I've visited the Avery Brewery several times but now I'm motivated to review.

It's hardly what you would call a pretty brewery like New Belgium or Odell. Hidden behind a carwash and other crappy non-descript buisinesses, Avery has zero street presence. However, once inside, things improve. A newly lengthened bar (now a longer L-shape) and enlarged seating area with tables and memorabilia, give Avery an improved atmosphere and it's a genuinely enjoyable place to sit and have a beer.

Quality is excellent, as you'd expect from such a well-respected brewery.

Service is exceptional. Every time I've gone in, whether for samples or a pint, the service is better than any other brewery I've visited. They not only greet you and make educated recommendations, but they ask you your name and offer theirs as well. Not only that but they remember your name when you come back to the bar.

Selection is great as long as you're only looking for Avery beers. In this case, they have all of the "usual" offerings plus a lot of great brewery-only beers. They even have a couple on cask and a few pre-mixed blends.

No food other than the option to heat your own pizza. Something about not being able to serve food at a brewery in Colorado...

Overall very reasonably priced.

A great brewery with awesome service and excellent beers. What more could you ask for? Maybe some nice pub food but I'll have to bring that up with CO state legislature.

Avery, if you can make it, is an amazing brewery with a fantastic layout. The selection is superb, and the New American style food if you are hungry, hits the spot. There are three main locations to drink in, but if you can, come on a not so busy night and sit at the main bar when you walk in. The other 2 rooms (lower room and smaller wet bar through the "factory tour") are fine, but the real Avery experience is in the main room. While the location can be out of the way at times, especially if you are not from Boulder, Avery is well worth it.

OK, I'm an easy grader, but Avery is definitely a great pub to visit, the beer is great (although not all of their beers are equally great, some are fantastic), we had a great meal there and loved their apricot and ginger sours. The beer we liked the least was Maharaja, which used to be one of the highest rates IPAs!
