Well I guess I gave away my answer in the title.
I’m going to load up on pumpkin beers for the weekend, as I’m doing a roundup of these seasonal delights for that other place I write for. I figure the timing is right, as these beers won’t be on shelves forever, and shouldn’t be missed by those who haven’t had one before (there’s a large mainstream/noob thread to the readership over there, which offers a great opportunity to introduce folks to the varied wonders of the World’s Greatest Beverage). Hopefully Dogfish Head has managed to get Punkin out by now so I can include it – it’s not a pumpkin party with the punk!
It’s also the opening weekend of the NFL season. I’m a Jets fan (save your barbs, it’s its own punishment) so I’ll need a combo of something light and a hammer that I can drop when Tebow finally completes a pass…to Mario Williams.
I think I’ll keep it local and go with some Sweet Action or Diesel from Sixpoint, and maybe pick up some Session Black Lager, which I got as part of a sampler pack and really liked. For the hammer, I’ll keep that bottle of Stranahans Colorado Whiskey that I recently ungifted from my boss.
Anyway, I’m actually excited to see how the Jets perform now that they’re not playing vanilla pre-season offense. I’m sure it will be painful, but at least it’s real live football, and that’s enough for now.
How about you guys and gals? What are you drinking this weekend? Any big football-related plans? Anyone brewing the White House beers? As always, let us know below and HAPPY FRIDAY!
