For the second year in a row, Avery and Ska have combined forces to create a beer ideally suited for a post-ride beverage. Adam Avery and his brewers came down to Durango and brewed it up with the folks at Ska. A few weeks later Dave Thibodeau and Arlo from Ska went up to Boulder and then they all rode their bikes 426 miles from Avery to Ska, over a ridiculous number of mountain passes.
Join everyone at Avery on Sunday, July 18th for the release of Wheelsucker Wheat Ale and the Kick-Off Party for the 2nd Annual Tour of BoulDurango. Mingle with the founding brewers of Avery Brewing, Oskar Blues Brewing and Ska Brewing as they--along with their respective staffs--carbo-load and prepare for the 470 ride from Boulder to Durango.
The first edition of Wheelsucker Wheat was made at Ska Brewing in 2009 and Brew # 2 (to be released on 7/18) is currently chugging away in fermentation in tanks at Avery Brewing! Expect to taste a SKAVERY version of a traditional German Hefeweizen: clouded to perfection with a zesty and delicious hefe yeast and loaded with esters reminiscent of clove and banana.
