We all know that seasonal beers come out way way before the season they're "meant" for begins. But I've noticed that the early release of Fall seasonals (just mentioned in another thread started today) is far and away complained about the most. I rarely see complaints when Spring beers are out in January or Summer beers start hitting the shelves in April. Even the Winter/Christmas beers that are out before Halloween get fewer complaints, probably because our culture is so bombarded by everything Christmas that the beers don't really stand out. I'd say the second biggest complaint about seasonals is that the Fall ones are also all sold out and gone far too soon. So please don't use this thread to complain about Fall seasonals, but please do post if you have or haven't noticed the same thing, and why do you think this is? Is it because we're perennially in denial about the impending end of summer? Is there a broader allegory to be found here?
