First beer sampled during gabf week 2009. Draft from taproom. Great way to kickoff this party. Awesome brew with a hint of Brett sourness and the saltiness of a bw matched with port undertones.

Avery tasting room GABF week 2009. Dark gold. Very winey with the brett not overwhelming. Tart and also a bit sweet. Deep rich undertones and too easy to drink. My favorite from the tasting room.
