Left For Dead is a spirit distilled entirely from Boulevard Beer with each batch utilizing a different Boulevard beer, or multiple beers in some cases. Since we only use beer that Boulevard would have otherwise disposed of, the type of beer and the quantity is unpredictable, thus the number of bottles of each batch of Left For Dead are extremely limited. In this ongoing project, each batch of Left For Dead tastes and smells as unique as the beers from which they were distilled. The final product is bottled at 89 proof, a nod to 1989, the year Boulevard was founded.
At the intersection of Kansas City brewing and distilling, you have Left For Dead, a spirit distilled entirely from Boulevard Brewing Co.’s beer. Our Head Distiller Nathan Perry joined our team after five years of working in the lab for Boulevard. From working there, he knew the brewery had to consistently dump large amounts of beer for a variety reasons. There the idea was sparked - turning beer that would have otherwise been ‘left for dead’ into a new product, a distilled spirit.
