Boulder Strong Ale Fest Sneek Peek

Strong-Ale-logo-300x297

This Saturday Avery Brewing Company will be hosting the 13th Annual Boulder Strong Ale Fest. This beer festival celebrates the biggest and baddest (in a good way) beers from around the country. Beers served at this festival all have an ABV of 8% or higher, and according to the festival description, each beer must “represent something very special from the heart and soul of its creator.” As you can imagine this is a popular beer fest, not for the faint of heart or weak of palate, and one not to miss.

As it does every year, the festival has already sold out. If you’re one of the lucky ones who snagged a ticket early, Avery has released a sneak peek at some of the beers you’ll have the opportunity to choose from on Saturday. And by some we mean over a hundred, with more beers still being added. Here’s what they have on the agenda so far:
