How do you choose what charities are going to participate?
We will invite everyone to nominate their favorite organization for consideration to participate. Each quarter, several employees from Boulevard and one from Ripple Glass will review the nomination forms and narrow it down to three. We will keep all groups that were not selected on file for future consideration.
Why was Boulevard Pilsner changed for this program?
Boulevard Pilsner was originally created and branded as homage to the great brewing tradition in our hometown. Through its rebrand to KC Pils, the lager echoes the same local pride, presented in a new, more visible and memorable way that clearly explains our mission to give back to the community on its label. The updated packaging brings the pilsner back into the Boulevard core family, using the same bottles and closed box format that we utilize for beers such as Unfiltered Wheat Beer, Single-Wide I.P.A., and Pale Ale.
Will KC Pils taste different than Boulevard Pilsner?
Besides subtle changes in the hop character, the recipe from our gold medal winning Boulevard Pilsner was largely unchanged for the new KC Pils.
If the charity I nominate isn’t chosen, will Boulevard help them some other way?
From day one our founder, John McDonald, has been committed to demonstrating our support and devotion to the local community. Boulevard donates beer to hundreds of local organizations for fundraisers throughout the year and provides merchandise and brewery space as auction items on an ongoing basis. If a non-profit you know has an upcoming event, they can request support here.
