Avery's 16th Barrel-aged release set for Father's Day

What tends to go into barrels these days usually turns out to be like gold for Avery Brewing Company of Boulder, Colorado. Fresh off the heals of their recent Rum-barrel aged coconut porter release last week comes another beer in their highly celebrated Barrel-Aged Series of beer. This time it's a wild ale made with grape must and aged in Chardonnay barrels. Check out their press release below for all the details of Avery Ross's's' Melange.

Avery Brewing Co. to Release Ross’s’s Melange

June 16th will mark No. 16 in Avery’s Barrel-Aged Series

[PRESS RELEASE] Boulder, CO – When it rains, it pours! Another barrel-aged beauty is ready to be poured! Ross’s’s Melange, No. 16 in the Barrel-Aged Series, is an 11.04% ABV wild ale brewed with Chardonnay grape must and aged in first use Chardonnay barrels for 6 months. Brewed with both Brettanomyces and Champagne yeast, the beer is as wild and funky as the man who inspired it.

“This beer has a huge white wine influence and aromas of fresh pear juice. It has some nice tannic notes from the oak and is very dry, definitely Champagne-esque. This is an incredible beer to pair with food,” said Avery Chief Barrel-Herder Andy Parker.

Bottle sales will start at 4pm on Sunday June 16th, Fathers Day, at the Avery Tap Room, 5757 Arapahoe Ave. in Boulder, Colo. CASH ONLY, $10 per 12oz bottle, and limit of 12 bottles per person. Only 147 cases exist, so hop in line early to make sure you get your shot at this awesome beer!
