Is there such a thing as way too much head? Ohh you were talking about beer..

I heard Jim Koch in an interview saying that the reason for it is to make sure they sell their entire stock.

Whatever the reason, it's still stupid and I wont be buying fall beer til October.

Ant that is why I purchased from my local brewery. Produced at the proper time of year and it was FRESH!

You guys don't understand marketing. The (very wise) crafty brewers are getting Oktoberfest out in March to remind you (oh so stupid) homebrewers that it's time to make some Marzen. They only have your best interest at heart.

I would buy DFH Punkin from late September straight through to Christmas to help make sure the whole stock is sold. But it's long gone before September starts.

if there is a month with at least 1 days in it, I will indiscriminately drink any style of beer. y'all are too hung up on seasons.

At least I'm consistent. I don't drink pumpkin ales or spiced beers when they're in season unless they're free, and I don't drink them the rest of the year either. The last time I opened a seasonal Sam Adams thingie I didn't realize was spiced, I almost spat it out. My immediate, heartfelt reaction (as my wife will attest) was, "WTF is this crap in my beer?" C'mon, guys... who really thinks sticking cinnamon and ginger in a lager is a good idea?!?! If I want cinnamon and ginger, I'll have a slice of pie.

Yeah, I know. I'm not only misanthropic, I'm narrow-minded and refuse to widen my horizons.... and I'm probably outnumbered.
