I picked up some Boulevard Wheat the last time I traveled through KC. I thought it was pretty good. I still prefer Blue Moon (which wasn't a Coors product until they bought it, BTW). Schlafly from St. Louis was good too. I also like New Belgium Blue Paddle and Hoegaarden Belgian White. Most Nut Brown ales are also really good and ... :-# stop me now. :wink:


Well, I wouldn't think it would be a Coors product before they bought it. . . :-k

Clarification: It used to be from Blue Moon Brewery from Denver near Coors Stadium I believe. Blue Moon was a true microbrew that was bought by a mass producer because it was SO GOOD. =D>
