Avery Beer Fests!
In the quest for brewing excellence, we share ideas with and learn from our fellow craft brewers. This requires us to frequently sample each other’s creations and discuss our findings. When a deeper analysis is needed, it’s time to freakin’ party!
The Boulder Strong Ale Fest, Boulder SourFest, and Boulder IPA Fest are celebrations of the limitless possibilities in craft brewing, where we invite breweries from all over the country to share their interpretations and iterations of beer genres that we love dearly. All profits are donated to charities, and brewers from around the country often make a visit to Avery Brewing Co to see old friends and taste what they’ve created.
If you share our fascination with beer, please check the dates below to see when you can score tickets. Be ready… they sell out quickly!
