    24/7, 365. I don't drink on February 29, during leap years. A person needs to take a break sometime.

    It's been easy to find this year. I even got some at Wegmans while food shopping today. Good luck. On the subject, have you tried Carton's Harvest 2014 yet? That's wet hopped. I haven't gotten to try it yet.

    Easy. The season when Ruin Ten and Stone IRS are on the shelf at the same time.

    Fall. The weather is prime for drinking, and the huge assortment of pumpkin ales and Oktoberfest keep it exciting!

    Personally, I love summer beers. Late fall is a pretty good time too. The two offer a good style/flavor contrast.

    For me, its fall. I love Oktoberfest beers and Oktoberfest in general. As an American of German heritage, I think its a law that Im required to love Oktoberfest.

    Honestly its any season I can get a good IPA and don't have to deal with Pumpkin/Oktoberfest offerings...

    It also doesn't help that we have 10 months of summer and 2 months of spring here....

    Had to choose fall: between Oktoberfest beers and fresh IPA's, it's an easy choice.

    Honorable mention goes to Summer - I love me some cold Pils and other lighter beers when it's roasting outside.

    It's definitely the fall and winter months for me. Summer is great, I have my fair share of beers of the lighter affair however the new releases that are fall and winter are what I look forward to. I've had plenty pumpkin ales this year. Once I'm finished what I have in my stock, I won't be getting more till next year. Bring on celebration, Bigfoot, narwhal,

    Every season seems to bring some variety. Spring and summer are great for Saisons and lighter Belgian beers. During the winter months you can't beat an imperial stout or a barleywine. I welcome the seasonal changes.

    Fall. Still have some beers left from the summer and there are so many great seasonal releases. And the mrs. and I usually take a trip in the fall and I always bring beer home. And the added plus for me - the weather is cooler and more to my liking for beer drinking.

    It's now...fall time. I enjoy beer year round but pumpkin and Oktoberfest are my favorites.

    Just like real seasons, the beauty of beer seasons is that is gives you a nice break from the things you've been drinking and will allow you to change things up a bit. Although, I'll still drink a 12% stout on a 90 degree July day.
