First off the tour is terrible! Save yourself time and just do the self guided tour. Very cool building and great selection of taps. The outside prior needs to be bigger. Just a very busy place.

What a great place to stop by, the tours are very informative. If you are the spur the moment type and don't want a full on tour, they have a catwalk which is easily accessible and allows direct viewing access to their brewing and lab. It's pretty darn neat.

The food is awesome, albeit on the expensive side. If you are a fan of meat, especially smoked meat, try the Meat, meat, meat. Everything is great and they try hard to locally source their food.

At any given time they have a TON of beer to try, from barrel projects to go-to favorites, to odd takes on those favorites as well.

It gets pretty busy during peak hours, and the service seems to suffer (understandably) and it's fairly loud as well. More room would have been great, especially for special releases.

Overall it's a top notch place to go and have good food and good beer, also very informative if you take the tour. Not an everyday place however, more of a special occasion place.

Avery is located on the outskirts of Boulder (about 30 minutes from Denver). Its a fairly large location with both a large bar area and a restaurant.

The taproom has quite a few of their beers on tap. If you love hot beers, this is the place for you (a lot of >15% beers). Pretty darn good brewer. I wish the service was a bit better though.

Avery has a rocking brewery going on. Extremely busy, with staff that work as a team to get shit done. Service was hit and miss since they were so busy, but they were working as hard as they could. A must visit brewery.

was here on saturday 12.5.15. despite living only an hour away this was my first time at the new facility
we showed up at 245pm hoping to be in between the lunch rush and dinner rush and found the place packed to the gills nonetheless. we were able to secure 2 seats at the bar which i always prefer as you are closer to the action and i always find service more attentive at the bar.
the vibe here is laid back but the place it self is very polished, very corporate especially from the exterior. there is an upstairs bar and dining with gift shop and take out beers, and a downstairs with bar and dining plus outside seating . place can probably hold 700 people. quality of beers is excellent and selection is mind boggling....i am guessing they had 25 of their beers on tap. we had Raja, fall day ipa, uncle jacobs, mephistopholes, out of bounds, out of mind, stoutworks orange and Czar
food was high quality and service was solid despite how packed the place was.
if i had to list any complaints, they would be minor at best. no fries with the burgers was disappointing but the mushroom polenta side was awesome. location is 15 minutes outside of boulder in an office park which means more driving but other than that this place is amazing and leaves them tons of room for growth. total beer amusement park, and we will return soon. took some czar, maharaja and raja home as well.

Dare I say the best brewery experience Ihave ever had? Phenomenal food and beer, selection of both was out of this world! Beer was expensive, but who cares? I'm going back again today. Servers were great, but it was packed on a Friday night. Gift shop well stocked with cool glasses. Catwalk over brewery was neat. Carry out had a few very rare bottle I will put in cellar. This is a must for true craft beer lovers.

Checked out Avery on a nice fall day.

It was busy when we arrived, we intended to have lunch, but there was a pretty long wait for a table, so we grabbed a few tasters and went outside to sit on the "grass". (artificial, but it was nice) There is a dining area / bar downstairs adjacent to the outdoor area. Inside is a swag gift shop upstairs, and another dining area. Really nice place.

Quality was top notch. My wife and I split 6 tasters, and they were all excellent except one.

Selection is great. They had 20+ taps (I think almost 30), and a great variety, light stuff, IPAs, barrel aged, sours, etc...

Service was good. The guy that helped me was friendly and quick despite how busy they were.

Great place, highly recommended.
