Right now is my favorite time of year. The closet on the exterior wall is perfect temp for fermenting (just brewed a stout that sat at 60 and still came darn close to erupting) and I can wear a t-shirt and a flannel and be comfortable while brewing. Love it!
Fall brewing! I love it.

I brew more in the summer because I brew outdoors, but I don't stop brewing in the winter - just have to time it with the weather (not usually that hard in California).

All year round. I hate brew days that start at 95 degrees (and by start, I mean that literally at 12:01 in a Florida August, it is 95 degrees) but you know what? Nobody's gonna call me a brew pansie! Plus, I have no room for long term storage, so to keep my pipeline going, I actually need to keep it going.

I brew year round. Summers really suck, especially this last drought ridden summer where temps were regularly well over 100F. But nothing that cold homebrews can't help out!

I have two chest freezers to maintain temps. Hardest part in summer is getting the wort to cool down quickly. I now keep a cooler full of ice water which I run through my IC with a pond pump - problem solved!

I brew year round, adjusting what I brew to the season. The ground water can get a little warm in the summer... end up prechilling the IC water for the last 20-30 deg F.

I brew every two weeks if I can (afford the ingredients and have empty fermenters). So I brew in all seasons. Where I live we have three seasons:

Winter
Bad Sledding
Road Construction

Sounds like here in NE Ohio;winter & orange barrel season! I brew in whatever season I can afford to. Whatever I have a taste for so far. Got a Burton ale & a summer ale going now. Can't stand big,heavy stuff all the time.
