    Breakfast Stout, Williamsburg Coffehouse Stout, Thunderstruck Coffee Porter, Chocolate Yeti, Schlafly Pumpkin Ale, and I could go on forever. Seasonals/specials seem to be my favorite.

    I enjoy the constant changing of seasonals though summer is quite boring to me.

    While it's true that it would be nice if these were available all the time, I think waiting for them makes them taste all that much better when they do come out!
    Plus what would we have to talk about if they were always available?

    Hahaha! We would probably end up complaining about how much more we're shelling out per week because the beers that used to be "occasional" had become "year-round" offerings.

    Sam doesn't get a whole lot of love at times, but I love their spring seasonal Samuel Adams Alpine Spring. I could easily drink it all year long. Sixpoint Apollo, a Kellerweis, is also a fantastic seasonal that I wish were a year-round offering. Southern Tier Pumking could easily be a year-round favorite too.

    Schlafly Tasmanian IPA! In fact I'd love to see any of their special release brews become year round.

    Sam Adams: Old Fezziwig/holiday porter
    Narrangansett: Porter/Summer
    Sierra Nevada: Hoptimum, celebration
    Smuttynose: Baltic Porter, Pumpkin
    Founders FBS
    Mayflower: Spring Hop

    To be honest I'm kinda glad some of these beers are only available for limited time because it adds to the novelty. Nothing like grabbing that first 12pack of Celebration around Halloween.

    GET CITRA NINJA YEAR-ROUND, IN SIXERS.

    I've been preaching the gospel of this beer, but it's my favorite DIPA and if it were year-round and in a 6-pack, you'd be hearing about a beer in the same league as PtE, Heady Topper, etc.

    Although my area is horrendous for actually obtaining most all rares and even seasonals for that matter. I like the excitement that comes with the revolving choices. For example the Lagunitas Sucks is great! And when it finally hit shelves I have yet to come up for air. Reading that it might be available year round instead of seasonal is kinda of let down instead of something great.

    Call me crazy , but I just like keeping it fresh.

    Nugget Nectar, Kiwi Rising, Founders IS, Palate Wrecker, and YuleSmith (Summer) are all great seasonal offerings that come to mind - all of which I would happily consume at any point during the year
