Octoberfest Brews
« on: August 26, 2016, 02:08:35 PM »
September is the month to celebrate (correction:any month is) and these seasonal's are flowing to a vendor near you.

Able to try about a half dozen locally (kind of rural) and would value some feedback from you big city out of staters so I might search out some not so easy to find fest and pumpkin brews. Sam Adams' is the top seller though I'm currently enjoying this season's Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest. Very tasty!
Also saw Abita which are generally too thin lest they be found on draft. My son warned my to steer clear of another in the Shoals area. But hey, taste is subjective especially when malt, yeast, hops, grains and sugars are involved.

Anyway...let's hear it!

On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk

Agree.
Fuck Starbucks. They haven't a corner or any solitary right to any flavor to the best of my knowledge.

And a pumpkin has as much business in a brew as a goddamned pineapple...Sculpin or no!

Not a pumpkin fan myself but you sir are a pumpkin bigot.

Haven't really found many uses for the pumpkin beyond kids and adults with too much time on their hands carving them for Halloween.
Pumpkin pie?
Nope...like sweet potato much more.

Fall beer yes. But pumpkin has no place in a beer. Wes is absolutely correct here.

NO to PUMPKIN!
DULY NOTED!

Folks can you just ignore the pumpkin part of that site above and move on to discuss the fall seasonal beers that you like or can access as was the purpose of this thread?

Jesus you sonsabitches lock in to some minute flaw like Trump's toupee and can't see him for anything else.
He has substance people.





Now on to the beer will ya?

Some people rave about a local out of Birmingham called Snakehandler. And don't get me wrong, I like some pine notes but this brew (to me) tastes like it contains a fair amount of Pinesol.
And nothing against Pinesol 'cause it sure makes for some clean smelling bathrooms.

But I digress: The pumpkin has destroyed Octoberfest, certainly the intent of this thread.
Fuck you pumpkin! And fuck your cousin Hazelnut too.

Pine trees and sap also have no place in beer. That's what gin is already there for.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.
