I love grilling amongst the orange foliage around my deck with a tasty saison in hand, as well as sitting by the fire on a cool evening while sipping a warming imperial stout. And those brews aren't even fall seasonals! That's right folks, we have many autumn-specific beers that are awaiting us at the liquor stores, with more still to come!
Oh, where to begin...
- the classic lager of fall, Oktoberfest Märzen, available from many different breweries
- many iterations of "Harvest" ales - some floral and fruity, some malty sweet
- spicy and delicious pumpkin beers
- fresh/wet hop brews, made with hop cones picked straight from the bine
I'm also happy to be attending the Autumn Brew Review for my first time this Saturday, which is big event put on by the Minnesota Craft Brewer's Guild. There will be many tasty beers to sample in my favorite kind of weather. If your interested, check out the details here. They still have tickets available for Session 1, which starts at 10am.
Fall, I'm ready for you. Let's make it a good one.
