never had that one! they do make seasonal beers that stretch the term "beer" but they usually taste pretty good.

I'm just not a fan of sweet flavored beer I guess.

I like Blue Moon (very similar to regular Leinenkugel), but I can only have one or two before it's sweetness overload.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

Man I hate that summer is over, but the fall/winter brews kinda ease the pain a bit. I picked up some Dogfish Head Punkin Ale the other day and damn it's tasty. Can't wait for Sierra Nevada's Celebration Ale and Brooklyn Brewery's Black Chocolate Stout. Also want to try DFH's Chicory Stout.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

I guess this is more of a craft beer than a microbrew, but I really like almost every type of Leinenkugel I've had. I think their Red Lager is especially good for tailgating and it seems appropriate for Skins games.

The only thing tastier then Punkin Ale out of a bottle is Punkin Ale on tap. It's very tasty, had it a few weeks ago at their Brewpub in Rehoboth. The Chicory Stout is good too.

Sam Adams makes a great Octoberfest, probably my favorite. I had Flying Dog's Dogtoberfest not too long ago and it's good.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

Damn right Matty. Love fall brews. I'm currently loving the Rogue Dead Guy IPA. It's not a fall beer per se, but one of the best IPAs I've ever had. And pretty much anything that Brooklyn makes is money.

One of the bartenders at DFH turned me on to this.

Buy some Punkin Ale, and also get some 90 minute IPA. Half and Half the two... it's unreal.

Lenies kick it. I think someone on here pooped on the Berryweiss, I haven't had it, but everything else I have had is good.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

This doesn't so much offer up a tip on a new beer to rush out and try, because everyone's had it, but I just love it and rejoice for this time of year because of it:

Sam Adam's Octoberfest

Just awesome.

GM, correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to recall you celebrating the beer selection at the liquor store near the Avalon Theatre at the Chevy Chase circle, yes? Well, if you're an IPA fan, you'll find the Two Hearted IPA by Bells Beer at that store. Bells is a Michigan brewery that has entered the DC market with a bang. I went to an event they hosted at the Brickskeller about a year and a half ago, and I love their stuff. I've recommended the Two Hearted so often that Bells ought to be paying me for the sheer scope of my advertising.

That same store carries the Green Flash brewery's IPA and Hop Head brew. Love the Hop Head. Also, wait until December for the Mendocino Brewing Company's seasonal IPA--I bought out the store's remaining two cases last year because it's so good.

I may have to make my way to the Alehouse in G'burg to do this...

Do it. and get the chesapeake pizza. Delicious old bay pizza topped with crab and asparagus. yum...

I miss living in Gaitherburg. It was great to get home from work and meet up with the boys at DFH and watch the Caps dominate. Its weird how when the caps had their playoff run, every bar turned into a sports bar.

Can't wait until the Skins bring that back.

Great freakin' beer. We switched our taps over from Summerfest recently... and there really is no comparison. Octoberfest > the rest of the seasonals. Winter lager isn't bad either.
