So it's November now, and getting to be that time of year when I wean myself off IPAs (slightly), and embrace the season(als). A lot of the seasonal stuff is on store shelves now, so I figured I'd share a few of my favorites and get some recommendations for others that.

Here's some of what I'm looking forward to:

Tröegs Mad Elf, Victory Old Horizontal, Delirium Noël, Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence, Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale

A few others I like this time of year: (not necessarily seasonals)

Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot, St. Bernadus Abt 12

Do you have any recommendations for the holidays? I'm especially interested in good winter warmers and spiced ales. Please share your favorites!

Don't forget, its also barleywine season! Killer Penguin and Old Guardian head that list for me. I'm also a big fan of Mephistopheles stout from Avery

I do like Old Guardian! Killer Penguin is actually available near my parents' house, and that's where I'll be come Christmas, so I might be able to get my hands on that.
