    I hate that the fall beers come out so early. I saw them the 2nd week of August this year. Now I'm not gonna lie I can't wait to pick up a six pack of Shipyards Pumpkinhead but I refuse to do it till after Labor Day

    My wife drinks them, personally I don't like these summer/fall beers. I do like the Smashed Pumpkin, but the Smashed Blueberry is better.

    Yep those are good ...the old fezziweg from Sam Adams is too bitter for my liking, but was a gift so i will drink it. My goto beers are Wachusett Summer, Blue Moon and Bud Black right now. With the occasional Guineas Black and Murphy's mixed in as well.

    I am on a Michigan only beer diet right now. For me fall means Scotch Ale so I am going to order a keg of Dark Horse Scotty Karate.

    They come out early because true Oktoberfest is celebrated in September.

    Ive had a few Sam October this week also. Looking forward to the real thing being available soon, Spaten Oktober, etc.

    Anyone who likes Sam October owes it to themselves to try the real thing. Spaten, Paulaner, Lowenbrau, etc (plus some others Ive never seen here in the states like Hacker-Pschorr)..


    Spaten being my all time favorite :)
    I mean seriously, how could you say no? ;)

    Spaten and Hacker-Pschorr are widely available in my area. Drink a Hacker Pschorr October and you will push the rest away. My absolute favorite Octoberfest (and I drink a bunch of different ones.) Spaten is hot on its heals though. Paulaner is also good stuff.

    Any beer that has been made since 1417 must be doing something right.

    "The brewing process has remained virtually unchanged for over 580 years."

    I'll have to look around for Hacker.. Ive heard of it but never seen it here. Lots of Spaten and Paulaner.

    And other great German brews like Weihenstephaner as wlell but thats not an Oktober....

    Weihenstephaner makes a very good hefeweizen... much better than the Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr product, made more for Americans than for Germans. Another excellent national-level German hefeweizen is Erdinger, but that's a little tougher to find over here. I have not had the October fest product from any of these four, but do enjoy Spaten October.

    Yeah the Weihen heffe is one of my all time faves. All this talk of Oktober has me looking at Oktober reviews on BeerAdvocate. Have to try the Hacker and also Ayinger. We had a new big liquor superstore just open in town with a huge microbrew and import room. Maybe I'll find them this year.....

    :mad::mad: - Rule #1 - Don't make the beer drinking mods mad.;lol

    Although I very much like Weihen I would not consider it a better beer. And I am not sure where the "made for Americans" part comes from. They were making beer for 250 years before America was invented. It has been made the same way the entire time.

    Yeah I never thought of them as being "made for Americans" either... Good example of a "German" beer made for American export is St. Pauli Girl. I think the new products Becks is introducing like "Becks Dark" since they started brewing here are in the same camp? I used to like becks before I knew any better and tried real German beer. he he

    Funny thing is that the one Becks' that inst half bad - their October - is the least authentic being they are from Bremen, not Munich.


    Sorry about the thread jack... we need a German beer lovers thread :)
