Avery Brewing Co. to Release Oud Floris

The next beer in the Avery barrel-aged series is coming soon. It’s called Oud Floris, and is a sour brown ale of goodness.

Sunday. June 24th,4pm. Bottles are $8 each, limited to 6 per person. Plus, you’ll be at Avery, so there’s that.

Unlike past releases, this one is on a Sunday. This change should help with overcrowding, as well as the whole “well, I work at 4pm on Fridays, so I can’t get there” dilemma. Who’s excited?

Some details from Avery:

The Avery Barrel-Aged Series gets a new family member with Oud Floris, a Flanders-esque dark brown sour ale – sweet with pucker power and notes of fruitiness. This experimental ale gives honor to the brewing tradition of Belgium’s Flanders region, and we christened it after our old friend Foris Delée. In addition to being our newest adopted brother, he happens to be the chief consultant in the design and planning of our new brewery! We love you Floris! We will release this amazing sour on Sunday, June 24th, with bottle sales beginning at 4pm. Bottles will be $8 each and a limit of 6 per person. Not to mention, a selection of some super-special drafts for your wait in line!!

 More details, in press release verbiage:

Expanding their one-and-done series of experimental barrel-aged beers, Avery Brewing Company sets the date to release Oud Floris, a sour brown ale blended from thirteen wine and liquor barrels.  At a very limited release of 252 cases, the brew spent between 1-3 years maturing in 13 different barrels, and presents what the brewers describe as a “Flanders-esque” flavor profile, both sweet and sour with notes of fruitiness.

While the beer pays tribute to the sours and brewing tradition of Belgium’s Flanders region, the name is a dedication to Avery’s brewery engineering consultant FlorisDelée.  Formerly the brewmaster of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Delée has been the chief consultant for the design of Avery’s new facility in Boulder, CO, and has become an indelible part of the Avery Brewing Co. team and family.  As the designs and planning continue, the initial size of the building will be 72,000 sqft with overall costs of the project estimated at $27 million.  Including state of the art brewing systems, an aerial brewery tour walkway, full service Tap Room and retail store, owner Adam Avery plans for the brewery to be a homage to America’s craft brewing tradition.

The Avery Tap Room in Boulder, CO, will host the release of Oud Floris, starting sales at 4pm on Sunday, June 24th, 2012.  Bottles are 12oz. and will be sold as singles at $8 each.  Fans will be able to buy up to 6 bottles, and availability can only be guaranteed at the Avery Tap Room during the release party.  For more information, beer connoisseurs can check www.averybrewing.com or email info@averybrewing.com.
