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.

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

Avery Ruminate, Barrel-Aged Series #38

Avery Ruminate

Avery Ruminate looks to be the brewery’s Barrel-Aged Series 38th entry.

The base beer is a Belgian-style dubbel, aged in rum barrels with orange zest. Avery says the put their own personal twist on this. Rum and orange zest? We’d say they did.

We’ve been thinking long and hard about one of our all-time favorites and how to put our personal lil twist on it. Or is this a big twist? Hmmm. We’ll have to think, and drink, on that one.

Avery Ruminate is a 12 ounce bottle offering. The brewery has not yet announced this release.

Style: Belgian-style Dubbel (w/ Orange Zest. Barrel Aged. Rum.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
Release: TBA

10% ABV
