Picked up twelve packs of Sam Adams Oktoberfest, Spaten Oktoberfest and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, the latter to be consumed over the next few days when temps are supposed to climb back into the nineties. Will be hitting the Oktoberfest beers when temps drop in the evening and I've got one bottle of Aventinus left for the grand finale.
I'm drinking a Hop Notch from Uinta Brewing. It's a fairly recent release and I've been loving it ever since. It's always great to see a new full-strength beer in Utah, particularly an IPA.
I bought a sixer of Sam Adams Octoberfest and it is excellent. I can't believe I've never tried this before. I'll definitely be checking out a few more Oktoberfest releases.
Finally broke down and had my first three Oktoberfests of the year -- Great Lakes, Capital and Spaten. Really enjoyed the Great Lakes tremendously; the other two were decidedly inferior to my taste buds. I'm really growing to like Great Lakes' offerings.
