Avery Mephostopheles Stout 2011

Avery Mephistopheles Stout 2011

User Rating:

2011 Vintage:  The last in the Demon Series of Ales by Avery.  Complete damnation!  Similar to Noel’s review of The Beast, I got owned by this beer.  Coming in at an alcohol level which rivaled that of BrewDog’s intense beers, Mephistopheles packs more than a punch.  It is like a nuclear bomb on the taste […] ...

Avery Joe's Premium American Pilsner

Avery Joe’s Premium American Pilsner

User Rating:

In the past years I would have momentarily glanced at the Avery beers on shelves at liquor stores and walked on by.  Reflecting back on that a few months ago I realized it was due to a simple factor.  The labeling.  Their old labels seems out of date making me think that this amazing brewery […] ...

Avery Out of Bounds Stout

Avery Out of Bounds Stout

User Rating:

C.V. Howe (Marketing Director) puts it well on Avery’s website in saying that Out of Bounds is, “a roast monster!”  Pouring a garnet hue with a creamy beige head it is no wonder this beer might be a pub favorite based on looks alone.  Pressing your nose to the glass, you will get a huge […] ...

Avery Hog Heaven Barleywine

Avery Hog Heaven Barleywine

User Rating:

According Adam Avery, Hog Heaven was the beer that helped put his brewery on the map.  Looking at the label one might they they are in for a smoked beer, but don’t be fooled.  The nonsensical name is only a front for this barleywine-style ale.  In a video Adam explains that they called it a […] ...

Avery The Beast

Avery The Beast

User Rating:

Stick a fork in me. I’m throwing down my weapons. Waving the white flag. Laying down under the bus. Alright already; I’m done. I surrender. This beer owned me. From first pour to last sip, it was utterly dominant … The Empire Strikes Back dominant. It beat me into submission. The Rebel base? Captured. Han […] ... [Read more]

Avery duganA IPA

User Rating:

Upon my return from NOLA, the Sunday before Labor Day, I cracked open a double IPA in order to quench my craving for a hoppy beer.  What I dove into was more than just hoppy, but rather a pummeling of my taste buds by that little green flower. Avery produces a couple IPAs: Standard IPA […] ... [Read more]

Avery Samael’s Oak Aged Ale

User Rating:

I must admit, I’ve never had a beer produced by Avery Brewing Co. Adhering to the philosophy of “go big, or go home” I thought sampling one of their Demon series oak-aged ales seemed appropriate. These beers are big crafty devils that boast high ABVs and intense flavor components. From what I can gather the […] ... [Read more]

Avery The Reverend Quadrupel

User Rating:

Avery Reverend is a Belgian Quadrupel Ale brewed in Boulder, Colorado. The brewers tell us that “The Reverend, was created in tribute to the life of Sales Mgr. Tom Boogaard’s grandfather, an ordained Episcopal Reverend.’ I’m always looking for connections between beer and my vocation. My experience with this beer fits with the marketing line description as “strong willed, assertive […] ... [Read more]
