  • My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stop at Avery. The whole building is really well done and there's lots of seating. Our server was cheery and very attentive even though it was packed. We enjoyed ...  more »
  • Avery has always been in the top five for beers, but these are not for the light hearted, some pack 18% alcohol and you can try them all. Amazing tastes nonetheless and there is something for everyone...  more »
  • Stopped in, tried the Charizard (get it, it's a pokemon) which definitely had a strong smoky taste. The coconut porter, awesome, and smooth. And Uncle Jacob, well, it was great, strong, knock your soc...  more »

  • I agree with the local guides' reviews - "come for the beer, leave for the food" - and wish we had listened. My husband loves Avery for their consistently great craft brews, and he was excited for the brewery experience. What was awesome: a full complement of "brewery only" beers, the bar and waitstaff service, and the upstairs atmosphere. Where it lacked: the food. The menu reads like a New American array of offerings for the Foodie, but tastes like mediocre diner food. While the pretzel and fries were tasty (albeit lukewarm), we ordered the Pork Belly Collard Greens (tasted like they'd been bathed in oil, no flavor); the white cheddar mashed (like the worst powdered potatoes - no creaminess, no flavor, just bland and yes, powdery); and two cheeseburgers. I am not kidding - my cheeseburger made me have to vomit in the bathroom (I'm not sure if it was the meat quality, some ingredient, or what). (I had one 2 oz pour, for those of you who might say it was because of drinking). We were so disheartened at the food experience, but conversely, happy to find such a range of great offerings on tap! Our advice: either revamp your food menu, or remove it entirely, because you'll negatively color an otherwise exceptional microbrewery experience.
  • Best brewery in Colorado. All the beers are fantastic (which is impressive given they have 30 taps), and the service matches it. Also, the food is amazing. It's my favorite place to bring friends from out of town.
  • One of the best breweries in Colorado! An extensive tap list of thirty beers, with everything from pilsners to IPAs to massive barrel-aged stouts to unique and experimental sours, they really cover the range of beer. Nice atmosphere with great decor, and you can take a self-guided tour of the brewery. Food is incredible and delicious, but honestly a little pricey and upscale for me most of the time.
  • Impressive variety of beers and brew styles. Probably one of my favorite breweries outside of Texas including Deschutes. Highly recommend The Real Peel IPA right now.
  • Ok, we all live in Colorado and think that we are beer connoisseurs. As such, we can't possibly think that the most popular brewery in the area is the best--we have been to the new, secret places and know too much about beer to love the same brewery that all the casuals like. Let's be honest though, Avery makes the best beer in Boulder and probably the best beer in Colorado. Sure, you can find a single beer at this brewery or that brewery that might be better than Avery's rendition, but Avery keeps 30 beers on tap that span the entire spectrum of beer, and they are all very good--some of them I would argue are the best. Beyond the beer my review is not a positive one... One of the things that I dislike most about Avery is how much it has changed since they moved to their new location about two years ago. The employees used to know regulars, give them discounts, and you could almost always find a table. Now, everyone and their mother goes to Avery and despite the fact that I have been to Avery well north of a hundred times over the years, I still get asked if I've ever been to Avery every time I get seated. Uh, yes I've been to Avery and you have probably served me beer a dozen times... The food is also way more expensive and not much better than it used to be. They used to get their food from a catering company across the street that made delicious sweet potato tots, buffalo chicken sandwiches, etc. It always tasted good and the prices were way more affordable. The last thing that bothers me about Avery now is how much the overall atmosphere has changed. It used to be a laid back place to go have a beer with some familiar faces at the end of the day. Now it has this corporate feeling and there are kids everywhere. I get that allowing kids probably brings in more money, but it totally changes the feel of the place. Kids are always running around, hanging on things, etc. Which is fine, that's what kids are supposed to do. But it's not the laid-back atmosphere it used to be and you feel like you have to filter what you're saying because you're around a bunch of little ones. Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. That place used to be Avery, but it's not anymore. The beer is still really good, but the service, atmosphere, food, price, and just about everything else are all worse than they used to be and I miss my old hangout.
