Hey, it's been in the low 80s in Virginia this week; the weather has cooled off.

Winking Lizard(restaurant /bar) serves DFH on tap and rims the glass with brown sugar.
It's actually pretty good that way.

Winking Lizard is my favorite bar in Cleveland! I love that you brought that up. And I had DFH there last year with the brown sugar rim. It was different, but I agree it was pretty good!

No you are weird -- I know a lot that say the same thing.

Sorry g-star.
I meant "not" weird. Texting got away from me.

Glad to see some restaurants finally offering a better selection beers on tap.

They have just opened a couple of pizza places here in Columbus -- mellow mushroom.

Surprisingly good selection of beers on tap.

Liked Weyerbacher's probably the best.
Surprised u didn't like Shipyard-- I thought it had a more pronounced pumpkin flavor

I like Mellow Mushroom (we've got a ton here in Florida) but knowing they have stooped so low as to open one in Columbus, I will never eat or drink there again.

I don't advocate wasting beer but I do agree with your stance on pumpkin brews.

Apendecto and KayaBrew:

May the Great Pumpkin descend upon you, flog you until you are too weak to cry, and then remove your tongue forcibly from your mouth for such blasphemy!
