ABOUT THE BEER // 10.8% abv — Our Imperial Stout is back again for another installment of our Lee Hill Series, this time featuring our favorite roasted bean. After aging for four months in Leopold Bros. Maryland Style Rye Whiskey Barrels, we aged our Imperial Stout on Dragonfly Dark Horse Coffee. Chocolate, toffee and floral rye whiskey spice complement the robust pepper and smoky notes imparted from the Dark Horse Coffee to deliver a buzzworthy, barrel aged experience.

LEE HILL SERIES // Named after our original North Boulder brewery, the Lee Hill Series is our tribute and continued commitment to experimenting and crafting small batches of beer for YOU, our awesome, craft beer-loving fans.

This quarterly, limited release series celebrates experimentation and creativity. Served up in 19.2 ounce cans, the Series offers new and innovative styles that are sure to be cellar keepsakes!

Every so often fate allows two epic forces to collide, like OMF with Odd13, or a hurricane with a sharknado. In the case of Colonel Gil Shepard, a strong German-inspired Kölsch meets cutting-edge Bavarian hops and a modern American IPA mindset. Calista hops and experimental fermentation with a traditional yeast from Köln combine crisp drinkability with a fruity punch of pineapple, apricot, and lemon… and please remember: don’t hassle the Hoff!

Available on draft at both brewery locations!

Our Mutual Friend is located at: 2810 Larimer St, Denver, CO.

‘Island of Conclusions” is our new imperial IPA double dry hopped with Citra and El Dorado hops. Tropical and juicy. Notes of citrus, pear and bubblegum.

Inspired by the “The Island of Conclusions” in the much loved novel, “The Phantom Tollbooth” by Norton Jester.

Fiction Beer Company is located at: 7101 E Colfax Ave, Denver, CO.

Continuing our series of concert-level performances in a casual setting, we proudly present Brass & Beer with Apollo Chamber Brass! A quintet of the highest caliber, we are honored to host these gentlemen for their first brewery performance. In keeping with some of our new beers, the theme will be “variety.” We guarantee this show will keep you on your toes!

Similar to Bach & Beer, we will have a “name-your-own” ticket price system at the door; no advance tickets are needed, but please bring cash. Suggested donation is $20, but feel free to chip in as you see fit. All ticket sales go to the artists.

It’s the sixth annual Big Ass Tap Takeover. If you’ve read that before, you can stop reading. If you have not, keep reading…

…All of our beer-centric locations (Castle Rock, Greenwood Village, Highlands Ranch, Longmont and Northglenn) host a plentitude of crafty offerings from one brewery on one fine, fine day. Also known as The Big Ass Tap Takeover.

Some locations will have upwards of 40 different Avery beers on tap allowing you to stay in your backyard, yet get the feel of what it’s like to drink from their very own taproom in Boulder.

It’s all damn day, people. You can be here at some point. There will be raffles for beer swag, Avery reps on site to talk shop (craft beer), shenanigans, New York style pizza.

This is THE event of the year for us and we love to make it special for everyone. Come feel special and drink up the goodness that is Avery Brewing at Parry’s Pizza.

Belle: a sour oatmeal pale ale aged 2 years in whiskey oak barrels and aged 3 months with golden passion fruit. Careful, you might just lose your horses while drinking this brew (historic reference, anyone?)

This beer is named for Myra Maybelle Shirley (Belle Starr), a true American outlaw. She was known to ride sidesaddle, dressed in black velvet, toting a pistol in each hand. She led a ring of horse thieves and ran with other famous outlaws such as Frank and Jesse James. The Bandit Queen of the Old West!
