    I agree love October fest brews pretty much all of the ones I've sampled.

    Ya. I love the Marzen beers. My fav Oxtoberfest beer is Spaten, hands down.

    Love the Spaten Oktoberfest. Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest is another must have.

    Sierra Nevada, eh.
    That's quite interesting though it is a collaboration.
    Not a HUGE fan of Oktoberfest beers in general due to spices, yet i enjoy most Christmas beers. Go figure...

    The Oktoberfest beers have run their course. The good ones are gone although you can still find Spaten. The winters beers are one the shelves now and Anchor Xmas Ale should be out in a few weeks

    Really enjoying this one.

    Nice...New Glarus Staghorn made the list at number 9. That brewery is less than an hour from here. They have a lot of good beers, the most popular being Spotted Cow. For some reason they don't want to expand distribution even though I'm pretty sure they just did a major brewery addition.

    Most likely it'll only be available by the 4 pack in retail take out shops.
  • mrbironmrbiron Posts: 4,408
    I will look for it. Their breakfast stout is still one of my favorites.

    Re-read the article. It'll be available on draft and 750ml bottles. December 1st.

    $25 a pop is steep, but I've made dumber purchases ;)

    At that price I'll be bummed if it tastes lousy($$ wasted) or good(can't afford anymore).

    If you've tried the Kentucky Bourbon Stout, this shouldn't disappoint.

    I have been liking the local fresh hop Pilsners. Pales and IPA's lately. You cannot beat fresh hop brewed beers, IMO.

    I have a confession to make and it pains me to admit this.

    I have been on a 6 month journey to empty all beer out of my fridge to make way for "New Stock"...as of 5:30pm, yesterday afternoon, i.........i.........i ran out of beer :(

    Kegerator is empty, and the only alcoholic beverage in my bar ridge is.....Zima, 2 of them :D

    Pray for me...

    Somehow you survived from late yesterday afternoon until now so there is hope for you yet! But, situation is dire and must be corrected pronto!!!

  • muncybobmuncybob Posts: 1,661
    Just bottled up my 1st batch of home brew. Got 42 12 oz bottles and 6 pint bottles of a brown ale that I think is mid 5 abv. Now to wait another few weeks(if I can).

    Was that a photograph of people waiting for the beer or the loo?

    Edit: I forgot to include that I am drinking the first beer I've had in 3 nights, and it's my first 2017 Sierra Nevada Celebration Fresh Hop IPA. It's very good.

    Treehouse is only available for purchase at the brewery.
    On beeradvocate.com, a number of their beers are ranked in the top #100 in the country. I waited for 1.5 hours. It was 12 degrees with wind chill.

    Yet another of life's stupid decisions...
