use of Saaz and Mandarina Bavaria hops. With the flavor of freshly baked bread, the 100% pilsner malt base provides a crisp platform to showcase spicy herbal and earthy noble hop tones provided by first wort and end of boil hopping. The delicate, simple malt bill and cooler than normal fermentation temperature, 49 F as opposed to 55 F for KC Pils, result in an incredibly balanced, complex beer born from an amazingly simple recipe.

At 7.5% ABV and 32 IBUs, Noble Prize Imperial Pilsner is an excellent partner to aromatic cheeses, chicken satay with spicy peanut sauce, hot chicken wings, shellfish, spicy tamales and steak au poivre.

Available on draft during a brief introductory period, Noble Prize Imperial Pilsner will be available year-round in four-packs of 12 ounce bottles in areas that typically see Smokestack Series year-round beers including Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale, The Calling, The Sixth Glass and Bourbon Barrel Quad.---
