Avery Brewing Company
Founded in 1993 by president and brewmaster Adam Avery, Boulder, Colo.-based Avery Brewing Company is where Adam brought his years of homebrewing experimentation to the next level.
Starting with a seven-barrel brewhouse, Avery initially produced three flagship beers: Out of Bounds Stout, which won the gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 1994, Redpoint Amber Ale and Ellie’s Brown Ale, an American Brown Ale showing deep russet hues with the sweet and somewhat nutty character of Adam’s late (1992-2002) chocolate Labrador named Ellie. A multi-award winning ale, Ellie’s Brown won the 1997 Colorado State Fair “1st Place Brown Ale” award, the 2002 Top of the Town Award from Denver’s 5280 Magazine and the 2007 New York Times "Best of the Browns" award, among many other honors.
Avery Brewing has expanded tremendously since its founding and has added many beers to its year-round, seasonal and special-release lineup, including India Pale Ale (American IPA), White Rascal (Witbier), Old Jubilation Ale (winter seasonal) and many others.
Beginning September 2010 Avery introduced some of its beers packaged in cans, along with traditional bottles, and the can offerings continue to expand. “Every year seems to get better and better around Avery Brewing Company, with more experimentation, more cool beers and more great people every new day,” according to Adam.(www.averybrewing.com)
