    Unless you really try all of these, it is difficult to say which is best. However, when I tasted the Kaiser, at the Avery tap room, I knew, right away, that I was drinking a very special beer. Great tasting lager….you have to try it.

  2. Becky says

    I agree that Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin is fantastic. I also agree with the New Glarus Staghorn Oktoberfest.

    Two other favorites this time of year are Tyranena Painted Ladies pumpkin and O’Fallon Pumpkin Ale.

  3. Joe says

    Founders Breakfast Stout (Awesome beer) is on the list but Two Brothers Atom Smasher isn’t? What gives? 1 vote for Atom Smasher!

  4. Rick Gonzales says

    Pipeline Porter! Roasty malt profile with coffee aroma and flavors. lightly hopped, well balanced. A perfect fall/winter brew.

  5. dcguy says

    autumn maple is great after it ages a couple months, but schlafly pumpkin should definitely be on the list.

  6. Rob says

    The Bruery’s Autumn Maple is the deserved winner, despite the lack of some great Fall seasonals on the list, Autumn Maple is extremely unique, tasty and totally indicative of Autumn. Their Barrel Aged version is even better! So stop hating that your choice was not first.

  7. Justin says

    Flying Dog Dogtoberfest is my vote. It won gold at GABF 2 out of the last 3 years and you don’t have it on the list. Something ain’t right with that!!!

  8. says

    I second the Prosit! What a great beer. I forgot how incredibly drinkable that 9% lager is on the palate. One of my favorite seasonals. RE: Pumpking – I know Danny over at Dawson’s went through 10 cases in two days of the Pumpking. All out already. But to be honest, this year’s tasted a lot like buttered corn more than anything. I want to crack ast years to compare. But it kind of turned me off this year.
