Incorporated in September 1993, Avery Brewing Company is the culmination of
several years of homebrewing experimentation by Adam Avery, President &
/Brewmaster, to perfect the recipes for Redpoint Amber Ale, Ellie's Brown Ale,
and Out of Bounds Stout. Production and sale of these three flagship beers began
utilizing a 7 barrel brewhouse and 7 barrel Gundy tanks as fermenters and bright
tanks. Out of Bounds Stout won a gold medal in 1994 in the category of dry
stouts at the largest beer tasting event in North America, the Great American
Beer Festival, held annually in Denver.
In 1995, as production increased, the 7 bbl Gundy tanks were replaced with four
30 bbl tanks and the DE filter size was increased. A Meheen bottling machine was
added along with a labeling machine for our 22 oz. bottles. In June, 14'er ESB
(Extra Special Bitter) was created. 14'er ESB is named for the 54 Colorado peaks
that rise above 14,000 feet in elevation.
Six-packs became available in 1996 with the purchase of a Meheen 12 oz. bottling
machine. Also, the first batch of Avery IPA (India Pale Ale) was brewed. Sales
of Avery IPA have grown to the point that it has replaced Ellie's Brown as our
best selling beer. Hopheads Unite!
Three 80 bbl unitanks were added in 1997. The size of the brewery was doubled,
from 2,500 sq. ft. to 5,000 sq. ft. Old Jubilation Ale, an English Strong Ale,
was released as our holiday seasonal in October 1997.

This big, roasty stout takes flavor to the extreme. We aren't afraid to use

full-bodied stout that little extra something you've been looking for in a
Reviews of Out of Bounds Stout
Great black color, very small bubbles and compact lacing. Big aroma made up
of coffee predominantly. Very hoppy and dry taste that comes out very smooth
as if made w/ oats. Decent amount of smoke flavoring, but not enough to be
called 'smoky'. Same thing on the mocha tip. Just a great culmination of all
good things in a variety of stouts, all together in one. - BA
This one poured a deep deep brown, pretty much black. Head was good, very
even and almost looked sandy. It laced nice and the head lingered. Nose
seemed a bit mild. Hoppy with some butterscotch, caramel, and diacetyl.
Flavor is better than the nose, excellent in fact. I could definitely tell
they barreled in the hops! The typical coffee and chocolate were more
amplified than most, especially the latter of the two. Brown sugar,
molasses, the slightest brush of alcohol and astringency rounded it out.
Sweet and bitter were balanced excellent. - BA
