    Boulevardia Announces Brewery Lineup For Taps & Tastes

    Posted February 20, 2019

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Organizers of Boulevardia, the two-day Kansas City urban street festival, are excited to announce the highly anticipated lineup of breweries for its “Taps & Tastes” beer and food sampling event, which will take place on the Saturday of the festival, June 15. Each year nearly sixty brewery principals and brewers participate in the highly sought-after experience at the festival. Taps & Tastes will take place indoors in Hale Arena at the American Royal Center located just south of the main stage at Boulevardia. Tickets for Taps & Tastes will go on sale with all other ticket packages at 10 a.m. CST on Wednesday, February 27.

    "A big piece of our partnership with Boulevardia is playing host to Taps & Tastes," said Jeremy Danner, Boulevard Brewing Company ambassador brewer. "It’s an honor to welcome folks from our favorite breweries around the country to Kansas City to enjoy amazing beer, food and music over Father’s Day weekend."

    Two ticket packages are available to Taps & Tastes: a general admission entry for $85, giving patrons three-hour access to the event (4 p.m. – 7 p.m.), and an early admission entry for $115 (3 p.m. – 7 p.m.), providing guests an extra hour of sampling prior to the general admission time. Both options give guests an experience of unlimited beer and food sampling, a keepsake tasting glass and general admission to Boulevardia on Saturday, June 15.
