THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! KANSAS CITY DRINKER VOWS TO BOYCOTT BOULEVARD FOR SUPER BOWL DESPITE SEX DISCRIMINATION SCANDAL APOLOGY!!!

A recent social media uproar against an iconic Kansas City brewery still resonates with quite a few local boozehounds. 

Accordingly . . . 

Tonight we contemplate the good intentions of a boozy rant from a Kansas City barfly who is one of the more popular denizens of the midtown drinking scene. 

Here's a snippet of the note sent our day which contradicts the triumphant return of Blvd founder John McDonald . . . 

"So their big mistake was bad PR and not the company's culture??? It (the apology) all seems very orchestrated and without any real motivation to make change. The words are nice but what about promoting women and doing something more substantial than just making a Twitter video? The dismissals are negative and promises about transparency don't mean much when this situation was kept secret for so long. I think people have a tendency to forget about negative situations after they fade out of the news. So Boulevard will take weeks and months to make real changes? Then I will consider buying their product when they make an announcement about their progress. For now, for the Super Bowl and the immediate future, I'm going to take my business elsewhere and I know a lot of people who will be doing the same until we see some evidence that the company had done something besides improve their public relations." 

Given that the craft booze biz is all about image, perception and marketing . . . In this instance the opinion of local hipsters is, in fact, very important. 

And all of this inspires tonight's playlist . . .

As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.

I get the point but a much better post would be to highlight some of the other great breweries in Kansas City. There's a lot more than Boulevard when it comes to local beer.

Amen.

The options aren't just local but also regional.

Give me a fucking break.....”I know a lot of people”....I was at Lukas getting some Super Bowl brews and several of the folks in line including me had some Boulevard....whatever “hipster” you’re quoting is a real revolutionary....

Once they overcome the culture problem, maybe they can focus on creating better beer. A lot of them seem to be overrated.

I got three cases of boulevard beer for my Super Bowl party, fuck dr wrecks and the cancel culture liars. I’ll proudly support my hometown brewery every chance I get.

^^^ Enjoy your COVID boomer.

I'm sure your friends will thank you.

Lol. You don't have any friends and you can't afford any beer without your Biden check. That's why you're hanging out on this crap blog. Sad.

Eventually, the cult that seeks outrage in everything will run out of targets.

The people criticizing Boulevard probably also voted for Biden who has inappropriately touched many women and is accused of sexual assault by a former staffer.

I'll continue to buy BLVD beer, get wasted every weeknight after work, and beat my wife and kids due to my lack of strength and integrity. QAnon runs the world, bitches!
