The Avey IPA is widely available in the Chicago area, so I am quite familiar with it and fond of it, but the other brews from Avery (aside from Ellie's Brown) can be tough to find.

So, when the girlfriend and I recently travelled to Boulder, CO we had to make a stop and check out some of their other offerings. Much to my delight, their tap list was extensive and delicious. The Maharaja (which I will review sometime very soon) was amazing and the rest of the beers all impressed us both.

The trip to the brewery confirmed to me that Avery is one of the op-notch breweries in the country. Plus, they had some pretty great gear. A good looking t-shirt for me and a tank top for the girlfriend that I LOVE to see her in. Yes, we are beer geeks.

Although the tasting room is in a fairly strange location (kind of an industrial park-type area), the outdoor tables provide a nice atmosphere during the warmer months and the inside is gorgeous, with a shiny wooden bar and a nice collection of classy pictures and maps throughout. It feels like a wine tasting room.

One major drawback, however, is the lack of food. We had to order from a place across the street (or alley maybe?). Another minor drawback, although the bartender was very helpful and friendly, our server seemed overworked and let it show. She was short, not very informative and more concered with turning tables than with allowing people to enjoy their expeience there.

We are looking at Boulder as a possible future home, and if we end up there, we will certainly be returning on a regular basis. World class beer at great prices.

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!
