Avery Ginger Sour is coming to the brewery’s Botanicals & Barrels Series this month.
Hand picking the barrels and each herbal addition is what makes this Avery series one of the most diverse in their portfolio. The lineup features a Tangerine Quad (in bourbon), Apricot Sour (oak), Raspberry Sour, Vanilla Bean Stout (aged in bourbon), and newly released Coconut Porter.
The sixth release in the series is Avery Ginger Sour, an oak aged wild ale featuring fresh ginger root. The brewery sourced fresh ginger from Boulder, Colorado local, Pressery. Fresh ginger was pressed and added to the base beer within 24 hours.
Verdant fresh ginger is artfully rooted in radiant tartness, peaking in the unmistakable burst and bite of this bright barrel-aged sour ale.
Avery Ginger Sour will be a 22 ounce bottle and draft offering. With this release, there are six Botanicals & Barrels Series offerings available year-round.
Avery The Reel Peel IPA is a future can, and future year-round release.
With the number of breweries added a Fruited India pale ale to their year-round lineup, style is here to stay. The Reel Peel IPA bolsters the citrusy hops with tangerine peel. The brewery recently released Tangerine Quad, also with tangerine peel, in their Botanticals & Barrels Series.
Inspired by a summer’s day and crAfted to crush year-round, our IPA twists real tangerine peel and citrusy hops into this juicy experience! It’s the real deal!
Avery The Reel Peel IPA is slated for 12 ounce cans. The brewery has not yet announced this offering.
Avery Coconut Porter will be the newest release in the brewery’s ongoing Botanicals & Barrels Series this month. Each beer features hand selected barrels and one botanical. The lineup includes Vanilla Bean Stout, Tangerine Quad, Apricot Sour, and Raspberry Sour.
Avery Coconut Porter is a chocolatey porter, brewed with fresh coconut, and aged for a few months in bourbon barrels until ready for the big time. This release was slated for around this time last year, aged in rum barrels. The lot of barrels that Avery received didn’t pass muster, so it was back to the drawing board. Hopefully a year of recipe tweaks have done well by this beer.
Copious quantities of coconut coupled with time basking in Bourbon barrels compliment the chocolatey and sumptuous nature of this delicate porter.
Coconut Porter was set to be bottled May, 2016. The brewery has not announced a release date yet.
Avery Perzik Saison is back in cans ahead of the warmer weather.
“Perzik” is dutch for peach, and in this beer, the peach is the start. The Colorado brewery uses over 11 pounds of peaches per barrel, making this full of aroma and flavor.
This saison tastes like sitting in the hammock in your backyard during the summer. The peaches taste fresh, the beer finishes clean, and the esters of the yeast really compliment the whole package.
“We started making Perzik Saison two years ago, and we designed it to be a delicious, easy drinking, and sessionable beer. It has a massive amount of peaches, but our goal was to also stay true to the saison style. We ferment warm at 26 degrees Celsius, which builds a great yeast character that pairs well with the peaches.” – Fred Rizzo, Head Brewer
Avery Perzik Saison can be found nationally once again starting in April, 2017.

Avery Tequilana will be the 43rd release in the brewery’s Barrel Aged Series. If you are a tequila fan, you’re in for a treat.
Expect a light sour beer with a blast of tequila flavor, especially on the nose. The brewery has a close relationship with El Atlo, Mexico based Suerte Tequila. The brewery has been purchasing their barrels for years and now have nearly 200 on site.
Avery Tequilana is a blend of both resposado and anejo tequila barrels, aged for seven months. Suerte barrels really give the final beer a very pronounced flavor, which is why the love affair has lasted so long.
“Tequilana,” said Rupp, “has a very pure and huge tequila character. Since this beer was aged in reposado and añejo tequila barrels for seven months, it’s really exciting to smell and taste oak character in the beer such as butterscotch, vanilla, and agave notes since they come simply from the barrels themselves.” – Travis Rupp, Avery’s R&D Manager
Agave tequilana, more commonly known as blue agave, is the naming inspiration for Avery Tequilana. Find it on draft at the brewery starting March 13th, and nationally in 12 ounce bottles.
Avery Apricot Sour, the fourth installment of the brewery’s Botanicals & Barrels Series, debuts at month’s end.
The barrel-aged series debuted with Raspberry Sour in May of 2015. Not long after, Vanilla Bean Stout was added to the series, and most recently Tangerine Quadrupel Ale.
The brewery is leaning back “tart” with Avery Apricot Sour. Just like its predecessors, each beer comprises of the four usual beer ingredients, and one specially chosen outside ingredient. The same mixed sour and wild culture in Raspberry Sour is used Apricot, with more lactic acid in the finished beer.
“As the second sour of the series, it is brewed with the same bacterial and yeast cocktail as Raspberry Sour, however the result is a more lactic beer with minimal malt character and a ton of apricot”. – Special Project Brewer Leigh Audin
Avery Apricot Sour will be available in 22 ounce bottles and draft starting January 30th.
Boulder, Colorado’s Avery Brewing Company is expanding distribution to the state of Nevada in this month (January, 2017). The brewery has signed a distribution deal with Breakthru Beverage.
“We are excited to open a new market for Avery and Nevada is a perfect opportunity for us due to our existing relationship with Breakthru Beverage. We’ve seen over the years that Breakthru’s commitment to distribution goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to quality, and we are looking forward to working together more in 2017.” – Dustin LeMoine, Avery’s Director of Sales
Nevada is Avery Brewing 33rd distribution state. The brewery was founded in 1993.
