After getting lunch and some beers at Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery I jumped in a cab and headed for Avery Brewing. This place would have been difficult to find if it wasn't for a cab driver. The location is in the back of an industrial park.

There is an L-Shaped bar on the right side of the Tap Room and tables to the left. After reviewing the beer list, I was mesmerized by the extensive options, so I went with an amalgamation of different samples. You can get 4 oz pours for $1 ($3 for the bigger beers), pints are only $4, which is a really good deal.

On to the epic beer draft options...selections included Joe's Premium American Pilsner, White Rascal, Karma, Jerry's Roggenbier, Ellie's Brown Ale, Out of Bounds Stout, IPA, Dry Hopped IPA, New World Porter, Seventeen Anniversary, dugan A IPA, Salvation, The Reverend, Hog Heaven, 2010 Collaboration Not Litigation Ale, Maharaja IPA, The Czar, Rumpkin and 2009 Beast Grand Cru (16% ABV).

What an amazing selection! All beers I had were ridiculously fresh and served in appropriate glassware.

Must say this was a great visit and had the opportunity try some fantastic beers. I just wish I had more time to stay there and check out of one of their tours, but I had to get back to Denver.

This is my absolute favorite brewery and beerpub on earth. Period. I literally planned a second trip to Boulder from Albuquerque, NM (500 miles driving) to revisit Avery. It pleased just as well as it did the first time. Go. Have the BBQ. Drink the drinks. Venture into the secret bar in the back of the brewing facility. Enjoy.

Avery's current facility has an informal downstairs taproom area, with ample outdoor seating for nice days. Upstairs is a gift shop, catwalk bar overlooking the canning line, and a more elegant-looking bar and restaurant area. The food is pretty solid, gourmet new American fare. Roughly 30 beers on draft at any time, including a great variety of brewery-only releases. Experimental sours, ancient ales and barrel-aged monsters and demons abound. There were way too many tasty-sounding beers over 15% abv when I was there recently.

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!
