Continuing the series that started back in 2009, Avery Brewing Co. will be releasing two new barrel-aged beers, neither of which appear to be bottled yet.
The 26th release in the Boulder, Colo.-based brewery’s Barrel-Aged Series will be Tectum et Elix, Latin for “roof and boiled,” a 6.5 percent ABV ale that will be aged in cabernet sauvignon wine barrels. According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the beer will be bottled on April 15, 2015 with only 975 cases produced.
“Conceived in the alley,” reads the beer label. “Born under a roof on Nautilus. Where ‘drain’ isn’t just a noun but finally, once again, a verb as well. FINALLY!”
Insula multos Collibus will be the 27th edition of Avery’s Barrel-Aged Series. It’s a 9.1 percent ale that has will be aged in bourbon barrels with cherries. The beer will be bottled on April 22, 2015 and only 1265 cases will be produced. The phrase is Latin for “island of many hills.
“A zymurgical ode to one of the classic – and one of our favorite- cocktails,” reads the beer label. “Fancy a guess?”
According to the brewery, its Barrel-Aged Series is a group of beers brewed that “defy styles or categories…where anything, and we mean ANYTHING, goes!”
Both of the new bottle-conditioned limited releases will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional details was not immediately returned.
