Boulevard and Odell tap takeover tonight, Beer KC’s Strong Ale Festival Saturday, and more beer events

The joint Boulevard and Odell 25th anniversary celebration continues tonight with a big tap takeover at Flying Saucer (101 East 13th Street). Boulevard is bringing a killer lineup, including Collaboration No. 4, Harvest Dance, Tank 7, Two Jokers, Saison Brett, Foeder Projekt, Imperial Stout, Silver Anniversary Ale and more favorites. The party starts at 7 p.m.

Saturday afternoon, Beer KC is throwing the fourth annual Strong Ale Fest from 1 to 5 p.m. outside of McCoy’s Public House (4057 Pennsylvania). Tickets cost $35 in advance ($45 on Saturday) and you get pours while they last of 70-plus strong brews from more than 30 breweries. 

Among the breweries serving in Westport are Avery, Bell’s, Boulevard, Firestone Walker, Mikkeller, Stone, Southern Tier and Urban Chestnut. There’s a lot of great stuff slated to be on tap, including 2014 KBS, Bourbon County Stout, Super Doozy, Ten Fidy and Abraxas. Our friends at the KC Beer Blog have the full lineup.

Also, Free State will be on hand pouring Owd Mac’s Imperial Stout (see also: Free State Brewing Co. selling bottles of Owd Mac’s Imperial Stout off its dock November 22). So this is a sneak preview. 

This is a festival in which the words “double” and “imperial” will appear in a lot of titles, so keep that in mind while imbibing. But this sounds like a blast.
