Avery Brewing will retire Demons of Ale series

Avery Brewing will retire Demons of Ale

Avery Brewing will retire the “Demons of Ale” series at the end of this year to make room for an expanding 2017 lineup. The “Demons of Ale” series includes Samael’s, The Beast, and Mephistopheles. 

Additionally, the brewery will discontinue The Kaiser and The Czar, part of the “Dictator Series.” The only beer from the “Dictator Series” to survive into 2017 is The Maharaja Imperial IPA. The last surviving “dictator” will now be available year round in a new four pack of 12oz. cans.

The 2017 expanding line up will focus on building up the “Botanicals and Barrels” series, currently consisting of Raspberry Sour and Vanilla Bean Stout. Avery Brewing expects to expand this series to six-year round offerings by the end of spring 2017, adding Tangerine Quad, Apricot Sour, Ginger Sour, and Coconut Porter to the lineup.

“The interesting thing about our ‘Botanicals & Barrels’ series is that as beautiful and simple as the final beer is, it is the culmination of an insanely complex and intricate process. It’s both an art and a science to allow the menagerie of competing flavors in the beer and the barrels to be married together and end up in a masterfully blended barrel-aged beer.” – Travis Rupp Head of the Barrel-Aging program,

Avery Brewing hasn’t completely ruled out the possibility of finding members of the “Demon’s of Ale” series as a one off tap room release at the brewery in the future.

Avery Chai High is an exotic, spicy fall release

Avery Chai High can

Avery Chai High will soon join the Boulder, Colorado brewery’s fall seasonal lineup.

As the name suggests, Avery Chai High is brewed with chai tea. Despite trying this new beer, we still don’t know what the base beer actually is.

Mediate on this transcendent, rich, and robust spiced seasonal of a decidedly different sort.

This release has a very exotic flavor. The beer tastes creamy, with strong notes of black tea and ginger, with a touch of clove and cinnamon. In a sea of fall lagers, this one will be a standout.

Avery Chai High is a 12 ounce can and draft seasonal offering starting in August.

Style:          (w/ Ginger, Various Spices,  Chai Tea)
Hops: Bullion, Columbus, Sterling, Hersbrucker

Avery El Gose joined the brewery’s canned lineup in July. 

Posted in Avery Brewing, Don't Miss This

Spotlight: Avery El Gose (Because it’s still summer)

Avery El Gose can

Avery El Gose is now available in cans. You can figure out the style, right?

If the “El” isn’t a dead giveaway, the sour ale uses lime and sea salt. A bit like a margarita, in a sense.

A timeless, traditional tart gose (goes-uh) with its zesty and salty disposition is brightened by a tangy citrus twist. A bier for every día!

While it seems like folks are already gearing up for fall, it is still nearly 100 degrees outside. Avery El Gose shines in the heat. We are no strangers to boozy margaritas mind you. El Gose’s slight sour tartness, mixed with lime and salt tastes like a bit like your favorite house mix. Actually, that gives me a good idea. Breaking out the tequila with the next can.

12 ounce cans of Avery El Gose debut at a special release party at the Boulder brewery on July, 2016.

Style: Gose (w/ Lime, Salt.)
Availability: 12oz Cans
Release: July 17, 2016

4.5% ABV

Look for Avery Chai High to debut in fall, 2016.

Avery Certatio Equestris, modeled after a mint julep

Avery Certatio Equestris

Avery Certatio Equestris joins the brewery’s Barrel Aged Series on June 19th. Think of a popular bourbon drink when you wonder what this beer tastes like.

Avery Certatio Equestris is modeled after the ubiquitous mint julep. The base sour ale was aged in bourbon barrels with spearmint leaves (the key ingredient in the julep, after bourbon). You can probably imagine the result from here.

A mint julep is not the product of a formula — it is ceremony, and must be performed by a gentleman possessing a true sense of artistic, a deep reverence for the ingredients, and a proper appreciation of the occasion. It is a rite that must not be entrusted to a novice, a statistician, nor a Yankee.” – Henry Clay

Dang it! We were in there till the Yankee caveat.Pucker up, Buttercup!

Avery Certatio Equestris is a 12 ounce bottle release. Certatio Equestris translates to “horserace. (He

Avery Xolotl, Barrel Aged Series #37

Avery Xolotl

Avery Xolotl looks to the 37th entry in the brewery’s on going Barrel-Aged Series.

Many of the releases prior to Avery Xolotl are barrel-aged wild ales. This edition is a bourbon aged imperial stout with a spicy twist. The 11.4% imperial stout is brewed with cacao nibs, vanilla beans and cinnamon, plus Pasilla, Ancho, and Chipotle chilies (including red, brown, and black.)

No 37. Clocks and spelling may not be your forte Thoma, but fortunately for everyone, blending a menagerie of wonderfully wacky ingredients is! Who cares about time or first name spellings anyhow?

Avery Xolotl will be a 12 ounce bottle offering. According to the label, bottling will occur in May, 2016.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Cacao Nibs, Vanilla Beans, Cinnamon, Chilies. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
