Beer Review: Avery Anniversary Ale – Fourteen

Beer Name: Avery Anniversary Ale Fourteen

Price: $6.99 for a 22 oz. bottle, kind of a steal if you ask me!

ABV: 9.46%


That’s What Friends Are For

So there I was, bottling my beer in my kitchen thinking,”Finally this is happening.” I hadn’t brewed beer in over 8 months. I felt like I was going to forget the basics; but just like a bike, I got back into it perfectly. Well, almost perfectly. I went to cap my first bottle and my capper broke apart. I was upset and started worrying about how I was going to save all of my beers without dumping my beer into a keg. I texted a couple of friends to see if they had a bottle capper I could borrow. One was able to help.


Be Thankful

I hope you all are preparing for a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, friends, massive amounts of food, and painstakingly paired craft beer. If you prepared a homebrew for this day, good on you for putting in the extra effort. It is hard to truly understand how lucky we all are for having the things that exist in our lives. A roof over our heads, clothes on our back, food on our tables, and people with which we share such things. We gaze upon our glass of Terrapin Pumpkinfest, Stone Saison du Buff, or Ommengang Hennepin and lick our lips with enjoyment while we feast. We laugh and play with close friends and family. We take another sip. We enjoy these moments.
