    Weihenstephaner Vitus. I much prefer the original more, but my most favorite brewery, by far.

    Picked up a couple of sixers from Oskar Blues. Old Chub and Dale's Pale Ale. both winners. the Pale Ale is almost an IPA, citrusy and very refreshing. Will definitely be a staple for me next summer. The Old Chub is a scotch ale. Not familiar with the style but it reminds me of a belgian dubbel, although with less of a booze (although still 8% abv) and yeast flavor. Very enjoyable although it seems like something I would buy a bomber of rather than a whole 6 pack.

    [​IMG]was at backroads brewery yesterday for their octoberfest. 20 bucks for all you can drink, and three floyds was present with first day tapping of Snow Weasel. "Dry Hopped Porter" that was unreal.
    ya I drank it all day.

    Bronze age by Stillwater. Farmhouse ale. I don't remember much but it had a little Brett, citrus, rich fruit notes, but mostly caramel.

    Gueuze from tilquin.

    Honestly one of the best gueuzes I've ever had. Reminds me of cuvée de castleton but it's richer, maltier, and it is yeasty, bready, toasty, and also has strong acidity. Tropical fruits and lots of citrus. It's like a champagne made methode traditionelle but tons more acidity and smells and tastes like epoisses. Delicious. Was sad when it ended

    At $11 a bottle it's expensive but IMO worth it. If you find it pick it up

    Have you tried Schneider Aventinus? Curious how it compares. I've never seen this, or I would have tried it.

    just finished their stateside saison, no specific notes, it was ok.

    Also had a Monk's Care Flemish Sour which I remembered to be pretty decent, maybe my tastes are off from getting off a cold but it was pretty horrible.

    much much better was bockor cuvee des jacobins rouge.... mmmmmm

    continuing with the bad, this is one of the most disgusting beers I have had in ages. Also very true to its name

    and while not the pinnacle of saisons, I've really been enjoying the saison du buff this year.

    Was pleasantly surprised with this DIPA... Obviously Alpine is pretty notorious for its tasty hops and this collab didn't disappoint for the price.

    Red Hoptober is the best beer I've ever had from New Belgium.
