Maimed in an accident that left him with a hunched back, Brother Joseph Zoettl worked in the St. Bernard Abbey power plant shoveling coal. In his spare time, Brother Joseph used found objects such as marbles and chunks of concrete and tile to build miniature shrines and buildings on the Abbey grounds. Over 40 years, he created 125 different models and replicas. Today, the Ave Maria Grotto covers three acres and is world-renowned as both a fun roadside attraction and an awe-inspiring collection of folk art. We have named our Belgian dubbel after Brother Joseph as a testament to his perseverance, his hard work, and his indomitable spirit. A full-flavored abbey-style ale with a complex taste and aroma, Brother Joseph’s Dubbel is filled with specialty malt and dark fruit character.
FIRST CONTACT* – There is nothing quite like your first time. For most people this beer will be their first experience with our ginger beer collection. It is made with fresh cold pressed ginger and lemon. Perfect beer for all occasions.
Cue the song…”If you like pina coladas”… Who doesn’t like pina coladas? Rhetorical question. This beer is made with ginger, pineapple juice, and coconut cream flavoring. Yum!
One of 2 beers we offer that glow under blacklight! Yellow like the sun, this ginger beer is a lemon, lime, and orange flavor explosion. Come to the tasting room to see this one shine!
When the city of Avondale was formed in the 1850’s, the main thoroughfare became known as Spring Street, and on this street (now 41st Street) is where you will find the present day home of Avondale Brewing Company. The Saison is our flagship brew that helped spawn the formation of Avondale Brewing Co. Our Saison is brewed with our proprietary house yeast, a 4 malt blend and traditional Slovenian hops. Our unique brewing process along with the combination of the finest ingredients creates a thirst quenching brew with no equal. True to style this unfiltered ale has a coppery golden color and rich malty backbone that creates a unique farmhouse brew. Flavors burst with tropical fruit that combine with hints of spicy and peppery notes that are derived from our house yeast. One sip and you will fall in love.
