Welcome to week two of my Octoberfest experiment! While I've never been to the real deal in Germany, Octoberfest seasonal brews are probably my favorite seasonal offerings of the year. Over the duration of September and into October, I am going to be trying many of the seasonal brews available in San Antonio, with the aim of crowning the best Octoberfest brew.
Well guys, Labor day has come and gone. We're officially moving out of the summer and transitioning into the fall. Fall is a great time to live in the U.S. of A. It's a time of football and Octoberfest brews. It means basketball season, Thanksgiving and Christmas are almost here. Unfortunately, it also means that just about every commodity on earth will be released as "pumpkin", "pumpkin spice" or something of a similar variety. As someone who wasn't born in America, this obsession with pumpkins, cinnamon and a plethora of other weird spices that makes my nose hurt is completely bewildering.
What's up y'all? Its early September which means it's almost Octoberfest! While I have never been, but would love to go, to a proper Bavarian Octoberfest celebration, I still enjoy the Octoberfest seasonal beers. To be honest, this is BY FAR my favorite time of the year from a seasonal beer perspective.
