I had Southern Tier's Pumking last week and loved it.
Dark Pennance although Wookey Jack is better
Olde Mecklenburg Brewery 'Mecktoberfest'
Founders Harvest and Dark Penance, which were great, and Kane Fall Saints which wad really good.
metropolitan - afterburner
lake front - imperial brandy barrel pumpkin
victory - harvest
Narwhal. Wish i had one right now
New Glarus Cran-bic, Bruery Autumn Maple and Cranberry Woods from Cisco
Bells Best Brown....Love it....Ran out and bought a case of 16oz cans. 24 cans for $43....Quite the deal I think.....
Had the harvest on tap the other night....WOW.... hoppy good....blows away all other fest beers I have tried.....
Tried Founders Dark Penance and Harvest for the first time this year. Thought both were excellent.
Apparently I'm not the only one to try Founder's Dark Penance and Harvest for the first time this year.
I'm not sure if it counts as a fall seasonal (if it only comes out in the fall), but Short's Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is also amazing stuff.
Pumking rewrote my book on fall seasonals this year. INSANELY good beer.
Narwhal and Dark Penance
Ayinger's Octoberfest Marzen
Loved loved loved Founders Harvest and Victory Harvest almost as much.
Did not like Dark Penance at all.
Victory Harvest & Stone lucky bastard
Sierra Nevada Vienna Style Lager ... I could drink a lot of that. I also liked Summit's Fest Bier marzen
Firestone Walker Oaktoberfest
Cigar City's Good Gourd and Good Gourd Almighty, both fantastic.
Lagunitas Born yesterday. Had it last night and loved it
Flying Fish - OktoberFish was very good, and inexpensive
Founders Backwoods Bastard. I can't get enough of it unfortunately.
SN Vienne Lager
Sixpoint Sensi Harvest
Founders Mosaic promise
Founders Harvest Ake
Bell's Best Brown
Southern Tier Harvest Ale
Founders Dark Penance
there were others but i forget. its been quite a season of new beers for me
I had Doom as well don't know if it's seasonal but thoroughly enjoyed it
Though I'm not in love with it, I really enjoyed Sam Adams Harvest Saison. Hope to see it again next year.
Sixpoint Sensi Harvest
Troegs Hop Knife Harvest
Troegs Master of Pumpkin
Crown Valley Imperial Pumpkin Smash stout
Coronado Punk’In Drublic Imperial Pumpkin
SN Vienna Lager + Octoberfest
Nothing really blew my mind that I tried for the first time but I enjoyed FW Oaktoberfest and Founders Dark Penance.
I had Founder's Harvest and Dark Penance and Victory Harvest. Impressed with all.
Founders Harvest and Left Hand Oktoberfest. Actually, the LH Oktoberfest was as good as my favorite...Great Lakes.
I don't know if this is truly a seasonal. but Alewerks Lover's Greed was phenomenal. One of my favorite beers of the year.
Southern Tier's Warlock and Pumking. Stupid good.
SN's Flipside Red IPA was very good
Ayinger Oktoberfest was a revelation.
Central Waters Headless Heron
It's a shame for the rest of the country that Port Brewing doesn't get a wider national distro. High Tide is another awesome fresh hop IPA that always makes me smile when it shows up at my local every year.
Had Schlafly's Pumpkin Ale for the first time this year and shame on me it took so long! One of the best out there. I made up for lost time when it popped up on tap at a couple places around here
Also SN's Tumbler, Vienna Lager and basically the whole Fall Pack. The last time I had Tumbler was at least 5 years ago and I was never very impressed with it. But my taste may have matured, because I THOROUGHLY enjoyed it this year.
Leinies Big Eddys Uber Oktoberfest was fantastic, the best of the Big Eddys series I've had.
New Glarus Staghorn
Avery The Kaiser for sure. Amazingly huge beer that remains true to the Marzen style.
The Bruery Autumn Maple and Neshaminy creek Punk less Dunkel
