So far this season we have reviewed a host of fall seasonal beers. We have pitted them against one another like the review Jim did of Southern Tier’s Pumking vs Avery’s Kaiser, as well as the more traditional reviews I did of Sam Adams Octoberfest, and Shipyard’s Pumpkinhead. Plus I know there are plenty of fall seasonals that Jim and I have drank that we haven’t reviewed. They are getting play on other sites.
There are literally droves of fall seasonals with either an octoberfest or Marzen bent or the host of traditional pumpkin or other squash beers made to taste like pie in a glass. There is really no way one site can review them all, or even keep up with all the releases, so I thought I would turn the tables a bit here.
How about you tell us what your favorite is? There are so many we can’t possibly try them all, so let us know what to pick up and try.
Are there certain seasonals you wait all year for? If so, what are they, and why do they fill you with such anticipation? Do you stock up? Or do you just buy a few and then wait for them again next year?
One of my favorite stories so far is how Brandon Lackey, a fellow blogger that runs Brandon Lackey’s Bolg O’ Crap where his irreverent humor and stories of beer and cigars keeps me going back time and again, bought a 15.5 gallon keg of Sam Adams Octoberfest last year and almost killed himself to finish it! Do you have a story like his? Have you loved a seasonal so much you bought a keg of it? Or perhaps cooler fall weather put you in a whiskey state of mind?
As usual let us know in the comments.
