I've really been enjoying tequila flavored beer at the moment. But I think it may be better in small doses. Or maybe I just need to line my stomach better before I drink.

Can anybody recommend any good pumpkin beers? I'm not into the whole pumpkin craze per say as a lot of people get this time of year. The only one I've had so far is Shipyard out of Rochester. I'm still waiting for Sam Adams to put out their fall collections and I know they do a pumpkin beer or 2 that I've had in years past.

I enjoy the Shipyard, another good one is Rosemarys Baby.

Bluepoint makes a great Octerberfest. Not Pumpkin but very good.

I've only tried their Toasted Lager and it was great (at least at Yankee Stadium). I bought a 6 pack and it wasn't as good. I swear, I don't know what temperature Yankee Stadium serves their beer but that's the best Guinness and Bluepoint I've ever had was at their place. Thanks for the recommendation DuesPaid. I won't find it where I'm at but when I'm home for the holidays, maybe they'll have some left over?

I didn't have much success in tracking down pumpkin beers this year but I didn't look that hard either. I had the Harvest Pumpkin which was in the Sam Adams fall variety pack. Now I guess it's on to Christmas/winter beers. I enjoy Sam Adams Winter Lager and might see if anything jumps out to me this year to try.

I picked up one of those fall packs of Sam, it was really good, have the two coffee ones left, will try soon.
The black lager and leaf something as well as the Pumpkin was really good.

Also looking forward to the Holiday variety pack, The Fezzie Wig ale in that park is the best, I wish I could buys an entire case of that Stuff.

Same Adams is a great Beer, I always have and serve it On Thanksgiving every year.

Enjoy

Sam Adams if my favorite. And yes, I always get the variety packs as well. I wasn't crazy about the coffee one but I don't like coffee. It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Same with the Black Lager as well. That didn't have a heavy bite to it which I liked. One of my favorites was the Porch Rocker which is in the Spring or Summer variety. They've started to release it in 6-packs as of last year.

Saw the Sam Adams winter variety last night and I was unimpressed: Boston Lager, Winter Lager, Chocolate Bock, Holiday Porter, Old Fezziwig and Sam '76. Really!? Instead of creating something new for the holidays you stick in Sam '76? Disappointed. I'll still need to get some 6 packs of the Winter Lager though.

Yeah the fall pack wasn't bad. I tried Sam '76 but I wasn't much of a fan of it.

Yeah, I thought it tasted tart, like a grapefruit.

Over the holiday I grabbed Sapporo and Sam Adams Winter Lager (the liquor store I went to didn't really have anything that jumped out at me). I've had them both before and I was in the mood for the Winter Lager. The Sapporo I got just to have another 6 pack and I did have one of their pints again recently so I wanted some more. However, I did go to another liquor store and got some of the Sam Adams White Christmas. I tried this for the first time either last year or in 2016 and out of the 3 I picked up, it was definitely my favorite!

I also picked up a few of these. I thought they were kinda cool. They're 25.4 fluid ounces of Miller High Life and the bottle is shaped like a champagne bottle. Pretty cheap too. Only about $3 per bottle.

I made my own 6-pack this week to try some beers/liquors I never had before but didn't want to buy an entire 6-pack of in case I didn't like it. This is one feature that not a lot of places in New York don't have (at least in my experience) and one which I absolutely love! I picked up: Stiegl Gold (this is their lager but for some reason, the liquors stores around me only sell the Stiegl Grapefruit which I don't like. I much prefer the Gold!), Brooklyn Brewer's Winter Lager (it's described as having chocolate, roasted barley, and dark bread. I wasn't a huge fan of it as it tasted more like a stout and I'm not much of a stout fan), Duvel (which I've seen a lot of recently but have never tried it), Lagunitas Brown Shugga' (I've never heard of this but wanted to try it because they've added brown sugar to it), and finally Henry's Hard Soda both the Grape and Orange flavors. I'm currently sipping on the Orange now and it's not bad but you can definitely taste the alcohol. On mix drinks like this I usually don't like to taste the alcohol so much but want to feel the effects, if that makes sense. I'll go through the rest and see how they are.

Very interesting, with all that detail , I will keep in mind those points , to offer recommendations on beers.
I will first say recently I had a founders called Backwoods Bastard ( you will not like) - so I don’t recommend for you, it taste like a boiler maker, its beer fermented in whisky casts, I love it.

Here is one I think you may like... I just ordered a case of it for the Holidays.
It’s from the Left Hand Brewerey called Pole Star Pilsner, easy drinker with a punch.

Here is my first Beer for my advent beer of the day.
This is an outstanding German IPA

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll have to keep it in mind and see if I can't buy a single to try. I tried the Lagunitas Brown Shugga' earlier and I wasn't a fan. Didn't taste the brown sugar at all and tasted more like an IPA (which I'm not a fan of either).

I like to drink a lot when I drink, so pilsner is my favorite. Veltins or Heineken.

Not a huge fan of Belgian beers. Took a chance and got burned. The Stiegl was probably my favorite but I've had that before so I knew what I was getting. Overall, not a great bunch but glad I only had to buy 1 of each instead of being stuck with a 6-pack with some of this stuff.

I went by the liquor store on the way home today and made another 6 pack although I didn't try any tonight as they weren't cold enough: the Budweiser Copper Lager with Jim Beam (I've had it before but wanted another), Not You Father's Fruit Punch, Not Your Father's Moutain Ale Citrus Brew, Harpoon Winter Warmer (they got me on the Cinnamon & Nutmeg ingredients), Harpoon Dunkin' Coffee Porter (which I'm expecting to be terrible but curious enough to try it) and one which I've never heard before, Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Urbock
