I'll drink oktoberfests any time but I agree about pumpkin beers. Definitely must be cooler.

A: Pay him for the pizza.

Buckeyes should never get into a discussion on educational standards. It brings up too many painful and complex topics like spelling and long division. Now ethics on the other hand... oh wait that's not right either...

I do hear you get deep discounts at local car dealerships, though, so that's cool.

I love football season!

Liked Weyerbacher's probably the best.
Tried the Weyerbacher's last night--
Very good.

It is very good. I ended up buying a case of Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale for $39 instead of a case of Weyerbacher ($59). Kinda regretting the decision, but I generally don't spend over $40 on cases. If the beer costs that much, I usually buy single bottles instead.

Southern Tier Pumking is my favorite. This years isn't as good as last though. I have bought a few bottles the last couple years and it's always worth it.

I've never seen a pumpkin beer in the UK, maybe with some searching I could find one but I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't.

So obviously had to brew my own today! Couldn't find pumpkin so used a squash that was very similar.

Was worried about stuck sparge after doing lots of reading and can't get rice hulls here but I found this to be one of the easiest wort collections I've done.... odd. Saying that the store crush is only good for around 75% efficiency at a push and I made a 40% wheat hefe a couple of weeks ago with no problems.

Oh My God. I just tried Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin for the first time and It's the best I've ever tried. It taste like a pumpkin pie in a glass. WOW.

Agreed. Smashed pumpkin blows ST pumking out of the water

Yeah, Pumking was OK, but this is 10,000 times better. I also have a bomber of Heavy Seas Great Pumpkin, which I've never tried before, but it will have to wait to tomorrow...I can't feel my face as it is.

I consider myself a pumpkin connoisseur, I've tried quite a few. Ichabod by new holland, and O'Fallon's Pumpkin are two of my favorite.
