Boulevard Brewing has arrived!

More craft beer hits the shelves in Newport.

It’s always exciting when a new brewery gets distributed in Rhode Island, but Boulevard Brewing is one of the big breweries whose absence was noticeable, especially for beer drinkers who’d spent any time elsewhere in the country.

For those of you who have never heard of Boulevard, it’s part of Duvel Moortgat USA. Duvel, as some of you might remember, is one of Belgium’s most famous breweries. They’ve expanded stateside with Ommegang in New York and they purchased Boulevard in 2013. While Ommegang maintains a Belgian-style identity, Boulevard does everything.
