I love Oktoberfests. Great Lakes is my favorite, but not my only love. I jump on them when they first come out, even though late July is too early. Two cases or more of various brands have made their way through my fridge and it's not even September. By October I will tire of them and move on to stout, Celebration, etc. The OF's will disappear and I won't miss them, until they pop up next year. I really appreciate and drink a lot of them, but feel if they were year round I wouldn't drink or appreciate them as much. I sometimes wish brown ales were seasonal. I really enjoy them, but I always seem to grab IPA's and whatever else is new at the moment. Maybe I would appreciate them more if they were only around for a few months a year. Does anyone else feel this way about Oktoberfests or another style?
