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.

Awesome place and can't say enough good things about it. I was so impressed by the wide variety of beers all of which are very well done. That's rare for a brewery. The sours, IPAs and especially the Calligyian stout were all fantastic. The servers were knowledgeable and everyone from the servers to the gift shop girl were very friendly. Can't wait to go back.

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.
