If you claim Kansas City as your hometown, you have heard of the Nutcracker.

As a child, dressing up and attending the Tchaikovsky’s holiday classic “The Nutcracker” with my grandmother and mother, will forever be one of my most cherished and celebrated wintertime family traditions. As an adult, I continue this Kansas City tradition with my daughter and mother.

This year, I intend on shaking things up a bit. Before heading home after enjoying “The Nutcracker” at the Kauffman Center, we will stop by the all-new Boulevard tap room to enjoy anther Kansas City favorite, the Nutcracker Ale.

Boulevard Brewing Co. introduced this winter specialty beer back in 1998. Since then, Kansas Citians and beyond have been praising this hearty warming brew, calling it, “Quite a great holiday brew.”

This is what Boulevard has to say about their Winter Warmer.

“Nutcracker Ale is Boulevard’s holiday gift for real beer lovers. This hearty, warming brew is a classic winter ale, deep amber in color, with hints of molasses balanced by the spiciness of Chinook hops.”

We here at Barley & Hops Craft Candles call it perfect brewery candle material. Perfectly timed with Boulevard’s November 1, 2016 Nutcracker Ale holiday launch, Boulevard will also be introducing their Nutcracker Ale brewery candle and artisan soap line made in collaboration with Barley & Hops Craft Candles.Rich

This holiday season, indulge in the rich aromas of maple, caramel malt, and sweet toffee with the warmth of toasted hazelnut. The Boulevard Brewing Co’s Nutcracker Ale artisan brewery candle is truly the ultimate Winter Warmer.
