It’s old news now, but this week it was announced Duvel Moortgat is buying Kansas City brewery Boulevard Brewing Company. The owner of Boulevard, John McDonald, posted a letter about the deal on the Boulevard website. Boulevard has experienced exponential growth over the past few years and beers such as Tank 7 are probably most of the reason why. Duvel purchased Ommegang in 2003 and I have seen no drop in quality in those beers over the past 10 years, if anything they just keep getting better and better.
We often cringe when a business is purchased by a larger entity, but in the case of Duvel they seem to have the right idea. Duvel took Ommegang to another level and I hope the same is true with Boulevard!
