Meet the Brewer: Avery Brewing
Thurs. Nov. 7th / 7pm
Front Range BBQ / 2330 W. Colorado Ave., Colorado Springs
Event on Facebook

Avery Brewing is well known across the United States for beers that push the boundaries of the craft brewing industry. They show off the maturity of their beer portfolio by including 18% ABV stouts and puckery barrel aged treasures, along with their well-known and delicately balanced easy drinkers like White Rascal, Ellie’s Brown Ale, and Joe’s Pils. That’s why we’ve been looking forward to announcing this for months and months – Avery Brewing will be joining us for a very special Meet the Brewer event on November 7th at Front Range BBQ.

Joining us will be Matt Thrall and Andy Parker. Matt is Avery’s head brewer, and Andy is the the head of the barrel aged beer program. We interviewed them for our Cellarmanship video series, and we encourage you to check out that video. They will talk about the beer that they make, their roles in the industry, what’s coming up at Avery, they can geek out with you, and they’ll be available to chat one on one.

For the event we will have a fantastic lineup of Avery beer, including a number of beers normally only available in their Boulder taproom, some regular favorites, a number of aged bottles from their barrel series, some big beers, and some small beers. Here’s the list:
