Avery Ginger Sour is slated to be Botanicals & Barrels #6

Avery Ginger Sour

Avery Ginger Sour is coming to the brewery’s Botanicals & Barrels Series in the near future.

AT A GLANCE: Avery Botanicals & Barrels Series

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 slated to be Avery Ginger Sour, an oak aged wild ale featuring fresh ginger root.

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. The brewery has not announced this release.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Ginger. Oak Aged.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: TBA

Avery Coconut Porter (aged in bourbon) debuts this week

Avery Coconut Porter

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.

Style: Imperial Porter (w/ Coconut. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles
Release: Early April, 2017

9.5% ABV

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
