    We also had Genny 12 Horse Ale suddenly show up here in Chicago this summer as part of a mixed twelve pack. Oddly, the flagship Genny Lager (aka "Red Eye" due to the distinctive label) has yet to be seen.

    Re: What beer are you drinking - Autumn '12

    Autumn for me means it is Pumpkin Ale season in my house! I have scraped together about 8-10 different offerings and so far Southern Tier's Pumking is the leader of the pack. Much more pumpkin taste rather than just pumpkin spice in the typical garden variety pumpkin ale.

    Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale falls more in the spice dominated category but is a little different in the spices that are emphasized.

    Still to come is Dogfish Head Punkin Ale, Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale and Smashed Pumpkin Ale as well as Heavy Seas The Great Pumpkin among others!

    Had my first can of Ten Fidy imperial stout from Oskar Blues last night.

    I'm in love. So roasty yet silky at the same time. I'm suddenly questioning my loyalty to Founder's Breakfast Stout -- having them back to back, the coffee in the FBS seemed really overdone. Note to self: don't mix styles so much during a session.

    Founder's Breakfast Stout has managed to slip under my radar so far but I'll seek it out before too long now that the cool weather is here to stay. I still haven't tried the Ten Fidy either and must admit that the price puts me off. Nevertheless, I'll be picking some up this weekend due to all the rave reviews.

    A whole bunch of SA Utopias
    Bruery Black Tuesday
    Central Waters Barrel aged Barelywine
    GI BCBS
    Bull and Bush Legend of the Liquid Brain
    Foothills Sexual Chocolate
    3 Floyds Zombie Dust
    Olde Hickory Event Horizon
    Founders KBS
    Bruery Smoking Wood
    Alpine Bad Boy
    Firestone Walker Velvet Merkin
    Russian River Toronado Anniversary Brew
    Brooklyn Black Ops
    Avery Odios Equum & Oud Floris
    Fifty Fifty Eclipse


    These were my standouts from GABF 2012. A big night of big beers. I have to say it's kind of odd to see SA pouring Utopias out of a pitcher filled from a keg. I'll take it though. Tonight was a barleywine and stout night for me. With the exception of the zombie dust and the Avery Sours I stayed away from the sours and IPAs this year and am thankful I did.

    Got a case of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout on sale yesterday (only $4 per four pack instead of the usual $10). I love this beer!

    Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale that I got as part of a variety 12 pack. Not bad for a pumpkin ale, but not nearly as good as the Dogfish Head Punkin.

    I'm drinking an Epic Brewing Fest Devious, which could mean any of a number of things... but in this case, it's a wet hop Harvest Ale, made with locally grown hops.

    http://www.epicbrewing.com/home/item...vious-release-

    Epic is a fairly new brewery that makes exclusively beer that you can't sell in the grocery store in Utah (you know, greater than 4% alcohol.) Here we can only get them in 22 oz bottles, elsewhere I know they sell kegs as well. They make a lot of really good beers, and they're always changing and experimenting.
