Where, in Colorado, I was!

Where was I this time? I'll give you a few hints. White Rascal. Old Jubilation. The Reverend. Maharaja. The Beast. Do any of these fine brews sound familiar? They come from an awesome Colorado brewery that's one of my personal favorites, and can be found quite readily on store shelves and flowing from taps all around San Diego as well. If you haven't guessed it yet, it's Avery Brewing Co. of Boulder, Colorado. If you've spent any time around beer, you are most likely familiar with this brewing giant. When I say "giant" I refer to the beers, not necessarily the brewery. It's situated in the back of a small industrial complex, and driving down the road there is no hint of the thriving brewery that sits just behind a carwash and auto repair shop. As seen here, they have a nice sized barrel-aging room for their more experimental brews, which usually include wild and sour ales. The tasting room has been expanded recently, and now bleeds onto an outside patio area. The atmosphere is fun and loud, but it's laid back enough that you can bring the whole family. If you're already a fan of Avery, or if you're just looking for something different and happen to be in the Boulder area, stop by for a taster, pint, or even a tour. You'll be glad you did.
