GABF Medal Count: Our Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest wins Gold and Brabant Barrel-Aged Wild Ale takes Bronze!

You should have seen the looks of delight on Head Brewer Steve Breezley and Brewmaster Adam Avery's faces after hearing the announcement that our Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest had won a Gold Medal in the German Style Dopplebock/Eisbock.  The news came to us just minutes after receiving a Bronze medal in the Experimental category for Brabant Barrel-Aged Wild Ale, and the reaction from our entire crew was priceless.  We were thrilled at the medal, but moreover we were laughing at the irony of winning medals for beers at polar opposites of the craft spectrum.  Yep, a Bronze for an avante garde, brettanomyces fermented, barrel-aged wild ale that "was not brewed to any known style" and a Gold for a lager beer.  Needless to say we were thrilled to be honored for our brewing prowess in such disparate categories!  There aren't many brewers in the country pulling that off!

If you're around the brewery anytime soon give the fellas on the brewing staff a well deserved pat on the back.  They are: Steve "Breeze" Breezley, Steve "Wad" Wadzinski, Andy "Hollywood" Parker, Matt "Handtruck" Thrall, Matt "Mick" McMillin, Rob Christiansen, Fred Rizzo, Billy Phillips, Jesse Brookstein and Ross "Wilson" Meinert.   As any homebrewer knows quite well, it takes painstaking attention to detail, hard work, cleanliness and a true love of your craft to execute a beer start to finish, and these guys do it all week long.  Bravo brewers!

Brabant

The Kaiser is the Fall seasonal in our Dictators Series, and can be found at quality liquor stores across Colorado and select states throughout the country.  If you are lucky enough to find Brabant on a shelf, buy a lotto ticket, 'cause it is your lucky day.

Collaboration Not Litigation Ale

Release Party is Friday, February 5th
and features a
FOUR YEAR VERTICAL TASTING!

It all started back in the early aughts, when Vinnie Cilurzo, of Russian River Brewing, and Adam Avery, of Avery Brewing, met at the Great American Beer Festival.  After becoming friends the two soon realized that each brewed a beer called Salvation; Avery's a Belgian Golden Ale and Cilurzo's a Belgian Strong Ale.  Preferring a creative solution to their naming conflict, the two brewers chose to blend their respective brews together--and continue with brewing the brews individually, we should add--to create a new and increasingly complex libation that captured the unique qualities of each beer.   After a collaborative brew session in late 2006, Batch #1 of Collaboration Not Litigation Ale was born and bottled at Avery Brewing in February of 2007. 

Separate brews of our respective Salvations--each brewed and fermented in strict accordance with the brewers original recipe--were blended and bottled earlier this week as Collaboration Not Litigation Ale.   

A Tapping Party and four-year vertical tasting is scheduled for Friday, February 5th from 5-8PM to mark the release of Batch #4 and to celebrate the fruitful relationship between Avery Brewing and Russian River Brewing.   Rob Rosser will be on hand serving his famous fish tacos ($4 each) and we'll be unveiling another Friday Special Tapping, so plan to spend a whole night at the Avery Tap Room! 

Look for Collaboration Not Litigation Ale in 22oz bottles and on tap throughout CO and across the nation beginning in February 2010.  Suggested retail price is $8 per bottle.

The Maharaja Imperial IPA Batch #11 Release Party

Welcome the 2010 batch of the notorious Maharaja Imperial IPA at a release party at the Avery Tap Room. We'll have lots of fresh Maharaja along with plenty of other of your favorite Avery brews flowing from the taps.  Local Chef extraordinaire Rob Rosser will be on hand serving his fish tacos and other treats.

Look for The Maharaja on draft and in 22oz. bombers in select states and stores beginning the second week in March.

I hear that 16 is drinking very nice now and still has a year or so before the brett really peaks.  15 and 16 are going for $4.99 at a local liquor store and they have a good number of cases of both so I may have to pick up some.

