Avery Brewing Co. Introduces Pomona Barrel-Aged Tart Ale

Avery Brewing Co. in Boulder, Colorado has announced the release of a new barrel-aged tart beer called Pomona. Full details on this release are below.


Boulder, Colo. — Avery Brewing Company, an innovative craft brewery in Boulder for over 25 years, announces a new addition to their vast barrel-aging portfolio. Introducing Pomona, a barrel-aged tart ale with pomegranate and blueberry added. Beginning in August, Pomona will be available year-round in six-packs of 12oz cans.

House strains of Saccharomyces yeast, Brettanomyces yeast, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus go into creating Pomona, the newest barrel-aged tart ale from Avery.  After Pomona ages for 4 months in oak barrels, Avery’s brewers infuse bushels of blueberries and pomegranates.  The final product is a delightfully deep purple. Named for the ancient Roman goddess of fruitful abundance, Pomona bestows big, berry-forward flavors and a pleasing sour pop.

Originally created for the Avery Invitational Small Batch Challenge, this juicy and tart ale packed with forbidden fruits has generated a fervent following amongst Avery loyalists.  At 6.5% ABV, this temptingly tart ale will guide beer drinkers to the celestial plane of true barrel-aged sours.

Pomona will be distributed in six-packs of 12-ounce cans beginning in mid-August. Find Pomona near you with Avery’s brew finder: http://www.averybrewing.com/brew-finder
