    Tonight's Beer Tasting Lineup

    1) Goose Island's 312, a delicious and Chicago-style (creamy) wheat beer.
    2) Schell's Cream Ale, a mild but creamy beer not unlike a wheat
    3) Spaten Oktoberfest, a festbier, but not in the hand of cards tonight and was quite bland
    4) Paulaner Oktoberfest, a German festbier and in my opinion the best of the style!
    5) Breckenridge Brewery's Hop Peak IPA, a nice and crispy IPA with grapefruit citrus flavors with the crispness of the Rocky Mountain air.
    6) Odell's Mountain Standard IPA, another airy IPA, but this one is sweeter and jucier with a candied pineapple/citrus quality.

    Winner: Paulaner Oktoberfest: This festbier is the best of the style this year among the ones I've tried.

    Runner Up: Hop Peak IPA: Absolutely delicious crispness that reminds me of the Rocky Mountain air

    Loser: Spaten Oktoberfest: Really dissapointed and fell completely flat in aroma/flavor/feel

    Which festbier has been your favorite this year. Do you agree with the Paulaner and Spaten ratings?

    Me too. Only have been to Thirsty Dog’s patio, which was nice but soon to be too cold, and pickup a couple of times from Fat Head’s and Noble Beast. Haven’t eaten in a brew pub or restaurant since March. Any outdoor places your way?

    Genuinely fascinating. I haven't gotten to try any Jack's Abby beers, and that sounds super interesting.

    Can’t surprise you with anything these days. Green Bay has become so mainstream. Guess some Eagle Park is in order for porch visit next week.

    3 Floyds Permanent Funeral “Pale Ale” at 10.5%...it’s back! Been probably a good 4 or 5 years since I last had this one and most likely a similar time frame since they last brewed it. Still is the #11 Imperial IPA in the world on this site surprisingly. Some “old money“ right here!

    Actually quite reminiscent of the old batches. Brings huge citrus and tropical notes in the form of grapefruit, orange, lemon, papaya, pineapple, and mango, along with a nice pine resin and citrus peel bitterness. The alcohol is slightly there when it warms, but overall this is damn smooth for the abv. I had my doubts, but this one is actually living up to memories I hold with this beer. I might have to grab another 4 pack.

    Still love this series and this batch. I also think it pumps the breaks on some retailers selling old ass IPA's.

    Finally getting to this great unfiltered lager. Good thing they warm you about the lack of filtration on the label. Smells like sourdough bread and freshly mown grass.

    It's funny how that is, my kids are in their late 30's and It seems like yesterday I was bringing them home from the hospital, teaching them how to ride a bike, hitting a baseball, paying for school ect. I used to get mad when my parents treated me like a kid when I was older, now I understand why. Cheers.
