Stopped in for dinner and a few brew tastes while on a whirl-wind brew trip in the Denver and Boulder area.

Set back in the metal row industrial buildings, I was surprised at what I found inside. This is a big, open bar and tables area with a great patio. It has a nice pub feel which transcends the location. The problem with the place is that it was really busy and filled with a very young crowd on the night that I was there. The table servers where fairly knowledgeable about the taps and the menu notes gave some great guidance.

The beers were very flavorful. Since so many of Avery's brews are higher on the ABV, and my palate was tired from a long day of tasting (I know, poor me) I kept it to just four.

The food was average for typical "bar food" and the menu is nothing to write home about, but the calamari hit the spot for that salty-crunchy something to have with my beer.

I'll go back when I am in the area if there is something on tap that piques my curiosity, but I'll try to hit the off-prime time.

Avery's always been a bit of a sleeper brewery for me - you know they're there, and you know they're good, but they just don't seem to get the hype that many lesser breweries seem to get. I made my third visit to Avery on August 14 and my respect for this place has gone up every time. They've got an upstairs restaurant with great food, a downstairs taproom, and a large outdoor seating area - they can handle a huge crowd here and yet they've been close to full all three times I've been. Perhaps the most impressive thing about Avery is how many styles they do really well - hoppy beers, Belgians, and sours are all top notch, not too mention a stout lineup that I'd put up against any brewery on the planet. The tap wall contains 30-ish selections with their common stuff along with tap room only selections. All-in-all this place is easily on my top 5 beer destinations list!

This is a must stop in Colorado. While not all their beers will appeal to everyone, they have a fabulous ever changing selection that is high quality. Extra bonus is that their food is some of the best you could find at a brewery.
