Avery Brewing Co.
Avery Brewing Company has become bigger and bolder over the past 23 years, moving to the fore of Colorado big beers production.
Proud of the “ales and lagers that defy styles and categories,” the Boulder-based brewery is among the top and restaurant is the state’s sixth largest craft producer.
Adam Avery owns the brewery, along with his dad Larry Avery. A bank loan helped them build the ultimate facility and in February of 2015, Avery opened its new headquarters in the northeast part of the city, not far from Boulder Reservoir. The restaurant and taproom gives way to a patio that might have the wonderful smell of barbecue wafting throughout on any given afternoon. The dog-friendly patio is comfortable and parking is plentiful.
The move to the new space after 22 years meant an expansion from roughly 45,000 barrels per year to upwards of 70,000 and there is room for additional growth.
The brewery began experimenting with barrel-aging in 2003 and is sought out by barrel-aged fanatics throughout Colorado and beyond. Many of the big beers post ABVs of two touchdowns and a field goal.
Canning began in 2010 and some of Avery’s most popular beers are available: Joe’s Pils, Raja, Ellie’s Brown Ale, El Gose and White Rascal.
