Boulder, CO (Sep 2009) - Avery Brewing Company is preparing for the release of Sui Generis, a barrel-aged sour ale that is the second installment in their Barrel-Aged Series.

Due to extremely limited quantities of this brew (<130 cases will be produced), 12oz. single bottles will be sold only at the Avery Tap Room, between 3PM and 8PM on September 23rd. Those who attend this free event will have the opportunity to purchase up to six bottles of the beer and see first-hand what is next in line in the Barrel-Aged Series.

The Sui Generis release is just one highlight of a full week of events going on at the Avery Tap Room to celebrate the Great American Beer Festival.

A complex ale, aged and artfully blended from several types of oak barrels, Sui Generis displays a delightful lactic sourness complimented by hints of brett, oak, and acetic. Intricate yet bold, Sui Generis was crafted in the tradition of perennial Tap Room favorites De Vogelbekdieren and Voltron. This brew was drawn from a most unique group of oak barrels: it is a blend of ales from 39% Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, 35% Chardonnay barrels, 13% Port barrels and 13% Bourbon barrels.

Established in 1993, Avery Brewing Company has developed a reputation as being one of the most daring and forward-looking breweries in the nation. They are the brewers of Avery IPA, The Maharaja Imperial IPA, White Rascal Belgian Wheat Ale, Mephistopheles' Stout and eighteen other year-round and seasonal beers.
