Parry’s Pizza hosted its 5th annual Avery Brewing Co. tap takeover last weekend, which included an unusual collaboration and some extremely rare beers.
Boulder’s Avery Brewing featured regular favorites like White Rascal and Czar in addition to specialties like Samael’s and Collaboration Not Litigation.
Tap room rarities typically only offered in their Boulder tap room like Old Perseverance, Expletus and Callipygian made appearances across the lineup of Parry’s Front Range locations.
As if having tap room rarities wasn’t remarkable enough, owner Adam Avery opened up his personal cellar to Parry’s with varieties including 2010 Beast, 2010 Mephistopheles’ Stout, Blackeye, Fortuna and Tectum.
Avery and his crew made the rounds at Parry’s, giving eager fans and patrons a chance to speak with the team behind the beers.
The collaborative project is becoming common in the industry. One of the beers poured at Parry’s locations, Collaboration Not Litigation, not only has collaboration in the name but also in its creation. This brew highlights Avery and California’s Russian River Brewing’s harmony within the beer community. Both breweries had made a Belgian style ale with the name Salvation. What could have been a messy battle over copyrights and court hearings ended in a collaboration beer enjoyed by fans of both breweries. Parry’s tapped some during its celebration.
