“Excellent Beer, Knowledgeable Staff”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Some of the best beer in Colorado! Found out I was staying down the street and made this my first stop. The bar tenders were very knowledgeable on each style of beer, which there was a lot to choose from. Their IPAs were some of the best! You can do sample sizes or get a full pint - I would recommend choosing a few to sample if you're not familiar with their beer. I've only had one IPA and their Brown Ale, but was impressed by the five or so other IPAs (fall day IPA, summer day IPA, wet-hopped IPA, and DuganA IPA was especially great). If its nice out, get there early and grab a table outside.

“The beer is great but they need better food”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

It is a brewery and it is all about the beer. They truly have some excellent beer to chose from and the location is great as well as it gives you a brewery feeling. However once you decide to serve food as well then try doing a good job. I think they get their food from some 3rd party and it is truly below average bar food. Actually I felt sick that evening and it had nothing to do with the beer. Step it up a notch and get the food right and it will be a great place in Boulder

“Great time - lots of dogs”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We sat outside and the weather was wonderful. Everyone in Co must have a dog. There were no issues with the dogs and the atmosphere was great. We had some really good beers on the taster menu.

“Excellent Beer, Superb Service”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

I traveled to Boulder to tour the Avery Brewing Company and Taproom while at the Great American Beer Festival. Naturally the crowds were large, and the taproom extended their hours to absorb the huge crowds of beer snobs.

The brewery is in a small business park. The taproom and dining areas do much to obscure the utilitarian surroundings, and there was also an outdoor patio area. It was here that I parked myself as the weather was sunny and unseasonably pleasant.

The beers are superb. Fresh from the source they are that much better. I tried the wheat, which they brand 'White Rascal' and distribute widely. Also the legendary 'Hog Heaven' which I was told was a very fresh batch, and a seasonal double IPA that was excellent.

I also received great service from Stacy, who was able to text my order to the bar area. It arrived far more quickly than if I had stood in line at the bar. A very pleasant hang with wonderful beer.

Highly recommended.

“Avery Breiwng”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Avery has always been one of my favorites and should be on the bucket list for any beer connoisseur. During the GABF they open at 9a and serve breakfast and lunch to go with the 30 or so draft and specialty beers. There are several rare beers offered during the 4 day party and the menu is always changing. Avery's barrel aging and sour beer programs are second to none. Rumors the Adam over hops his beers are greatly exaggerated. You should be able to find something you like regardless of your taste. Construction of the new brewery north of Boulder has not yet started and they are looking towards a late 2015 opening. This location will offer not only the much needed capacity growth allowing the existing brewery to focus on sour and barrel aged beers but also offer the true destination facility that will put Avery in the class of New Belgium and Sierra Nevada.
