Avery Sui Generis set to debut in September 2009

Avery Sui GenerisFollowing upon their success of the first barrel-aged brew, Avery Brewing Company of Boulder, Colorado has today announced that their 2nd such beer, Sui Generis, will be released at the Avery Tap Room on Wednesday, September 23rd at 3pm until 8pm.

Sui Generis will be another limited batch brew. Only 128 cases of it were bottled. This beer will be offered up in individual 12oz bottles and be priced at a premium over other craft beers. None of this beer will be available from a tap at the tapping party but everyone who attends will have the chance to purchase up to 6 bottles of this new brew.

Sui Generis is a blend of ales that were aged in either Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, Chardonnay barrels, Port barrels and/or Bourbon barrels. It has a mix of three types of yeast: Brettanomyces, Pediococcus and Lactobacillus. The beer weighs in at 10.65% ABV and is bound to be another winner from Avery.

The brew is described as: "... a complex ale, aged and artfully blended from several types of oak barrels, and displays a delightful lactic sourness complimented by hints of brett, oad and acetic. Intricate yet bold, deeply complet yet surpirsingly refreshing, Sui Generis was crafted in the tradition of perennial Tap Room favorites De Vogelbekdiern and Voltron."

This this beer is as popular as their Brabant was it should sell out quickly. And while you're at it, pick up some of their latest seasonal releases: The Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest Lager and The Beast Grand Cru Ale. Both are now in stock this week.

- #3 Gosling's Rum Barrel-Aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout - Late 2009
