Avery Brewing is Turning 15

Avery Brewing Company of Boulder, Colorado is celebrating it's 15th birthday this year. In honor of this momentous occasion, Avery is releasing it's annual anniversary ale. This year it's called: Fifteen. There will be a special release party on April 30th at the Avery tasting room from 4 to 7 pm. A $10 entry fee will get you into the celebration. Bottles of Fifteen will be available for sale as well as sampling.

According to Avery: "This years brew was fermented using a brettanomyces yeast strain, making it one of the largest--if not THE largest--batch of 100% brett beer made anywhere to date. A tart, unfiltered beer spiced with caramelized figs, white pepper and hibiscus flowers."

This is considered to be a "farmhouse" ale. It should be something special. Fifteen will be available as of May 5th in 22oz bottles. This beer has been in the making since last December and should be one of their best in years. Avery Brewing is located at 5763 Arapahoe Ave. in Boulder, CO.

Update: May 25, 2008 - I sampled a bottle of Avery's Fifteen last night and posted a review.
