Well it’s Friday, which means the weekend is fast upon us. Last weekend Don and I were in Denver for the GABF, so I doubt either one of us will match our beer totals from a week ago, but I’m happy to say that my “Craft Beer Overload” has subsided and I’m eager to drink some nice beers.
I hit the beer store yesterday and loaded up on some goodies, including a Southern Tier Pumpking and an Avery Kaiser, which is an Imperial Oktoberfest Lager – that sounds like my kind of Oktoberfest!
I the spirit of my post yesterday, I’m planning to pit these two against each other, in a battle of Fall beer supremacy. We’ll see which one strikes me and a panel of experts (my wife and my buddy Frank and maybe my other buddy Bob if he’s around) as being the beer that best captures the spirit of the season.
Really it’s just an excuse to drink two very good beers, but what’s wrong with that? I might also break down and pick up some Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit – I’ve had a hankering for whiskey as of late.
How about you? Any plans to hit an Oktoberfest in your neck of the woods and polka like it’s 1999?
Is anyone brewing this weekend? As the weather cools, I feel a growing urge to break out the bayou burner.
Any other special plans that involve fine beverages, good food and nice folks?
As always, let us know below and have a great and safe weekend!
