I'm liking a Virginia-based brewery, Legend. Their version of a marzen/Oktoberfest beer is ridiculously tasty. Very malty.

I had the Great Lakes Oktoberfest, and while it was good, I was a bit underwhelmed. May have to give it another shot.

Anyone had Brooklyn Brewery's Oktoberfest? Wanna try that one...
Red Hook Pumpkin Porter has a good flavor IMO

I tried Saranac Pumpkin Ale, didnt like it too much. It was a bit too sweet for my taste. Cinnamon/Vanilla flavor

Brooklyn Oktoberfest is pretty good too. And Sam Oktoberfest is always a safe bet. I like it better on tap than in the bottle though.

I can't stand pumpkin beer or any fruit beers for that matter

There are some decent hard ciders out there though

I have this shit downstairs in my fridge. Drank four of them on Sunday while putting up the Christmas lights and I had to finish the lights on Monday. 9.9% alcohol!!! Should have read the label first. Holy shit. Not a huge fan of this, had to drink it really cold to enjoy it.

How does this one shape up?
Pretty hoppy brew. Smooth tho.

And yeah like J'Hardcore suggested, gotta have them real cold. I pour them into a chilled glass. I love all of the Lagunita brews

It's not super Hoppy. I thought it was more boozy and sweet. This shit is good if you don't want to feel feelings for a while. Duder, send the kid over to Grandma's and whack down a sixer in 9 months baby Duder will have a sibling.

Wife bought me a bottle of Chimay Vintage for Xmas, good but a little too heavy & fruity for my taste.

Not wanting to be blasphemous but for $20, I'd rather have had a couple of bottles of Brut from Chef's neck of the woods.

I bought Kirkland Light Beer today from Costco out of pure curiosity. It was 20 bucks for 48 beers. It's as awful as one would expect a 42 cent beer to be but it's 42 cents a beer. I'll keep you guys updated on how much I drink lol.

I drank three of them. I don't feel good about it. Both mentally and physically.

Better or worse than Keystone, do you think? I used to drink those Keystones like crazy, it's not like they're real beer but they drink pretty good in the summer heat.

Yeah, shitty like that. Keystone, Natural Lite, Milwaukees Best. They're definitely tapping the frat boy market here.

Worst beer I ever had, Rainier Ice

and that's coming from someone that once drank a case of warm Pabst Genuine Draft in the desert

Great beer I tried recently was 'Back in Black' from 21st Amendment brewery in San Francisco. Very good if you like dark beers.
