This isn’t a new concept, obviously, but for a local pizza chain that serves up some of the city’s finest pizza and also keeps an impressive list of craft beers, it makes total sense. And hey, that means more beer for us. Here’s the press release direct from Tony Palombino:
LOUISVILLE, KY (July, 2015) – BoomBozz is celebrating the opening of its seventh taphouse restaurant in St. Matthews by launching its own line of signature craft beers. The first brew is called 16.5 Hefeweizen. It’s an American wheat beer inspired by Founder and CEO Tony Palombino’s favorite beers, and locally brewed by Falls City. 16.5 refers to the number of years that the BoomBozz chain has been serving great food and brew in Louisville.
“I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying beer from all over the world and now I can bring the best of those tastes to BoomBozz customers,” noted Tony. “For sixteen years we have consistently worked to bring the very best food and beverage experience to our customers and this is the next big step. Wheat beer is growing in popularity and with 16.5 Hefeweizen we have a fantastic locally brewed wheat beer. Cutting edge beer, it’s what we do at BoomBozz.”
BoomBozz will be partnering with other local brewers to create a variety of Seasonal Collaborations. Local brewer [Goodwood] has already begun creating a special barrel age beer for BoomBozz. The barrel was chosen by BoomBozz customers and Knob Creek employees. Look for other tasty collaborations in the future with Country Boy, Rhinegeist, Schlafly and other talented local brewers.
Through 19, 16.5 Hefeweizen will be available for just $3.99 a pint at participating BoomBozz locations.
