Flying Saucer on Monday the 13th

I received the following email, and thought you all might like to know. In my own long standing tradition of working too much and being totally overscheduled, I won't be able to attend. If you do, let me know how it was!

The Flying Saucer in the Power & Light District will be hosting “The Avery Experience” on Monday, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. The event will be hosted by Adam Avery, president and brewmaster of Avery Brewing Co. in Boulder, Colo. It will be a two-hour event featuring 15 of Avery’s beers.

Featured beers will be distributed in sample-sized servings and will include Karma Belgian Ale; White Rascal Belgian Wheat Ale; India Pale Ale, an American IPA; Ale to the Chief, Avery’s new “Presidential” Pale Ale; Fifteen, Avery’s latest anniversary ale; Salvation Belgian Strong Golden Ale; The Reverend Belgian Quadrupel Ale; Hog Heaven Barleywine; The Maharaja Imperial India Pale Ale 2008; The Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest 2008; The Czar Imperial Stout 2003; Samael’s Oak-aged Ale 2008; The Best Grand Cru Ale 2004 and Mephistopheles’ Stout 2006. The beers will be paired with select meats and cheeses.

As Avery is one of the country’s leading craft breweries, it’s pretty exciting to have the president of the company host this event and for customers to be able to taste so many Avery beers in one sitting.
