Distribution of Boulevard’s Love Child No. 7 began last week and it is slowly moving across the country. This year’s batch returns to the Flanders-style Red as a base beer, and is down to 8.2% ABV. As Boulevard explains, the ABV continues to decrease because the blend percentages change annually. The blend for Love Child No. 7 breaks down as follows:
Previously used red wine barrels – 48%
Previously used whiskey barrels – 30%
Stainless tanks – 22%