OK then it was the 15 that was the brett.  You're right.  They also have a good number of cases of Shipyard Imperial Porter for $2.99.  Decent enough imperial porter and hard to go wrong at that price per bomber.

Avery Tap Room Tapping! The second release in our Tap Room-only sour series is here!
Eremita II is a strong blonde sour ale that has been residing in seven French oak barrels for two years. After primary fermenting with a Belgian abbey yeast, we pitched it with our house Brettanomyces strain, house Pediococcus, and Lactobacillus. This produced a compendium of rustic farmhouse flavors, mild oak tannins, moderate lactic acidity, and a tropical fruit aroma. After feeding it a manly helping of apricots and peaches, we have Eremita II, an incredibly smooth 10.1% abv American Sour Ale. Cheers!

Scimitars of Simcoe®!
Big kings need big beers, and to defend his kingdom, The Maharaja swings a huge scimitar of hops!  An entire half of his hop legion is comprised of Simcoe® soldiers - hops so intense that you'll think a pine tree and grapefruit tree made a baby, and it's kicking in your nose.
On December 12th, 5pm, at the Avery Tap Room bombers and draft go on sale of this insane Imperial IPA.  Accompanied by tasty Indian cuisine and Bollywood films in the Barrel Aging Cellar, the Maharaja himself will be here, and will allow you to take pictures with him!  22 oz. bottles of his majesty will be available in Colorado retailers beginning in mid-December, and invading our other territories beginning early January.  If you're ever curious where you can find fresh Avery beers near you, check out our Brew Finder!
 

   
 
A New Year Nears, and New World too!
Arriving to port at the Avery Tap Room on December 19th, we celebrate the seasonal return of New World Porter! Since 1998, we have sailed through the late winter and into early spring with the help of this robust porter that has been dry-hopped for the long voyage from bottle to palate.  These days, they call it a "black IPA", but back then it was a New World!  Colorado retailers will begin to see 6-packs and draft in late December, and it will reach further ports by mid-January.  Ahoy!

Avery is discontinuing some classics if you want to try them one last time. 
Discontinuing:
The Beast
Samael’s Ale
Mephistopheles
The Kaiser
 The Czar
 Salvation
 Dugana

I remember hunting those down years ago, when big beers were the new kid on the block, and I have walked past them many times since then.  I will have to try a few of them one more time. 

To take its place will be 6 new beers emerge from the Botanicals & Barrels series:
Vanilla Bean Stout, aged in bourbon barrels
Raspberry Sour, aged in oak barrels
Tangerine Quad
Apricot Sour
Ginger Sour
Coconut Porter

Looks like trend chasing to me.  We don't get Avery here anymore :shrug:

For a $12 bomber of a barrel aged beer that Vanilla Bean stout is really nice.  Raspberry Sour is solid as well for a one note fruit american sour.

Don't think I've had any of those beers they're discontinuing in 6 or 7 years.

They do a ton of other big beers that are smaller format and more limited release.  I'm guessing those weren't selling anymore  :shrug:

I haven't bought Avery in ages.  We still get it but just too many other options.

Besides sours, do Belgian style beers sell anymore?  The wife asked me to grab her a Tripel and besides Karmeliet I couldn't find a single other option in the store.

Shit man, we can hoof it from here.
I know you can walk on water...
But can you walk on this much beer?

Samael’s was great, they were using Stranahan's barrels for awhile and those were exceptional. Some years it was a boozy mess though.

I think the last time I had one of those was when Beagle was in town and CAH had the Czar on tap.  Wait, that's not quite true.  I had a Dugana at mekong a couple years later.  Never bought any of them in bottles.  :shrug:

Seems like not.  I was just thinking about this earlier - a newish local place (Lickinghole Creek) used to make a fantastic Saison, a solid Triple, and even canned a Belgian Pale.  Now all they make is fruit infused crazy shit aged in nasty ass rum barrels that people line up around the block for.  Meh.
