Visited on 10/10/12. GABF Week (Stop #2 of the day)
A: Very cool place, a little hard to find as it is buried in the middle of a business park. The front tasting room is your typical tasting room with a bar that could maybe 10-12 patrons and tables that could hold another 50-60. We drank in the Back Bar area which is where they store the barrels, which was just cool as hell.
Q: Mind you that we went during GABF week and they were breaking out specialty and retired beers every couple of hours, most of them were just solid as can be.
S: Service was decent...when we arrived the place was about 1/3 full and the bartenders/servers were mildly attentive but friendly and knowledgeble. A funny thing was they were even excited to try some of the retired/specialty beers being released too.
S: Best Selection the entire trip. They were serving easily 30 different beers that covered the gambit in styles.
V: Some beers were slightly high but for the most part were reasonably valued. We paid more for the rare releases which were totally worth it.
Overall, even if you have no plans to go to Boulder...make some then hit Avery.

Went for the tour and a taste of hopefully something I haven't had from Avery before. It was cool to see their barrel room and how they have had to expand to any building in the area and now you can understand why they have to love this upcoming year.
Servers and tour guide were fine but not as knowledgeable as I would have hoped. I knew more about brewing than the guide.
The tour was fine, not much or special compared to any others, no free samples or any beer which is unfortunate.
Tap room is quite small actually and the pours were not that reasonable to be honest. I only had one beer which was their special sour experiment the called Fusion 5 I think which was awesome, but expensive. Everything else you can get in bottles everywhere else which was disappointing.

Located in the back of an industrial park. Went to Avery for the first time for their Momi Hiwa release. It was crowded, but not so much that you couldn't move or easily obtain a beer. They even had servers coming by for those of us standing in line for the beer release. Don't think I need to say much about the quality of the beer - outstanding as always. Their barrel aged stuff seemed a little overpriced ($12 for a 10oz pour), but other than that, everything was amazing. Definitely plan to make many return trips.

Went here a few times for barrel beers release parties. Everyone is friendly and helpful, and I love all of their different sours. Overall great vibe and love waiting for newly release beers even if you do have to wait a few hours in line. Cheers!!!!

Not exactly a place that I would have been eager to visit, had I not heard of the quality of the taproom exclusives.
Unfortunately, located a bit outside of the lovely Boulder citycenter. A bit hard to find from the road - very industrial setting. Decent enough interior and a handful of tables out front as well.
Lots of stuff on tap - including 8-10 brewery exclusives which ranged from solid to excellent. Service was good - really like the handheld devices that communicate with the bar. The option of ordering sampler-sized pours of everything was also a nice plus.
I don't really care for most of Avery's distributed line (less maharajah and a few other exceptions), but I'll look at them in a slightly different light after checking out the taproom.

Another Friday night stop on our tour of Boulder, Avery should be a list topper for every beer drinker: iconic, widely-distributed Colorado brewery the consistently delivers great beer.
However, if you're expecting a taproom that rivals Stone World Bistro because of the big name, you'll be disappointed. Instead, Avery is a small, crowded local with an extensive selection of their beers to try, well beyond anything I've been lucky enough to find in stores over the years.
On this stop, we jumped right in with a Lilikoi Kepolo. Lilikoi is passionfruit and we remembered having a fantastic lilikoi beer at Kona Brewing years ago; I didn't think this one matched up, but Gloria liked it. Excellent drafts of Nineteen and Dry Hopped Salvation followed. Drinking these on-site-only variations defines the very purpose of drinking local. We finished with Samael's, a 15.6% ABV beer that could've been a wonderful end to our evening in Boulder (or wouldn've been if not for sharing snifters) if we hadn't hit Avery early on our tour.
Any fan of Avery would do well to plan a little time at the tap room to sample their extensive list, including the regulars that are distributed plus several extra special beers just for showing up. As warned on the website, the taproom isn't big and most of the seating is outside, so dress accordingly if the plan is to settle in. Food and smaller draft samples are available so that the excitement of so many options doesn't overwhelm.

The staff are incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and ready to serve you. Price is totally reasonable for the quality of product. The brewery tour is fun and informative for both those that brand new to brewing and those that have a ton of experience. If you're in Denver or Boulder you should add this one to your list.

finally made it to avery on a day when it wasnt too crowded to enter the palce. its quite big inside, tucked back in an industrial park. few rooms, lots of people, outside seating area, maybe 15 or more taps, huge selection. all the beers were obviously fantastic, and there is always a few exclusive beers there that they dont bottle, which is great. the range was impressive, and the service was kind and good for how busy it was. prices were totally reasonable, food looked good, but we didnt eat, and it was just a great place to hole up for the afternoon and sample fine beers. definitely check it out if you make it to boulder, this place has it all, and the beer speaks for itself.

Stop #2 of my CO beer vacation.
Even though our GPS sent us on a long roundabout path to Avery Brewing this is actually located on a road that cuts through Boulder.
Walking into the tap room the bar is located straight ahead and the seating area is to the left of the bar. There are also a few tables located in the barrel room (more on this a little later). Needless to say this beer destination was busy on a rainy Saturday night. My wife and I were able to score one of the few tables in the barrel room which was a wonderful, intimate, and sedate area of the brewery.
Our server was great and helped us to pick out a mega sampler. I recall we tasted the following brews; 19 Anniversary Ale (Belgian Triple), IPA, Buddha’s Hand (a stand out Belgian Pale Ale), Collaboration not Litigation Ale (Belgian String Dark, again a stand out), Ellie’s Brown Ale, Hog Heaven Barley Wine (a solid sedate BW), Maharaja (Double IPA, had another pint of this), Salvation, The Reverend, and a sour beer along the line of Rodenbach.
Being able to sit among the barrels with my wife was a very good experience as we ere able to carry on a great conversation away from the hustle and bustle of the main bar area.
They did have food but we didn’t try any but what I saw looked good.
If you are in Boulder you really do need to make this a destination.

The last time I hit Avery, they hadn't remodeled their Tap Room. The expanded space is a nice update from the original. Inside, there's plenty of space and a large bar hosting 20 or so taps. There are lots of Tap Room Only beers to be had at any given time to provide encouragement to stop by.
Being in an industrial park doesn't help the exterior ambiance. The outdoor tables are basically in a parking lot. The vibe of the crowd; however, more than makes up for it. Avery has a deal with the catering company on the other side of the lot to provide food service. I haven't ordered, but friends of mine speak very highly of them. Service is good. The staff is friendly, knows the regulars well and is generally knowledgeable about the day's beers.
Overall, I'm glad I came back here. There are rumors afoot of Avery moving to a space that's easier to access and where they can prepare their own food. In the meantime, I'm quite happy with what they've got.
