Beer 236-238 Avery Brewing

Went to Avery for a special release which I will open and share in the future only to find out they were having more special releases that I could only have there.  Here are 3 of them, would have had more but I did have to drive home.

Grapeless Ape Sour -  I debated on if I should count this or not since the only serving size was 5 oz but hell, it is to good not to share.  It was a sour beer that was aged for 2 years in wine barrels.  Even with only serving 5 oz glasses they were out in 30 mins which means there was not much of it.  Rated 5 by far.

Tepache - Had this one to go with my burger, yes they serve food there.

14ers ESB - Honestly ordered this one for the name, super hoppy ESB.  More hoppy than a lot of IPAs that I have had.

Hit up another new brewery in North Denver with some friends.  Was pleased that they had a couple of beers that I could toast to the Hardrockers and Leadville runners this weekend (see below).  Could not believe the selection at this brewery, over 30 different beers that they brewed themselves, crazy selection.

For the Hardrockers-  Alpine Mountain Pale Ale

For the Leadville 50 riders and runners- Copper Mountain Pale Ale

And one last beer because my wife ordered it then decided she did not want anymore, not letting it go to waste.  Raspberry Wheat.
