It’s that time of year again kids and I couldn’t be more excited. For us horror geeks it’s a time where we crack open all of our favorite flicks and go nutty for a full month. For beer geeks it’s the time of year when some of the best seasonal beers hit the shelves and everyone straps on some lederhosen to celebrate Oktoberfest. All in all for a guy like me it’s pretty much heaven for 31 days. It's also a great time to sound like a obnoxious prick by repeatedly pointing out that Oktoberfest is actually in September, but that's a different post.
If there is one thing that sums up Halloween for a booze hound it's the Pumpkin beer. You either love or hate the style but for me it isn't truly fall until I see the pumpkin ales hitting the shelves at my local beer stores. Mark did a stand up job last year of sampling and reviewing a bunch of these beers so instead of downing three or four six packs I'll give you guys a little more insight into the exciting world of Pumpkin beers… while I downing a few six packs.
