Avery Brewery Sourfest pics
« on: March 01, 2010, 09:17:21 AM »
Hey, I traveled 4 hours for this...so I guess it counts.

What a gig! Well worth the drive. Met MikeyPedersen a co-member here.
So many beers, not enough time to sample even a good portion of them.
You got 20 beer tickets good for a 2 oz pour each ticket....I did not even
get through all 20 of mine...let alone the handful someone that was leaving
gave me....

Anyhow here is Avery's new beer engine / bar back you see it when you walk in the door

Here is the cooler where they store brewery release only beers etc.

Part of one of their barrel rooms

Blow off from a fermenter outdoors. Smelled like Hog Heaven to me

Shot of the crowd in the tasting lineup

Couple guys I was drinking beer with



My 2 Favorites were Saison De Lente from "The Bruery" and Duck Duck Gooze from "The Lost Abbey"
followed closely by Cerise Casse from "Cambridge Brewing" and last but NOT least
Saison Brett by "Boulevard Brewing"....LOL I already lost count so many good brews!

Awesome pics Vertical!  That really was a great time.  Hopefully I'll catch you back there for the Strong Ales festival in April.
