Day 1 Beer Bloggers Conference -> Avery, Oscar Blues, and Bring Your Own Bottle

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

The first day of the Beer Bloggers Conference was at the least, epic!  As most have come to realize, you make your own luck and that is what happened to me to start off the first day of the Beer Bloggers Conference.  After a pretty intense “day minus one“, I needed to start off this day with some thing equally as interesting.  Thankfully there is twitter.Avery Brewing Co - Barrel Room

Avery Black Tot

Monday, February 15th, 2010

The Avery Black Tot was a brewery only release, only 300 case we available to the public.  I got lucky and was sent 2 bottles by a fellow beer connoisseur in Colorado. The Black Tot is an Oatmeal Stout that has been aged in Rum Barrels.  There are so many types of barrel aging going on now; it is wonderful to see so many new flavors being introduced into the market place.  The only think that sucks is the limited quantity available, but I can understand that.avery_blacktot2

Avery The Maharaja Imperial IPA

Monday, January 18th, 2010

I usually don’t do another review of the same style of beer from the same brewery so close to one another, but with all the comments left about the Avery DuganA, I had to review the Maharaja fairly quickly while I could still recall the DuganA.  The DuganA was Avery Brewing Companies double IPA, the Maharaja it its big brother, and Imperial IPA weighing in at a hefty 10.6% abv.  Lets see if it trumps its little brother, which I might add was pretty darn tasty.Avery_maharaj2 (more…)

Avery duganA Double IPA

Monday, December 21st, 2009

I found this beer at my local Stew Leonard’s Wine shop in Clifton NJ.  I bought this beer for two reasons, first I’ve never had an Avery IPA and second I didn’t have any IPA on my shelves at home.  No IPA’s on hand for a hop head is a problem; I seem to have every other style of beer at the ready.  The DuganA IPA is Avery’s Double IPA, which they proclaim to be “brutally bitter”.  Lets see just how this beer holds up!avery_duganA2
