Avery Apricot Sour joins ‘Botanicals’ as 4th release

Avery Apricot Sour

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.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Apricots. Barrel Aged.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: 1/30/17

7.3% ABV

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
Malts: 2-Row, Chocolate Malt, Munich, Honey, C-120

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Release: August, 2016

5.2% ABV

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.
