Avery Brewing 25th Anniversary Pour List Captures Avery Old & New

avery brewing 25 anniversary

Allow me to doff my journalist cap for a moment because as important as it is to report on this industry without bias or influence, it’s just as important occasionally to share a few stories and remember that we’re still just writing about beer.

Like all craft beer fanatics, my journey also had to begin somewhere. And while Sierra Nevada, Magic Hat, Kentucky Ale (Alltech Brewing), New Belgium and Odell had the earliest influences on my understanding of flavorful beer, I also widely credit Boulder’s Avery Brewing. Throughout the past six years of covering this industry, we’ve been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to cover and attend countless numbers of beer festivals, but the very first that I ever attended was Avery’s 16th Anniversary.

It was there is that hallowed alley, that my eyes were opened to the powerful and diverse world of big beers, while also discovering that it is, in fact, possible to be hungover by 7pm. Perhaps the two findings were somewhat related.

Nevertheless, over the years, Avery has grown up in a big way, upgrading to a 5.6-acre state-of-the-art facility, joining forces with Mahou San Miguel, and recently launching a complete re-brand of their packaged products.

However in an age when legacy brands consistently aim to remain relevant by following the latest trends, sometimes a return to one’s roots can be the most exciting and refreshing course of action. Yesterday afternoon Avery Brewing released the initial pour list for their 25th Anniversary Party and by early indications, this list will remain diehard Avery fans of anniversary parties of old.

Sure there is healthy representation from Avery’s newly release portfolio including the recently introduced Go Play IPA, but with 93 beers pouring at the event, a majority of the lineup consists of their gold foil barrel-aged series as well as vintage releases of Avery classics like 2009-20012 Samael’s, 2013-2016 Mephistopheles, and 2009-2012 Beast to name a few.
