Avery Five Monks Bottle Release July 27

Avery Five MonksAfter the slight hiccup (read: postponed release) with Black Eye, Avery Brewing Company is moving on to the next installment in their Barrel-Aged Series – Five Monks. This ludicrously massive (19.4% ABV) Belgian-style ‘quintuple’ ale aged in bourbon barrels is set to release at the brewery on Sunday, July 27 at 1pm.

The details:

  • $12 per 12oz bottle
  • Limit 12 bottles per person
  • Limited beers on tap beginning at 11am

Commercial description:

So yeah, it’s MUCH bigger and bolder than a quad. But the term “sextupel” seems inappropriate alongside a congregation of monks- so quintupel it is!

Avery Brewing Company is located at 5763 Arapahoe Ave in Boulder, CO.

    Not sure if it was a type or changed after that label image was produced, but you have listed as the ABV being 19.4%, but the label says 18.94%

    • Yea that’s the approved label from the TTB but Avery used 19.4 on their newsletter and Facebook event page so I went with that
