Old Perseverance Label Avery Beer

Avery Brewing announced the debut the release dates for two new limited-release brews this week. Twenty Three Anniversary Edition is a Brett Beer that's labeled as a Dark Farmhous Ale. It was released on Monday in 22-ounce bombers.

Here is the release from Avery regarding Twenty Three:

Inspired by Brabant (remember that one?) and the goodness of its marriage of Brettanomyces fermentation and Belgian dark malts, we've crafted this celebratory wild ale using three strains of Bretts. Our house strain, Brettanomyces drie, brings loads of ripe stone fruit aromas to the mix. Brettanomyces bruxellensis lends the classic horsey and rustic aspects of a traditional wild ale, while Brettanomyces custersianus delivers massive tropical fruit essences to the flavor party. Add some beautiful, dark and robust Belgian specialty malts for caramel, chocolate and fig elements and you have this-our rendition of a Dark Farmhouse Ale.
7.9% alc/vol

Twenty Three will be available in 22oz bombers. After the brewery release, bottles will make their way around AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, GA, IL, IA, KS, KY, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, NC, NE, NJ, MN, MY, OH, PA, SC, TX, VA, WA, WI, WY, and Sweden.

Also releasing from the brewery this week is Old Perseverance, the 34th entry in Avery's Barrel-aged Series. This bourbon barrel-aged old ale was brewed with maple syrup and dark muscovado sugar. It also features Winston Churchill, The British Bulldog, on it, which is always a plus.

Here is the release from Avery regarding Old Perseverance:
